Consider Upgrading Your Thermostat!

July 8th, 2019

Picture this: The year is 2050, and everywhere you look, you see people calling one another on their bricked-sized cellphones. Then, your friend invites you over to his house to watch a movie, and you arrive only to discover that you will be watching the movie on a VCR. Finally, you decide to look up what’s going on, take out your computer, and quickly learn that in order to connect to the internet, you need a dial-up connection!

Sounds absurd, right?

Dial-up, VCRs, and giant cell-phones have all become obsolete for a reason—they’ve been replaced by newer, better technologies. Well, the same principle applies to your thermostat. That’s right: an old, manual or sliding thermostat simply isn’t going to cut it anymore. If you are looking for better efficiency and improved comfort, your best option is to replace that old, outdated thermostat with a brand new one!

How Often Should I Replace My Home’s Insulation?

April 29th, 2019

loft-insulationJust having walls and a roof is not enough to separate the indoor air from the harsh, outdoor air. That’s where insulation comes in.

Insulation is essential for keeping warm air where it needs to be. In summer, that means keeping the warm air outside of your home. In winter, it means keeping the warm air inside the home.

Not only will insulation help you feel more comfortable, but it will also help keep your home cool or warm—meaning less money spent on running the HVAC system.

However, insulation isn’t perfect. It can deteriorate over time and might need to be reapplied every few years. Since insulation stays out of sight and out of mind, many homeowners don’t realize that it might be the reason for their rising heating or cooling bill.

In this post, we’ll go over how often insulation should be replaced and why you should get help finding the right type and amount of insulation.
