Inconsistent Room temperatures can be something that’s quite annoying if your a home owner. Let’s just say for example that the freezing cold temperatures in your bedroom at night are what prevents you from falling asleep at night? Maybe it felt blistering hot in your kitchen while you were cooking breakfast this morning or it’s probably due to the muggy conditions causing the stuffy air to filter into your home from the outside. Things such as humidity and poor air quality can be contributing factors that result in inconsistent room temperatures but aren’t necessarily the reason why you’re experiencing drastic changes in room temperature. Whatever the problem is you just want it fixed because at the present moment your home is an unbearable living environment and it’s miserable inside the home.
Living in a larger home with several hundred of square footage can seem like an almost impossible task when it comes to maintaining a consistent temperature throughout your home. What you don’t realize is that there are several cracks and gaps located throughout the home which are contributing factors that can potentially affect the inconsistent temperatures throughout the home. Not to worry though you have options available to you and everything isn’t as doom and gloom as it may appear to be on the surface. However, in order to resolve the issue you must first understand the circumstances.
While your beautiful home was built in the last five years and has a modern look that you would like maintain it lacks some of the everyday comforts that we as creatures of habit are use to having available to us almost immediately. Have you ever bothered asking yourself what changes that you could possibly make to my home so that the room temperatures is consistent throughout the home? What if you live in older home? How does something like this impact you? After all your home isn’t exactly new. Did you know that over 90% of the homes in the United States built before 1980 are severely under insulated and that this is one of the contributing factors for inconsistent room temperature through out the home? Besides a pretty big electric bill you could potentially experience some discomfort in your home during the course of the year if you allow a problem like inconsistent temperatures throughout the home to linger because your home is severely under insulated.
In fact did you know that wasted energy loss occurs wherever there is a transfer of temperature? Culprits include windows, doors, walls, fixtures, and appliances. The biggest transfer of temperatures in your house – winter and summer – is through your roof and the top-floor ceilings. This is why it’s imperative to have superior insulation and air sealing in your attic areas. It’s the single best thing you can do to save energy in your home. If you are considering installing any type of insulation, but not doing any work in your attic, be sure you first have a home energy assessment to confirm that this is the best course of action for your house
