How Proper Ventilation and Insulation Improve Home Comfort

Ventilation and insulation are two things that homeowners rarely ever think about. They also happen to be two very important factors for homeowners’ quality of life. It is often the small, the subtle, and the unseen that do the most good, or the most harm, when talking about something like a home environment. In this post, we’re going to show you how the ways in which ventilation and insulation contribute to the quality of your home environment, and what you can do to help preserve that quality.

Ventilation

Ventilation refers to any means by which air is circulated throughout your house, including air ducts, windows, doors, etc. The windows and doors in your house tend to be rated on how well they actually insulate your home, so we’ll leave that for the next section. With regards to ventilation, the most important part of your home is the air ducts.

Air ducts are the lungs of your home, responsible for circulating air throughout the house. Unfortunately, most ducts are quite neglected because of their unobtrusive natures. Ducts need maintenance as much as any other system in your house. Without regular cleaning and sealing, ducts can easily develop leaks that lead to wasted heat. The US Department of Energy estimates that forced air heating systems lose up to 30% of their heat on average to duct leaks. If you regularly have your ducts serviced by a professional, however, you can drastically improve your ventilation and your indoor air quality.

Insulation

How well your house maintains a comfortable temperature throughout the year depends largely on the quality of its insulation. A well-insulated home will stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, while a poorly insulated home will be closer to the temperature outside. Insulation ability can apply to doors and windows, as mentioned above. However, mostly it applies to the material installed in your walls and ceilings. This material serves to hinder heat transfer between the house and the outside environment, allowing your climate control systems to be more effective. It does degrade over time, though, so every couple of years you should have a professional look at it to see if it needs replacing.

2.7.24Jay Cruz, technician, arrived on time today to service/check my ac/heating. Jay arrived timely and was friendly. Jay checked my inside unit, ceiling vents, etc and he made some recommendations. He was easy to talk to and very professional. He will be sending me an email with the recommendations and costs associated so that I can save the money to have these taken care of. I will say, no other technician has been as proficient as Jay.Yesterday, 2.6.24, I received a call from Betty. Betty was also very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. She listened to me and made recommendations and advice. By the end if the call, I felt like Betty was a friend.Thank you to Jay and Betty!Late one evening I was washing clothes. Daughter noticed water on floor under washer. I was so upset and worried about finding someone to fix the problem, whatever it was, and especially the cost. Goettl this the rescue! Namely, their employee/plumber, Chris! The next day, Chris came, found the clog in my pipes, and…voilà! We joined their $14.95 per month plan and that was all we paid for a job well done! Thank you!3.26.24Tyler Leija was great! He checked my drain pipe outside with a camera. Advised everything was clear. He checked my kitchen and master bathroom sinks and toilet. Tyler was friendly, but professional. Thank you.4.17.24Frank M arrived here on time. He was friendly and professional. He explained everything he was going to do today.

Roy A. was a pleasure to work with. He thoroughly and expertly explained all of the issues with my system with pictures and videos. He was transparent about the remediation options available to me and patiently reviewed each option with me. The install team, Daniel and Roy, were equally as awesome. They too were extremely knowledgeable, patient with my questions, and worked diligently to get my new unit up and running safely in one day. I couldn’t have asked for a better team.
