Which is the Best Replacement Option for Cold Weather Comfort…Windows, Insulation or New HVAC?
It was only the first morning of 50 degree temperature in El Paso this morning and it felt pretty darn cold…didn’t it? Your house may have been even colder if you aren’t properly equipped for the colder weather.
One question we get asked often at Total Air is “what is the more sensible and smart retrofit for my home?” With this question, people are usually considering three major upgrades: windows, insulation, and/or a new heating and cooling system. Unless something is actively failing, it can be difficult to know which to tackle first. However, when it comes to the most control for COMFORT, the choice is clear…new HVAC!
Let’s Talk First About Windows
Insulation in El Paso
Additionally, in retrofit situations, it’s typically exceedingly difficult to insulate the slab and foundation walls, so most insulation upgrades are focused on above grade walls and ceilings where it is already installed. Thus, added insulation for comfort to battle winter time in El Paso is not a major contributor to comfort.
But, that’s not all…an upgraded, highly efficient heating and cooling system removes humidity from the indoor air providing added comfort. The indoor air quality is greatly improved and noise is reduced…providing even more comfort if you value those benefits.
