Did you know that insulating and air sealing your home may change the way your heating/cooling system works? How about your family’s comfort?

Your home works as a system where the insulation system needs to match the heating/cooling and the air exchange systems. If you upgrade your insulation or do more air sealing in your home to prevent heat and energy loss, you may have to make slight modifications to your heating/cooling system to get fresh air in during the cold months.

The way to ensure that your insulation systems is working with your home’s mechanical systems is to have a professional contractor do a home energy assessment.

A home energy assessment is a holistic approach to evaluate your homes performance needs.
