Factors That Influence Your Comfort: In Your Home




Your home may not be this unique but the heating and cooling comfort that you experience is directly related to the layout of your home. It is important to be knowledgeable that particular home design features can result in irregular heating and cooling. Sometimes, it can make it difficult to properly condition many areas in your home.


Below is a list of some common home design challenges that could affect your comfort:



a)   Finished basements

b)  Rooms with an abundance of windows

c)   Rooms with ceilings that are high or vaulted

d)  Sun rooms

e)   Multi-leveled homes

f)    Bedrooms over garages


Since heat rises, homes with high ceilings or many levels have difficulty trying to regulate more than one temperature level at the same time. Similarly, rooms with many windows or bonus rooms are difficult to heat or cool because of the insulation and high exposure. Since bonus rooms are located above an empty space, such as a garage, it is an area with literally no insulation. These areas have great difficulty allowing conditioned flow to enter, since they have probably been built with poor quality ducting.
