As long as your home is well-insulated, your interior should be nice and toasty all winter, right?

Aside from better indoor comfort, what are the other benefits you can enjoy if airflow inside your home is optimized? For one thing, since warm and cool air are distributed evenly throughout your home, your HVAC system won’t have to work as hard to maintain comfortable indoor temperatures, lowering your electricity bill and reducing the wear and tear on your HVAC system’s internal components.
Plus, air balancing can also contribute to better indoor air quality. With air passing through the filters more freely, there’s a lower risk of dust particles accumulating in the air ducts. Keep in mind that pinpointing airflow imbalances requires precise calibrations and complex equipment, so you should only hire a qualified air conditioner service contractor to do it.
