Windows are an important part of your home envelope. Have you ever wondered what makes some windows more energy efficient than others? A sturdy frame, low-e glass and an energy star rating are some of the necessary first steps. If your windows are not energy efficient, you could be wasting money on heating and cooling costs.
Have you ever experienced what it’s like to run your cooling system at full capacity on the hottest day of the year and still have a hard time getting temperatures to cool down? If so, you’re not alone, and there’s a good chance that the problem can be attributed to the overall cleanliness of your AC. A dirty AC will have a hard time operating properly, no matter how new the unit is.
Many people don’t realize, though, that allowing an AC to go unmaintained for a long period of time can lead to a number of different health and safety issues. Ductwork that isn’t properly maintained, for example, can draw in carbon monoxide, viruses, bacteria and allergens, all of which can range from being minor health issues to potentially deadly. Plus, loose connections and faulty wiring can result in electrical issues, putting your home at risk for fire.
