Monday, August 3rd, 2015

The vast majority of homeowners are unaware of their ducts most of the time. This is no great surprise, as the ducts are sort of designed to be inconspicuous.

If you don’t have your ductwork properly inspected and cleaned at least once a year, you could run into some pretty nasty consequences. Read on to find out more about duct cleaning, and why it is necessary.

7 Benefits of a Programmable Thermostat

One of the biggest causes of poor energy efficiency in an HVAC system is leaving the heating or air conditioning on when no one is in the house. If you find that you are constantly leaving the heating or cooling on in your house, chances are you could benefit from changing to a programmable thermostat. Here is a list of 7 ways a programmable thermostat can help your HVAC system.

  • You can schedule the heating or cooling to only turn on while you are gone. This makes a huge difference in your utility bills at the end of the month.

 

  • Programmable thermostats do not contain toxic chemicals such as mercury. Most outdated thermostats use mercury inside the unit. It’s important to keep this in mind when disposing of it.

 

  • You won’t ever forget to turn off you heating or cooling system.

 

  • You don’t have to enter a cold home after a long day. The thermostat can be used to heat the room just before your arrival.

 

  • You can also adjust your thermostat to turn on just before you wake up in the morning.

 

  • You can set the temperatures to be different on different days of the week.

 

  • A programmable thermostat is a year round advantage. You can use all the same features to control heating AND cooling using only one unit.

The Benefit of Switching to a Ductless Heating and Cooling System Increased comfort:

Ductless heating and cooling systems are extremely efficient at distributing heat evenly throughout your living space. One indoor unit is enough to regulate the temperatures in a large space. Ductless systems are suitable for any open floor plan and are easy to control. With a duct system the air has more distance to travel before entering the room it will be heating or cooling. Duct systems can waste an average of 40% of your heating and cooling energy.

Monthly savings:

Ductless systems can replace the primary heat source in all electrically heated homes. Ductless systems heat homes for a fraction of the cost of a baseboard, electric furnaces, or wall and ceiling heaters.

Heating and cooling all in one unit:

This allows you to control your comfort no matter what season it is. With a ductless system, the heating and cooling is all done from one unit making it a great choice for controlling the temperature of your home all year round. No more external air conditioners and the maintenance that comes with them.

Easy, low-cost installation:

Ductless systems do not require costly and complicated ductwork. This allows you to set aside your worries of duct cleaning and expensive maintenance. A ductless installation can usually be completed within a couple of days.

Breathe cleaner, healthier air:

With a ductless system you can say goodbye to dirt, dust, germs, mildew, and odor causing gases. A ductless system will continuously be circulating fresh air into your living space, making it a prime choice for people who suffer from allergies.

Incentive opportunities:

Many local utility companies such as Puget Sound Energy offer cash incentives up to $1,500 for changing to a ductless system. This can make it a whole lot easier on your pockets when making the transition.
