How to improve your airflow efficiency!

Electricity-Savings

Heating and cooling your house or apartment has become a contentious argument of late in Australia. The elderly and the underprivileged are struggling to keep up with the ever-increasing electricity bills. This has meant that staying warm in Winter and cool in Summer has become somewhat of discretionary spend. Leaving many people throughout the country no other option but to switch the power off to help save on costs.

There are some measures to keep your house warm in Winter and cool in Summer by simply closing the doors by placing a door snake and the foot of the door to prevent the draft from coming in. You could also add a high-quality foam/seal around the door frames, but these can become expensive on an initial outlay. Sure having double glazed windows and closing the curtains to prevent the heat from exiting does help. But what if these are not an option.

What if you’re are doing all of the above to little or no effect… Heating one room with little to no warmth coming through, could mean a couple of things. For example the thickness of your current foam batts.

Or it could be something a little more unsuspected such as a duct support system.

Cutting into the duct and in many cases breaking unbeknownst to the homeowner.
