A healthy house means a better quality of life. High indoor air quality and energy efficiency are signs of a healthy living space. So, what can you do to increase your quality of life in your home?
There are lots of tweaks to increase the air quality and energy efficiency of your home. Installing or upgrading attic insulation, replacing window treatments and coverings, installing a new programmable thermostat, installing ceiling fans, and getting an indoor air quality assessment are all excellent ways to keep your house healthy. One of the most important things to remember to do is service your heating and cooling system and ductwork regularly, since these are two important things that control the temperature and air quality in your home.
Remember that even though one small change might not make a big difference, many small changes add up to keep your house cool in summer, warm in winter, and the air will be fresh all year long. Working out a schedule for small upgrades or repairs allows you to upgrade on a budget, so you can work on the house when you have the time and money.
Small tweaks like those listed above can increase energy efficiency in your house, which will in turn lower you energy bill for years to come. Increasing air quality keeps your family breathing healthy, fresh air and keeps allergies away. Servicing your HVAC system will extend its lifetime, saving you money in the long run.
