Ec02-458 Heating And Cooling Systems: Saving Energy And Keeping Safe (Home*A*Syst Fact Sheet 1), Shirley Niemeyer, Sharon Skipton

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Your house should be a safe, comfortable place that is affordable and durable. How a home is constructed, insulated, and heated and cooled directly affects how well it meets these objectives. A house is affordable only when costs for heating and cooling are reasonable. Energy bills are lowest if a home is tightly air-sealed and properly insulated and if all mechanical systems are operating efficiently. Before extensively air-sealing your home, it is critical to ensure that doing so will not cause health or moisture problems by examining adequate air intake. Above, all else, your home must be a healthy place ...
