Is one room of your house is colder than the rest of the house?

There could be a few solutions for the problem, some expensive and some cheap. Property holders regularly imagine that they need to live with temperature irregularities in various parts of their homes since they are hesitant to burn through countless dollars to upgrade their heating and insulating systems. However, much of the time, the solutions are so straightforward and economical but many may ignore them… On the off chance that you have to warm just a particular piece of a room, for example, the work area region in a home office or a love seat close to a television, get an energy efficient, 1,500-watt compact electric space radiator. It costs no more $40 yet delivers as much warmth as bigger models. If the problem is bigger there are a few solutions you can look at. Thermostat placed poorly: Is your thermostat placed in a room that receives a lot of sunlight, and the rooms heat up too quickly, it shuts the furnace off too quickly, not giving enough time for it to warm the rest of the house. The problem could be solved by adding a wireless thermostat in the cold room, or a wired system like Nest, which costs around $200 to $300. Heat from your furnace is not reaching the cold spots.: If you feel that the airflow through the vents is very low, there is quite a good chance that the air is leaking through the small holes and leaks in ductwork. On average, in an old house, almost 30% of the air flow is loosed in leaks. Use Aeroseal conduit sealant, a nontoxic polymer spray...
A SOLUTION TO POOR BUILDING VENTILATION…FINALLY.

A SOLUTION TO POOR BUILDING VENTILATION…FINALLY.

We have been hearing a duct sealing a lot lately, as a good way to save energy for the homeowners. It’s no big surprise when you assume that Heating and Cooling costs speak to the larger part of utility costs for homeowners and that an average of 30% of that cost is spilling out the ventilation work as opposed to being conveyed to the rooms that need it. Be that as it may, of late, Aeroseal has been getting expansion consideration for its capacity to take care of an issue that has been engineers and building managers, as far back as there were engineers and building managers. That issue is poor fumes ventilation. We’ve all experienced it. The government building that smells of stale air, the office that seems to attract headaches, the public restroom that smells like a botanical shop on steroids, the loft working with perpetual shape issues and buildup on the windows. These are all symptoms of an ineffective exhaust system – one that is essentially not doing its activity of expelling the old stale air alongside the scents and microbes they regularly contain. Structures with poor ventilation are not just disregarding government and neighbourhood code, but also, they can likewise be subjecting inhabitants to genuine health issues. Be that as it may, the issues of poor ventilation have been notable for quite a while. Little has been done about it for one reason – in most of the cases, there essentially has been no satisfactory answer for the issue. Aeroseal innovation has changed that for good. As a rule, poor ventilation is because of cracked...
Duct sealing – by far the smartest energy saving solution around.

Duct sealing – by far the smartest energy saving solution around.

Remember the time you were taught “bigger is better”, yeah, tell that to smartphone battery makers or laptop manufacturers. It’s not that we were taught wrong, its that the rules and the thinking should and will change over the time. In the same way, the rules regarding the energy conservation for the houses is also changing with the advent of new technologies. If we look at the energy saving tips given by experts 5 to 6 years ago, duct sealing was not mentioned anywhere. It’s not that experts didn’t know that leaks in the ductwork were the single biggest source of home energy waste. It’s just that there really wasn’t an effective solution to the problem. And we resigned to live in a world where almost 30% of energy is lost in duct leaks, if not more. Now that Aeroseal technology has arrived, the answer seems almost obvious. But it took real innovative thinking to literally flip the problem inside out in order to solve the puzzle. While traditional duct sealing methods work by covering leaks from the outside of the ductwork, the new approach would be the first and only solution to seal leaks from inside the ducts. If you could get small enough “sealers” to work inside the ducts, the entire system would be accessible. Walls and insulation would no longer be a concern. Times change and innovations often reset the rules of the game. That is certainly the case when it comes to energy efficiency. With effective duct sealing technology, a reality, duct sealing has quickly risen to the top of the list of things we...
