Every one of us bought our home in late November.
While it was a nicely appointed home with all the latest amenities, it was also an older home.
The structure was in wonderful shape as the two of us made sure to get that professionally confirmed. In our area, the Winter gets here pretty early. So by the time the two of us closed plus had the keys to the house, the early signs of Winter were upon us. I didn’t have to worry about the HVAC heating proposal which was nice. The previous owner had upgraded both the heating plus the cooling units for the house. So, it was with confidence that I was going into that first Winter in our new place. From the start, I kept noticing that the two of us were having to push the HVAC setting higher plus higher in order to stay warm. This was concerning since the two of us had a new heating system. I wondered if they chop corners on the heating system plus it wasn’t powerful enough to heat the volume of our home. So, I had the HVCA people come out plus supply the thing a complete inspection. I was surprised but relieved to learn that the heating system was not the problem. The HVAC tech assured me that the two of us had a state of the art heating system with more than enough power to heat our home. The problem was the house. The HVAC tech advised that I labor to absolutely seal up the home tighter. That meant more insulation, new weather stripping plus making sure the window casings were insulated. He also advocated I use a temp gun to find spots on the exterior that were leaking heated air.
