Updating in 2018? Focus On Where HVAC Is Going
How do you approach your home’s maintenance routine?
Do you plan for the future? Or are you more of a “wait for an emergency” kind of person?
While it’s easy to fall into the latter routine, it’s also the most costly. Fixing a problem when it’s a tiny leak is much easier than dealing with something that becomes a full-blown flood.
Many people upgrade and build new construction so they can create the most energy efficient home possible. But even with new construction, years go by, and there are always things you can do to maintain efficiency and ensure everything is in top condition.
No matter how old your home currently is, there are things you can do to upgrade and make your home work a little better, a little safer, a little more efficient.
For starters, how about upgrading for technology? It’s not difficult to understand that everything in our lives is being influenced by technology. We can now operate all of our home’s appliances from the comfort of our handheld devices. Not only can you adjust the temperature and turn on the lights, but you can view reports that tell you how efficient the process is.
Are you taking advantage of technology?
You can also increase your home’s envelope to help keep the conditioned air where it’s supposed to be, and ensure the air you breathe is as clean and healthy as possible. That’s an important job since we now realize that indoor air quality might not be as clean as we once thought. And since we spend up to 90 percent of our time indoors, it’s one of the most important things we can focus on.
How safe is your indoor air quality?
Furthermore, there are always new ways to move your home into the future. Like incorporating LED lights throughout your home. Or using tankless water heaters for better access to temperature controlled water. Or ensuring your home has a properly sized generator for the unexpected weather events that take our community by storm.
Are you a homeowner? How are you planning on making 2018 the best year it can be? Is upgrading your home’s technology a part of the list? We’d be happy to share what we know.
