This is a question that we get often from our clients. We also get “What is home performance?” Home performance involves making your household more energy efficient so that you can save money throughout your years of residence there, and also improving the indoor air quality of your space so that you breathe clean air year-round. From sealing drafty spots in your building envelope to testing your air ducts to make sure that they are sealed enough to keep your HVAC system energy efficient, home performance can do wonders for your day-to-day.
So, how can you improve your home performance? There are plenty of ways to proceed. You need to make sure that you’re taking steps to improve something that’s actually worth improving as well as targeting those areas that require your immediate attention. Let’s have a look at a few common options.
- Air sealing. This term describes the procedure whereby the drafty parts of your building envelope are sealed. This allows you to have greater control over how your home is ventilated, and it’s often the first step towards improving your home’s energy efficiency. When your home is adequately sealed, you should see great gains in your comfort and the minimization of energy costs.
- Insulation replacement. When it comes to energy efficiency, few things are as essential as your insulation. You need to make sure that it’s properly installed so that you can enjoy years of excellent comfort. This is particularly the case if you own and operate a whole house heating and cooling system. There are plenty of options, from spray foam and blown-in insulation to rigid foam board and conventional batt fiberglass.
- Whole house air purification. One of the problems with portable air filters and purifiers is that they do not function quite as they should. A whole house air purifier may be just what you need to make sure that your entire living space is cleaned of airborne contaminants and pollutants.
