You trudge through the biting wind to your front door, dreaming of the warmth that awaits you inside. After a few minutes in your home, you’re still not wrapped in the comforting blanket of warmth that you expected. Your home should be a place where you can always escape the winter weather of Columbia, Maryland. To keep your home comfortable — especially during the winter — you’ll want to avoid certain heating- and ventilation-related issues. Here are three such issues that can make your home less comfortable.


In the summer, you likely endured too much humidity when you stepped outside. In the winter and fall, however, humidity drops and the air becomes dry. This dryness may not stick out to you as quickly as heavy summer humidity did, but it does affect your comfort. Dry air causes dry skin and can result in annoying static electricity shocks. You can beat low humidity with a whole-home humidifier.

Poor HVAC Efficiency

During the fall’s moderate weather, your HVAC system probably didn’t have to work very hard, but cold weather can put extra strain on your system. If your system is not properly maintained, it will be unable to adequately maintain comfort in your home. If you haven’t already, call your local HVAC contractor and ask for a seasonal maintenance visit. An efficient system will be able to handle everything from everyday comfort to a sudden drop in temperature.

Poor Indoor Air Quality

Cold and flu season can be difficult enough without you and your family getting sick as a result of poor indoor air quality. Unfortunately, if the air in your home isn’t healthy, you’ll be experiencing headaches, stuffy noses, sore throats, and fevers. No one can be comfortable while they’re ill. Defeat this enemy to comfort by regularly changing HVAC air filters and cleaning often.

Fighting off the enemies of comfort is simple if you know what to look for. If you’re dealing with any of these HVAC issues, Griffith Energy Services can help bring comfort back to your home. Call us today at 888-474-3391.
