How to Upgrade Heating System Efficiency

Efficiency becomes a growing concern for homeowners. No one wants to spend extra money for the same amount of heating and air conditioning. With a bit of help from your HVAC technicians, the choice to upgrade heating system efficiency is simple and intelligent.

Improving the efficiency of the central air system also means improving the efficiency of the home. To do this, insulation becomes a key method.

Upgrade Heating System Efficiency Through the Air Ducts

No matter how expensive and state-of-the-art your central air system is, without proper air ducts, the work your central air does is no use. This is because air ducts are what carry conditioned air in and out of the house. For this reason, if air ducts have leaks or holes, cleaned and heated air can easily seep out while dirty air enters. Leakage forces your central air to heat the same air over and over again, costing you more. It also lowers indoor air quality.

Air ducts acquire holes and leaks for several reasons:

  • Recent construction in the attic space
  • Obstruction
  • Tears made by animals
  • Natural aging

To prevent energy loss and upgrade heating system efficiency, have leaks and holes repaired. Then, ask your HVAC contractor to insulate the air ducts.

Insulation completely seals the air duct system, locking cleaned and conditioned air within the duct system. It also safely transports cleaned air back into your home for comfort. These two steps together will certainly upgrade heating system efficiency.

Upgrade Heating System Efficiency and Opt for Attic Insulation

The attic space is a special environment that gets little to no attention. Unfortunately, it can impact air conditioning in a bad way. This is because the air in the attic has ventilation or filtration but receives the brunt of the blow when it comes to extreme outdoor temperature. Consequently, the severe temperature contrast in the attic can undo air conditioning in your home.

To upgrade heating system efficiency, insulate the attic. Insulation helps block those large temperature swings, keeping outdoor weather out of the house. Attic insulation by itself can save major energy costs.

Seal Home Windows and Doors to Upgrade Heating System Efficiency

Lastly, to upgrade heating system efficiency caulk and weather-strip windows and doors. All the small crevices and cracks in your home add up to larger energy losses. To retain heat indoors, have these crannies and gaps sealed.
