The Importance of Air Quality
The air you breathe is essential to your family’s good health. That’s why it’s important to prioritize your home’s air quality and internal temperature.
One of the most common homeowner complaints during the winter months is a drafty, cold home interior. If your furnace is on full blast but one or more rooms are drafty or cold, your home’s thermal envelope may be compromised. The term “thermal envelope” refers to a home’s ability to keep air from moving from a home’s interior to its exterior and vice versa. If a home is well-sealed, air infiltration is minimized and the interior temperature is more consistent and comfortable year-round.
Here are a few ways to improve your home’s thermal envelope:
● Update your windows
● Upgrade your insulation
● Replace the exterior doors
Reducing Mold Risk
Mold poses a significant risk to the health of your home’s occupants. Mold and mildew can begin to proliferate when moisture infiltration occurs due to improper sealing in your siding or roof. Over time, mold can remain unseen but lead to serious and often prolonged health problems.
Water and mold can also lead to structural damage. Another common form of damage occurs when water seeps in through your window and causes damage to your walls. Make sure your windows, siding, and roof are sealed and professionally weatherproofed.
