Heat Loss

Save money and stay comfortable

When it comes to keeping your New Hampshire home comfortable through all four seasons, the weather isn’t the only thing to consider. Your building’s design, maintenance and insulation affect your comfort and spending of energy bills just as much as the cold winter and summer sun.

When your heating and cooling systems have to run longer and work harder to counteract heat gain or heat loss, your energy costs can can become unnecessarily high. But by upgrading your heating and cooling systems, and installing proper insulation you can keep your family warm, and healthy year round.

Because heat rises, naturally the first place to counteract heat loss is in the attic and roof. When your attic has the proper amount of insulation, you can reduce your heating expenses by as much as 30 percent. If your attic is already well-insulated, we do an extensive examination of the existing insulation for inefficiencies and look for any plumbing pipes, electrical fixtures and ductwork that need to be properly sealed as well.

The most common sources of air infiltration include cracks, leaks and gaps around the following features and fixtures:

  • Drafty windows and doors
  • Gas service entrances
  • Outdoor water faucets
  • Electrical outlets
  • Dryer vents
  • Window air conditioning units
  • Cable and phone lines
  • Mail chutes
