When it comes to complaints about home energy efficiency, we hear all kinds of different things from homeowners in the Foothills. Some concerns seem to pop up time and time again, however, and one of the most common issues we hear about is uneven heating and cooling throughout the home.

There are countless homeowners in the El Dorado Hills, Sacramento, Folsom, Granite Bay areas, and beyond that rely on ductwork to keep them comfortable throughout the year—especially during the hot summer months.

There’s never a bad time to get a home energy audit, but mid-summer is a great time to schedule one.

Summer is in full swing here in the Foothills. For many, this means taking the time to ensure that their home is well-equipped to deal with the heat of the summer.

If you’re like most people in Folsom and El Dorado Hills, spring cleaning has been on your mind ever since the beautiful weather has returned.
