It’s no secret that the temperatures in Austin and Pflugerville have been through the roof recently, and the height of summer is still yet to come! If you’re having a difficult time cooling your home down, rest assured that you’re not alone. For those with central air, the problem may have quite a lot to do with leaky ductwork, which can drastically affect indoor comfort and create inconsistent temperatures throughout the home. The answer? Seal those ducts!
For homeowners in the greater Austin area, the coming of summer means doing everything possible to maintain a comfortable indoor environment. Many believe that the answer exists in a new HVAC system, and upgrading your air conditioner may indeed be a great way to keep the hot outside air at bay.
However, installing new air conditioning equipment on its own simply isn’t enough to get the job done properly. Even the best air conditioner will need help to operate at peak capacity, and the solution can be found in insulating before installing your new equipment.
As a homeowner in the greater Austin TX area, you want to invest money in your home wisely. Maybe you’re giddy with excitement at the thought of renovating the kitchen or upgrading the bathroom, but will you see a return on investment?
