Quit Heating the Neighborhood with These HVAC Tips

Quit Heating the Neighborhood with These HVAC Tips

Are you suspicious you are heating the neighborhood and need some help from HVAC services? Let’s face it, energy bills are high enough in the winter the last thing you need is a problem with your home exterior or ductwork causing your heated indoor air to leave your home and heat the outside area instead. It’s not enough to make sure your furnace is working, especially if you notice your energy bills are higher than usual and you can’t seem to get it warm enough inside your home.

These are signs you may have leaks in your ceiling, walls or ductwork that are allowing the climate-controlled air to escape into the great outdoors. Not good. And definitely not cost effective. If you are footing the energy bill, you and your family should be benefiting from it!

Here are the quick tips you need to make sure you aren’t allowing the air you heat to leave the premises:

  • Take a look in the attic and the roof: these are common areas where heat loss occurs; you need proper insulation to ensure the heat doesn’t escape. The right amount can actually reduce your energy expenses by 30%.
  • Check out the bypasses surrounding ductwork, plumbing pipes and electrical fixtures. These are areas that require a tight seal to prevent heat loss. If you see daylight coming through from outside, this is a big red flag.
  • Assess any conduits in the exterior walls that may be a culprit for lost heat. Cracks, gaps and leaks existing around windows, doors, faucets, and dryer vents may need additional covering and sealing.

customer review

“Dependable Service Plumbing & Air sent a pressure washing company out to clean my entire driveway, when only three small spots were unintentionally put on the corner of my driveway when my neighbor was having a replacement water heater installed. Tommy, the owner of Dependable Service Plumbing & Air, came out to look at my driveway right away, and he had Winston out to clean not only the spots off, but my entire driveway, including my front porch. Winston was very professional, as he explained the difference in concrete between my driveway and my front porch. He also explained the reason for some bad rust stains that were there as a result of metal objects that were mixed into my driveway concrete by my builder. He did an excellent job on everything, and my driveway is now clean enough to have it coated with a light concrete paint (two coats) that I had already contracted out to have done. Caretaker Services Pressure Washing did such a good job of cleaning (about 2,200 lbs. pressure on my driveway & about 400 lbs on my front porch with a household cleaner first) that my coating contractor told me that what is left of my rust stains will all be covered over by the light colored paint. I am very pleased, as he gave me a great education along with a great cleaning job! Also, I will now use Dependable Service Plumbing & Air as my plumber for all my future plumbing needs, as they did a great job for my neighbor!” –- Bill B.
