What Your Heating and Cooling Contractor Might Be Missing

There are a lot of great contractors out there, many of whom are highly adept at what they do. Homeowners understandably want to work with contractors who know the ins and outs of the mechanicals that make up the home heating systems they sell, but it’s important to realize that this is only a small portion of the bigger picture. A great deal of today’s contractors operate in a silo, which means they’re only taking into consideration a fraction of what makes for an efficient home.

Mechanicals are part of a larger system — they do not operate in isolation. You could install the best heating system in the world, but if the home is not properly insulated, its functionality will be highly limited. Fortunately, a different approach to outfitting a home to be as energy-efficient as possible does exist, and it requires a combination of expert knowledge and thorough diagnostics.

The “Whole-home” Approach

When a home is viewed as a complex system in which a number of different variables can affect each other at any given time, the approach taken to promoting energy-efficiency is known as a “whole-home” approach. The benefits of working with a contractor who takes a “whole-home” approach are many, including the following —

  • Savings — Everyone wants to save money on their monthly utility bill. In order to do so, you need to ensure that your home is as energy-efficient as possible. A “whole-home” approach can be a great deal of help in this regard.

  • Comfort — Comfort is everything, especially when you’re spending a great deal of time in your home. Comfort levels often rely on having a heating system that works efficiently and without issue, which comes along with taking a “whole-home” approach.

  • Health — When a heating system is dirty or doesn’t work properly, the health of you and your family can be compromised. Maintaining a healthy home doesn’t have to be impossible, especially if you work with a contractor who takes a “whole-home” approach to what they do.
