Do you know how best to set the thermostat in your house for both comfort and energy efficiency in winter? It isn’t difficult to learn. You only need to remember two things: 1) keep it set at a steady temperature during the day and a lower temperature at night, 2) aim to make the daytime temperature around 68°F. 

If you follow these basic guidelines, you should enjoy a warm house without needing to touch the thermostat except to make the adjustment between day and night or before leave the house. And if you have a programmable or smart thermostat, you won’t even need to do that much!

Fresh Air in Winter, Without the Cold? There’s a Way…

Monday, February 1st, 2021

Fresh air is good. We all know this because we were told this since we were children. But it’s harder to get fresh air into a house today than it used to be. Modern homes are built “tight” to increase energy efficiency: less heat gained in hot weather, less heat lost in cold weather. But this tightness traps air indoors and keeps out a fresh breeze that can sweep away the stale, sometimes muggy indoor air. 

If you want fresh air in your house, what can you do? Opening the windows is the obvious way—but right now it’s winter. You don’t want to let the chill outdoor temperatures into the house, which will force the heater to work longer to warm the rooms up again. 

So are you simply stuck during the winter with a closed-up house? No, there’s a workaround. Actually, an installation. It’s called an energy recovery ventilator and it can make a huge difference for your indoor air quality and energy savings.

Is a Heat Pump a Good Option for Your Home?

Monday, September 28th, 2020

If you know about heat pumps, you probably know that they work as both heating and cooling systems. That sounds like a terrific advantage for a home: having all the comfort needs for the year contained in a single package rather than using a separate air conditioner and furnace. But if heat pumps were always the best choice, they would be in every home by now.

The truth is that—as with so many other home installations—there is no single right unit for all situations. A heat pump may be the perfect new system to install in your home this fall as you prepare for the change in seasons. Or there may be other options that would work better in terms of capacity and efficiency. We’ll look deeper into the question of “to heat pump or not to heat pump.”

Why Did My AC Trip the Circuit Breaker?

Monday, August 17th, 2020

This is a common summer heat wave problem in Georgia. The air conditioner in your home is whirring and humming to keep the house cool. Suddenly, it stops: no fans, no air from the vents, no cooling, nothing. Not even a sound from it. You go to check the electrical panel (and this is the first place to look when the AC stops working) and discover the circuit breaker labeled for the air conditioner has tripped.

You can reset the breaker to get the air conditioner working once more. But why did this happen in the first place and is it a sign of trouble with the air conditioner that may need to be fixed?
