Your HVAC System Might Be Overworked If…

  • You struggle to maintain the temperature you desire. A well-functioning HVAC system will feel effortless, letting you select the exact temperature you want in your home. But if you notice that your home is hotter or colder than you want (even if it’s been running all day) you might want to look into potential HVAC issues.
  • You are dealing with frequent repairs. Leaks and other mechanical issues (especially when they’re recurrent) are a tell-tale sign of an overworked system. If you’re getting to know your HVAC repair specialist’s number by heart, it could be time to make a change.
  • Your energy bill is higher than If you’ve been living in your house for a while and haven’t made major changes to the way you consume energy, why is your monthly bill suddenly higher? An overworked HVAC system could be the culprit, since it has to work extra-hard to deliver the heating and cooling you’re used to.

How Air Sealing Can Breathe New Life Into Your System

If you suspect an overworked HVAC system, don’t worry — there are solutions! One step the team here at Attic Man can help you with is a blower door test, which can help us identify potential leaks in your system. Once we have a game plan, air sealing is a natural next step for many homes with HVAC issues. Through this process, we prevent conditioned air from sneaking out of your home (and, conversely, outside air from sneaking in). By taking care of any leaks, we lighten the load on your system and allow it to work more efficiently — good news for you and your energy bill, as you’ll be able to enjoy the temperature you want, when you want it.

In addition to better temperature control, air sealing promotes the actual quality of air in your home. This service helps fortify your home’s barrier against insects, rodents, potential allergens, and other unwelcome pollutants that can affect your breathing at home — making it an all-around solution for those looking to breathe a little easier indoors.
