Hot Room, Cold Room – Achieving Even Air Temperature Throughout Your Home

Posted on: November 14, 2013

In a typical house it’s not unusual to have temperature differences of several degrees from room to room. Attics, basements and additions usuanlly have the greatest air temperature differences. When one room is uncomfortably hot or cold there are several factors to consider.

Inadequate Insulation

In a cold climate like Illinois, proper insulation is essential. The recommended R-value for attics is 43, and an R-value of 21 for walls

Air Leaks

Proper weather sealing around windows and doors will eliminate drafts and energy loss.

Inadequate Air Delivery System

One of the most common problems we see in HVAC systems that are not heating or cooling well are air ducts that are not properly sized to deliver air throughout the home. To check for potential problems ABC can perform an air delivery analysis to determine if air is reaching all areas of your home.

Air Duct Leaks

Sealing the gaps and joints in your air ducts will allow your furnace and air conditioner to work more efficiently and ensure all the air reaches all areas of your home

“Your fast, professional handling of the issue was remarkable in today’s business environment. No hassle and solid craftsmanship along with a knowledgeable technician, forces me to call you the next time I require plumbing assistance and makes ABC an easy referral to friends and neighbors. Thank you for your integrity.”
