Heat Loss

Heat loss is the transfer of heat from the air inside your home to outside, and the more heat loss you have, the more difficult it is for your heating system to regulate the temperature. This means that not only is your heating and cooling going to be inefficient (which can run up your energy bills), but your furnace or heat pump is going to have to work that much harder to keep things comfortable, making it more susceptible to breakdowns and shortening the lifespan of your system. That’s why it’s so important to prevent heat loss in your home.

Some of the most common causes of heat loss include:

  • Infiltration/air leakage, accounting for approximately 35 percent of heat loss
  • Windows and doors, 18 – 20 percent
  • Floors and below grade space, 15 – 18 percent
  • Walls, 12 – 14 percent
  • Ceilings, 10 percent

Prevent Heat Loss in Your Home

There are a number of ways you can prevent heat loss in your home to reduce the strain on your furnace or heat pump. The most important is buttoning up all the holes and air leaks throughout your home, including around plumbing vents, electrical outlets and other areas in your home where air could be escaping. You can also add weather stripping to windows and doors to prevent heat loss in your home.

If you want to find out more ways to prevent heat loss or if you need heat pump or furnace repair in Ocean, Middlesex or Monmouth County due to an overworked heating system, contact Arctic Air Conditioning today!
