Of course, keeping your interior doors cracked allows airflow, but we didn’t realize it also helps balance temperatures, reduces energy cost, improves air quality, and can improve the life of your HVAC by up to 50%.
No, seriously, closing interior doors have a serious impact on your expensive HVAC system. It creates a vacuum that is hard on the motor and also causes it to pull in air from the outside, attic, and crawl spaces leading to unconditioned air and increased dust, mold, and mildew in your home.
Ever wonder why your closed spare bedroom is hot and smells like a cardboard box? Well, now you do. We learned this from different customers who are homeowners and contractors that build homes, install and repair HVAC, and do electrical work. We’re not joking, do a web search on closing interior doors and HVAC. We did, and they’re right! ~ Thanks, Nathan, Dyllon, James, & Richie!
