One of the benefits to living in a coastal town like Oceanside, CA is that our summers remain warm but not too warm and our winters are cool but not too cool. However, that can lead homeowners to ignore some basic, common-sense steps that may improve their home’s energy efficiency. Doing so not only means you won’t need to spend as much to heat and cool your house each month, but you can help prevent repairs and may even extend the life of your system to boot. Here are a few products you might want to think about to help on that front.
Energy Recovery Ventilators
Energy recovery ventilators and heat recovery ventilators are designed to swap out the stagnant air in your home with fresh air, all without opening a window and without sacrificing the hot (or cool) air that your HVAC system has worked so hard to generate. This has the effect of retaining the conditioned air far more readily, saving you as much as 40% on monthly heating and cooling costs. The system also helps to prevent illnesses, since it removes stale air and helps to keep germs from circulating in your home.
Thermostats are designed to last for a long time, and if yours hasn’t encountered any problems, it might be decades old. That’s a testament to the device’s reliability, but with technological advancements in the last few years, it means you’ve been missing quite a bit. Smart programming allows new thermostats to adjust time and temperature based on your specific needs, as well as making adjustments for outside temperatures and humidity levels. It can make a huge difference in your bottom line, as well as providing you with numerous modern amenities.
