Efficiency Performance & Indoor Comfort
What is EPIC? Epic is a philosophy more than a program. It is a standard by which we design and test homes. Epic is the understanding that every component of the home is key to the system. How the walls work to eliminate drafts to reduce energy loss and gains; the integration of the home’s heating and cooling system need to be designed to cover the loads of the home and deliver the conditioned air to the rooms; the calculated amount of fresh air a home needs to maintain a healthy living environment are but a few vital examples of what the EPIC philosophy drives at.
Assessing the safety of a home is an important part (maybe the most important) of a home performance. Backdrafting appliances that may be sending carbon monoxide into the home or unsafe levels of formaldehyde from building materials are all potential safety issues that a ProComfort is trained to address.
Indoor air quality is listed by the EPA as one of the top environmental threats to human health. Its ProComfort’s job is to ensure that your home’s indoor air quality is not a threat to you or your family’s health.
Your home is your refuge. It should be comfortable. Drafty rooms, cold spots, unpleasant humidity or hot rooms in the summer are all issues that ProComfort is trained to remedy.
Imperfections within a building, in addition to causing discomfort raising health concerns, can also have long term repercussions. Moisture problems causing rot in framing, or insufficient insulation causing ice dams, are among the durability concerns that ProComfort will pinpoint, then tackle.
Last but not least, home performance is about ensuring that a home is cost-effective to live in. If a mechanic told you that a few simple improvements could drastically improve the fuel efficiency of your car, that’s something most of us would jump on. That’s what ProComfort can do for your house.
