In the summer, the last thing you want is for your home to lose cool air. Not only is it a waste of money, but it can be frustrating trying to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. Here are some of the most common places where your Ogden, NC, home can lose cool air:
Windows and Doors
If you have ol single-pane windows or doors with poor seals, chances are cool air is escaping from your home. One way to fix this problem is to upgrade to new energy-efficient windows and doors. Not only will this help improve the energy efficiency of your home, but it /ll also help reduce the amount of cool air that’s lost. What’s more, it’ll help to improve your indoor air quality.
Holes and Cracks
Another common place where homes lose cool air is through holes and cracks in the walls, ceilings and floors. These small openings can add up to a big problem when it comes to losing cool air. To solve this problem, you’ll need to call a service tech who will seal any holes or cracks that you find.
Hot air rises, so if your attic doesn’t have adequate insulation, all that heat will escape through the roof of your home. To avoid this problem, call in a service tech to inspect whether your attic is properly insulated and ventilated. This will help keep the temperature in your attic consistent with the rest of your home and prevent heat from escaping through the roof.
If you have a fireplace in your home, chances are good that there’s a hole in your roof where the chimney meets the roofline. This hole can allow hot air to enter your home in the summer and cold air to enter in the winter. You’ll need to install a chimney cap or close off the flue when it’s not in use.
