If you have energy efficiency concerns at your home or business, there is a list of several items that you may need to look at to determine the cause of the problem. While some things on the list are obvious, like poorly insulated windows, other items aren’t as obvious because they are hidden in the structure of your property. One such item is the HVAC system, which serves a critical purpose in terms of comfort and energy efficiency, but it can also be a leading factor in poor performance.

An HVAC system that isn’t running efficiently may give you mixed signals about its performance. For example, it may continue to run, but it just doesn’t quite make your living and working spaces comfortable. Alternatively, you may not notice any change in the way you feel inside a space because your body is accustomed to the change in energy efficiency, but your utility bills speak a different language and can affect your budget in the short and long term.

If you’ve gone through the other energy efficiency checklist items and haven’t yet had an energy efficiency contractor check your HVAC system, you may find incredible benefit to having this service performed. Not only can an energy efficiency contractor determine the current state of your HVAC system, but they may also provide a whole-property assessment to determine which factors are most crucial to better performance for your home or business. Then you can make informed decisions about upgrades and improvements based on your specific property’s needs.
