Getting the perfect indoor temperature can seem almost impossible, especially if your home was built using different materials. In order for your property to maintain comfortability, there needs to be a proper temperature control system in place. At TriState Home Services, we have the equipment, methods and products you need to keep your home the perfect temperature with our temperature zoning installations.
What Is Temperature Zoning?
Temperature zoning offers many advantages, but the one that stands out the most is that it allows you to manipulate the temperature in different zones of your property with a single thermostat. You no longer need to purchase multiple cooling and heating systems to keep your indoor temperatures comfortable. If you like to keep your bedroom cool, but you prefer that your bathroom remain warm, temperature zoning is exactly what you are looking for. Other benefits include the following:
- Integrates with your current systems
- Gives you the ability to control comfortability in your home
- Saves money on electricity costs
- Works with both heating and cooling
When To Get Temperature Zoning
There are certain properties that we recommend temperature zoning for specifically because of their complex nature. Some of these properties include:
- Atriums and solariums
- Rooms connected to and over the garage
- Rooms with expansive glass areas
- Large open areas
- Two story and multi-level homes
- Complex floor plans
- Finished basements and attics
These are just a few instances for which we recommend installing temperature zoning systems. There are also other situations that will work very well with temperature zoning systems. To find out if temperature zoning is a good fit for your property, contact us today at (301) 969-9353.
Air Flow Testing
Rarely do we realize just how much we rely on our HVAC systems to keep our indoor atmosphere cool and comfortable. These systems are necessary for maintaining comfortable temperatures in homes and businesses. Manufacturers are constantly developing new models that are more innovative and better quality than the last. These new high-tech HVAC systems are compelling energy auditors to provide a comprehensive overview to clients, which is exactly why we now offer air flow testing, otherwise known as static pressure testing.
You may not have heard of air flow testing yet, as it is still fairly new. However, it has proven to be a reliable method for determining the condition of existing HVAC systems and ductwork, and to make sure they are performing their best.
When it comes to energy consumption, there are many elements that could be increasing your energy consumption and in turn, costing you more money than necessary. For example, if your HVAC installation or ductwork are damaged, it could explain why your energy consumption is so high. Other variables like appliance malfunctions and air leaks could also be preventing your systems from performing properly and could end up costing you more money. By performing air flow testing, our technicians can locate and correct any issues before they become problematic.
Air Flow Testing Process
When performing air flow testing, our skilled technicians will complete the following steps:
- Determine which direction to drill the test holes
- Drill the equipment and/or duct system
- Complete air flow readings
- Compare the results to manufacturer’s pressure ratings
- Locate the component that has the highest pressure drop
Contact TriState Home Services to schedule professional air flow testing in your home. We also offer comprehensive home energy evaluations to learn more about your property and provide affordable solutions to help lower energy consumption and increase your energy savings.
Insulation Assessment Services
A simple method for lowering energy consumption in your home is by reinforcing your HVAC with insulation. There are many different insulation options and finding one that meets your needs is easy. Maintaining your insulation is a little more difficult; but it’s just as important! When your home’s insulation doesn’t work properly, your indoor temperatures, energy consumption, and the costs associated with it, will reflect that.
If you’re not sure if your insulation is performing optimally, it’s best to have it checked by the experts. TriState Home Services can quickly locate any problem areas and provide an affordable solution for you.
Benefits Of Insulation
There are many benefits associated with installing insulation in your property. Some of the most common benefits are:
- Promotes a safe and healthy environment
- Reduces energy consumption
- Increases property resale value
- Added strength and protection for your home
If you’re ready to update, repair or install new insulation in your home, TriState Home Services can help. We can even check your current insulation to make sure there are no issues setting you back.
