Are you a new homeowner? If so, congratulations. It’s a big step, and one that brings with it a mix of joys and responsibilities.
Take your HVAC system. There’s the joy of having a reliable method of staying cool in the summer and warm in the winter, and the responsibility of making sure that it functions properly.
That’s why it’s important to educate yourself on your heating and cooling system, allowing you to perform small, preventative maintenance and recognize when more serious repairs are needed.
Are you looking for an energy-efficient alternative to your furnace and air conditioners? Many homeowners are turning to heat pumps.
These devices use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, which makes the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. It’s the same principle the powers your refrigerator.
Your furnace may be firing on all cylinders now, but there may come a day when it won’t be. And on that day, you’ll be faced with an important question: Do I repair, or replace?
It’s not a question that has a simple answer. Consider these factors when deciding to repair or replace an existing furnace.
We’re writing this blog post during the first full week of summer, and the last thing we want to do is distract you from thoughts of fireworks, cookouts, and relaxing by the beach.
Having said that…what will your home heating bill look like this winter? It’s not too early to think about these things. This is the time of year in which utility companies begin offering customers the chance to lock-in prices through payment plans.
If you’re looking for energy efficient heating systems for your home, and choosing between oil and gas furnaces, choose wisely. Both types of heat have their advantages and drawbacks, so it’s important to study your options before you decide.
What is dust?
There’s a commonly quoted statistic that it’s mostly made of dead skin, but that’s a myth. The dust floating around your home contains a small percentage of dead skin, but it’s mostly a mix of pollen, hair, paper and textile fibers, soil minerals, and cosmic dust particles.
Installing a new central air conditioner can be a major investment, but so can constantly having to repair and run an older, inefficient cooling system.
Having an energy efficient heating and cooling system at home is good for the environment, but it’s also good for your household budget.
There are an array of rebates for energy efficient HVAC upgrades to your home. Making these changes can save you money and energy, make your home feel more comfortable, and lead to a sustainable future.
Let’s say you’ve decided to buy a new home. You meet with a real estate agent, you take the tour, you discuss prices.
But you don’t ask any questions. You don’t wonder about local schools, zoning restrictions, or whether the neighbors throw wild parties. You just assume.
If you’re saying, “I wouldn’t do that,” we’d be inclined to agree. Most people don’t make assumptions about important purchases like homes or cars.
Yet when it comes to purchasing air conditioning – a vital component of your home – we see far too many clients making costly assumptions.
Summer is just a few weeks away, but some parts of the country have already suffered through their share of 90 degree days.
It’s around this time of year that people who don’t have central air conditioning start thinking about getting it installed. And if you’re one of those people, you might be wondering about the cost of installing central air conditioning.
That’s only natural. Thinking “What will this cost us?” is part of any major purchase.
