Tips for Making Your Attic Air Tight
If you want to reduce energy costs, start by looking for air leaks in your attic. Cover gaps where chimneys and furnace flues penetrate your attic floor with flashing or seal with heat resistant caulk. Seal holes or tears in air ducts with mastic or foil tape. Then insulate. Contact us, the Westinghouse HVAC experts, for help with conducting a complete energy audit of your home. With just a few simple suggestions, we can help you increase comfort and save money, too.
Choosing a Thermostat That Fits Your Needs
With so many kinds of programmable thermostats available, how can you begin to choose? Think about your family’s schedule and how often you are away from home for activities like work and school. If your routine changes every day, consider a 7-day model with the flexibility to set different programs each day. If your schedule stays the same during the week, but differs on the weekend, a 5 + 2 model could be the right option for you. For those who keep one schedule Monday through Friday, another on Saturdays and a third on Sundays, 5 + 1 + 1 models work best. Call us, the Westinghouse HVAC experts, for advice on selecting and installing the right programmable thermostat for your lifestyle. You could be saving as much as $180 a year!
What you Need to Know About Zoning
How do zoning systems save energy? They allow you to manage how warm or cool each room of your home is by working with your central heating and air system to provide individualized control. The system is designed to automatically open and close dampers in your home's ductwork, letting in just the right amount of air based on thermostat settings for each zone. Everyone stays comfortable in every room, and you'll avoid wasting energy. As Westinghouse heating and air experts, we can recommend a zoning system or other equipment that can cut your energy bills and make your home more comfortable. Call us for a consultation today.
