attic-insulation-installWe tend to think of insulation in our homes as a winter feature, working to keep heat in our homes and prevent our furnaces from having to work as hard as they should. But insulation in your home can be far more than a winter feature, and because we have mild winters here in Texas, a number of homes possess far less insulation than they might.

Get Your Older Thermostat Replaced

Monday, February 13th, 2017

Thermostats_Temperature_iStock_000044457922_Full-meEveryone wants their heating system and air conditioning system to function more effectively, and to do their jobs without costing more than they should. But replacing an entire system is expensive, and as long as it continues to run reliably, that’s not usually a step that homeowners wish to take. However, HVAC systems consist of more than just the heaters or air conditioners themselves, and while buying a whole new system is expensive, making sensible upgrades here and there isn’t.

Consider, for example, your thermostat, which acts as your control panel for the entire system. Most thermostats can do their jobs for many years without complaint, and if you’ve had yours for a long time, congratulations.

But there have been some exciting advances made in the past few years, and if you have an older thermostat, you might want to think about replacing it even if it continues to work effectively.

Signs You Have a Leaky Duct System

Monday, December 19th, 2016

Most homes in the Georgetown, TX area use centralized furnaces and air conditioners, which rely on a series of ducts to carry the conditioned air through the home. They’re normally located in crawlspaces or other hidden locations, which helps keep them safe from damage.

Even so, leaks and even breaches can occasionally spring up, especially in older systems which have been in use for a while.

But how can you spot the leaks if they’re located in hidden spots? There are a few telltale signs that can help you out.
