Do you find yourself sweating profusely when inside your house —especially during the summer season? Many people are quick to put the blame for this on the air conditioner. However, there are plenty of other things around the house that can exacerbate the problem Here are some of the common issues that roofing and gutter experts run into when a customer complains about having difficulty cooling their home.
Poor Attic Insulation
Insulation in the attic is one of the most important features of a property. If you’re not sure whether there’s adequate insulation throughout your home, you should immediately schedule a home energy assessment or maintenance visit. In addition to the attic, insulation is also needed in the walls and floors. A home that’s well-insulated can prevent mold growth, water damage and the spread of allergens.
Gaps Around the House
If there are cracks around the house, conditioned air will easily slip through and escape. Even though your HVAC unit may be in perfect condition, some areas in your home may still be difficult to cool. However, this isn’t all: gaps around the doors and windows can also let in warm outdoor air. Make sure that there’s no air leakags by performing duct sealing or replacing your exterior components.
Dirty HVAC System
Your heating and cooling systems need regular maintenance in order to function properly. If you’re having a hard time conditioning the air in your home, this may be a sign that your HVAC system needs to be scrubbed down. Dusty filters and ducts can circulate harmful contaminants and pollutants throughout your house, triggering asthma and allergy symptoms.
