Is your existing home uncomfortable during hot or cold weather?
If you are uncomfortable at times when your home should be the most comfortable, then you need to get some diagnostics done to evaluate potential causes. Just having an HVAC contractor install a bigger unit will not address the underlying issues. Even new homes have leaky ducts. An older home most assuredly will have duct leakage. You could potentially lose 30% of your condition air (air that you’re paying for) to the outside. Leaks can also offset the pressure balances in your home. Sucking in pollutants and distributing throughout your home.
Diagnosing the performance of your home is the first step in creating a healthier, comfortable, energy efficient home. When your home is uncomfortable, a comprehensive diagnostic audit is money well spent. The quick fix that a contractor may tell you that you need is definitely not the solution.
