- The Science
Home comfort is extremely valuable for Washington, DC area homeowners. At Home Energy Medics, we understand the value of having a comfortable and cozy place to come home to at the end of the day. We offer services geared toward fixing any temperature imbalances in your home.
ROOMS THAT ARE COLD & DRAFTY OR HOT & STUFFY?
Exceptionally cold or drafty rooms can be caused by a variety of factors. Air could be leaking in the upper levels of the home, which allows warm air to escape and unwanted cold air to be drawn in. Your home could be inadequately insulated, the ductwork could be leaking or imbalanced, and windows not adequately sealed.
Hot, stuffy rooms are most commonly caused by a combination of factors, some of them more obvious than others. The obvious ones include home solar heat gain (from unshaded windows) and rising hot air in your home. Factors that are harder to detect include small leaks through the home, poor attic insulation and leaking ducts.
IMPROVING YOUR HOME COMFORT
Though each home requires a unique solution depending on the situation, our comprehensive energy audit will pinpoint exactly which solutions will have the greatest impact at the lowest cost. A home performance energy audit with Home Energy Medics is the best way to determine exactly which fixes will yield the greatest impact at the lowest cost. The combination of a blower door assessment and infrared imaging will pinpoint the drafts at their source, so they can be eliminated effectively, leaving your home cozy and comfortable.

Just looking for additional insulation in your attic or sealing up air leaks? Did you know that making certain changes to your home can result in unforeseen consequences? That is why we always recommend a full home energy audit by Home Energy Medics prior to implementing any efficiency measures. This will provide a full view of your house, it's systems and what can be done to improve ALL areas of your home. Best of all, we refund all or part of the audit cost when you choose to have us implement the solutions.
Home Energy Medics did a wonderful job on our house. We now have much better heating and cooling. The original audit was very revealing of heat leakage points throughout the house. I had no idea that recessed lighting "cans" could leak so much outside air into the house.
