Adopting the low carbon lifestyle for your home begins with increasing the energy efficiency in your California home. The home performance experts at California Energy Services explain the ins & outs of the low carbon lifestyle with insulation and air sealing in this three part series on reducing your carbon footprint.
Let’s face it: It’s not easy to get through our California summer without an AC on your side. At the same time, however, overuse of even the most efficient air conditioning units leads to high energy bills, especially during the heat of the summer months. One solution is to install a whole-house fan, which are approximately 90% more efficient than a traditional cooling system.
Many homeowners across the Roseville area are struggling to keep their cold conditioned air in, and the hot air out. One of the biggest culprits is old, drafty windows. So how can you effectively stop cold air from leaking out and keep your home’s temperature right where you want it?
With the coming of any new year, Californians inevitably look towards ways in which to improve the way they live their lives. Sometimes, this comes down to eating healthier or exercising more, but what about your home? It’s not difficult to neglect the importance of your home’s energy efficiency, especially when you’re working on other aspects of your life.
As winter descends on homeowners in the Sacramento, El Dorado Hills, and Folsom areas, many homeowners are spending more time inside and running their heating systems on the regular. Now is an especially important time to consider the efficiency of your home. A key factor to consider is the status of your home’s air sealing and insulation.
Winter is almost here, which means it’s time for homeowners in Folsom, El Dorado Hills and Greater Sacramento to take a closer look at their heating systems. One of the best parts about living in California is that heat is not needed throughout much of the year, but this is a double-edged sword.
Homeowners in El Dorado Hills, Citrus Heights and the Greater Sacramento area constantly looking for ways to better their homes and take energy efficiency to the next level. It would be unfair to say, however, that aesthetics don’t also matter. Even the most energy efficient homes need to look good in order for people to feel good about living in them, which is why replacing your windows is one of the best ways to improve home performance and the overall look/feel of your home.
Living in the Foothills means experiencing mostly pleasant weather throughout much of the year. California may not be known for its rough winters, but that doesn’t mean it’s always warm. Ensuring your heating system is prepared for the winter is extremely important, both to ensure that you and your family are comfortable the entire season through, and also to avoid the expenses of an emergency heating repair.
The weather may still be gorgeous, but there’s no getting around the fact that fall is here in the Foothills. Cooler temperatures are on their way whether or not you want to admit it, and once they hit, they’ll be here to stay for a while. While you’ve no doubt spent the summer enjoying the beautiful weather and not thinking about your home heating system, it’s time to put things into perspective and consider focusing on heating maintenance.
