Don’t Let Your Heat Escape!

Heat, air conditioning, comfort… They’re all the same thing. When the temperatures are unliveable or uncomfortable outside, you rely on your heating or air conditioning system to keep your indoor environment safe and comfy. This is why it’s so important that you keep your heat inside during the winter and spring, and keep the outdoor heat outside during the summer.

Here at Ambient Air Solutions, we’re very concerned with how homes in our area are keeping comfortable temperatures indoors. Sometimes we see overworked heat pumps or other types of heating in Bozeman, MT that just can’t create enough heat for the whole house. If it’s constantly escaping through air ducts, drafty doors and windows, and just isn’t well maintained, that will never change.

So, let’s change it together. We will be brainstorming a few ways to stop heat from escaping your home when you need it the most.

Your Walls, Your Ducts, and Your System

We’re going to focus on three main ways that air can escape from your home. While they might not be specifically tailored to your home, you should get a clearer picture as to how your heating system’s heat is being dispersed and where it could be wasted. Don’t forget, our team can help with all of your heating needs. Just give us a call.

Drafty Doors, Windows, and Walls

Have you ever been to an old home where the owner put plastic wrap on the windows? Or perhaps you’ve seen those nifty door stoppers that plug up the gap between an old door and the floor? These are all ways for a homeowner to combat leaking heat that might escape through drafty windows, walls, doors, and other areas of your home.

It’s a good idea to locate some problematic areas of your house and then report back to us. Where does it always feel cold no matter what temperature you set on the thermostat? Does your basement always feel cold no matter what? We promise that our attention to detail can help curb wasted heat and get to the bottom of the problem.

Air Ducts

Did you know that our team provides air duct modifications? This is because we’ve seen many homeowners struggle with their air ducts constantly leaking air. If they’re left unattended, air ducts can leak up to 30% of your heated air during the winter, and conditioned air during the summer. This is a huge problem and will add up over time. Call our team so we can inspect your air ducts and figure out what needs to be done.

Your Heating System

So you’ve checked your drafty doors and windows and your air ducts, and you still can’t figure out why your home feels cold and why heat just isn’t permeating through it. Well, the answer could be right under your nose.

A heating system might sound or seem like it’s working correctly, but if it’s not providing enough heat to your home, then it’s just not. This could be due to a repair need, lack of maintenance, or the need to completely replace your failing system. Either way, our team can help.
