Should I Have My Air Ducts Cleaned?
Air almost continually flows through your ducts, bringing warm or cool air to every room in the house. In addition, it circulates the air we breathe to keep it dry and comfortable. However, anyone with hard furniture surfaces in their home, is familiar with that near-constant layer of dust. We’re continually removing dust, but it’s a losing battle. This is especially true when everything is closed up for long periods during times of extreme weather temperatures outside.
Controlling Home Humidity All Year Long
The air we breathe looks empty, but it’s not. It’s full of very small molecules –including molecules of water. When temperatures are warmer, those water molecules move around and are more likely to vaporize, making water vapor in the air. In colder temperatures, molecules are more sluggish, so the water molecules stay whole (or freeze if it’s cold enough).
Programmable thermostat saves money and hassle
Do you struggle to efficiently heat and cool your home because it is larger? Try using a programmable thermostat. It gives you the ability to control the heating and cooling in your home 24 hours a day.
Indoor Air Quality Is Important
Americans spend about 90% of their time indoors, according to the Environmental Protection Agency – and a good deal of that is at home, whether sleeping, getting ready to go to work, or resting after a long day.

Everyone wants to save money whenever they can, but it’s better not to be ‘penny wise and pound foolish’ – meaning, you don’t want to save a little in the short run when it can cost big in the long run.
Different Heat Pumps, Different Technology
A heat pump and a furnace are not the same thing. The furnace uses energy to create heat, a heat pump uses (much less) energy to move heat. Even the name “heat pump” may be slightly misleading, since it is both a heating and cooling system.
Why Are There Hot and Cold Spots in My Home?
Hot and cold spots in your home are common but extremely annoying. Why does your upstairs feel like a sauna while your downstairs feels like an igloo?
Why You Should Get a Programmable Thermostat
Well, it can. With a programmable thermostat, the days of forgetting to set the thermostat and wasting energy (and money!) are gone. You can come home from work to a comfortable temperature, and you can open that electric bill with ease knowing there won’t be any surprises.
