If you and your family have to deal with a broken appliance, water damage, a fire, or another disaster, you’ll have an excellent opportunity to make some improvements. Replacing older devices can often pay for itself after a few years through energy savings. You can also save energy by cleaning your Palm Harbor, Florida, home’s ductwork, adding insulation, and repairing all damage promptly.
Cleaning your ductwork can help you get rid of pollutants like dust, pollen, pet dander, and biological growth that could accumulate and then spread through your ducts to the rest of your home. These contaminants can also clog air filters easily and reduce the airflow in your HVAC system. Without duct cleaning, you’ll have to run your heater or air conditioner more and use more energy to stay comfortable. A professional company like ServiceMaster 24 Hour uses special vacuums and brushes to reach all your ducts and avoid damage.
After a fire, water damage, pests, or biological growth, you’ll probably need to replace some large parts of your home’s insulation. You should choose the most efficient type of insulation available and check your existing materials thoroughly for signs of leaks or other issues. Look for a label with the R-value per inch. This measures a material’s resistance to heat transfer. Insulation with a larger R-value is more effective, so you won’t need to use as much as substances with lower values.
Repairing Damage Promptly
What initially appears as a minor issue like a leaky pipe or a leak in your ductwork can become more severe over time and waste energy. These aren’t items to procrastinate about. Waiting could make it even more difficult, time-consuming, and expensive.
