Home Performance Testing: Uncover Hidden Opportunities

Understanding your home’s energy efficiency is the first step towards creating a comfortable living space. A professional home energy assessment provides a comprehensive analysis of the state of your home. Even in newer homes, there are opportunities to save energy, and our technology, including thermal inspection, ensures you stay ahead of bigger issues.

Air Infiltration: Guarding Against Energy Waste

Air infiltration, or the unintended entry of outside air, can lead to drafty homes and increased energy bills. It occurs through windows, doors, and poorly insulated walls. The solution? Invest in proper insulation to create a barrier against air leakage and other pollutants.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, installing spray foam to reduce air leaks in walls and roofs can potentially result in 15 percent of savings on heating and cooling expenses for the average homeowner. Its expansive nature allows it to tightly seal all nooks and crannies effectively, and is widely regarded as the best type of insulation to protect your home from air infiltration!

Effects of Humidity on the Home: Finding the Perfect Balance

Maintaining indoor humidity between 40-60% is key to a comfortable and healthy living space. High humidity in the summertime can create discomfort, while low humidity during winter can lead to dryness. Humidity also plays a crucial role in sleep quality, impacting respiratory system irritation and sleep stages. 

Joseph G. Allen, director of the Healthy Buildings program at Harvard University, emphasizes the importance of maintaining humidity between 40 to 60% as a strategy against Covid-19. Capital City Comfort Solutions is here to guide you on how a humidifier can help maintain comfortable humidity levels, reducing the chance of thermal discomfort, improving sleep quality, and more.

Why Air Purifiers Are Needed – Volatile Organic Compounds

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are compounds with high vapor pressure and low water solubility, which is a big, fancy way of saying you should avoid breathing them in. Many VOCs are human-made chemicals used in various products, like paints, wood preservatives, aerosol sprays, cleansers, disinfectants, and air fresheners. These compounds can have short- and long-term adverse health effects, making it crucial to address them. Capital City Comfort Solutions recommends investing in air purifiers to effectively tackle VOCs, ensuring your home remains a safe haven for your family.
