-TAKE ADVANTAGE OF TIME: With summer months, when the morning or afternoon sun starts to heat up your house, adjust your cooling schedule accordingly.

-USE HIGH TECH TOOLS: Newer models allow you to adjust your homes temperature with the use of WiFi from laptops, tablets or smartphones

-LESS TIME ADJUSTING: You can set a schedule one time per season, no more time wasted running to and from the thermostat when you leave and return to your house.

Did you Remember to Change your Ceiling Fan Direction?

In warm weather, ceiling fans should turn counter-clockwise. This creates a downdraft effect that feels like a cooling breeze - literally a wind chill. The faster your fan is turning, the cooler you’ll feel.

It makes sense to use your ceiling fans in the winter as well, but the blades should be spinning clockwise whenever your rooms need more heat. In this mode, ceiling fans create an updraft effect that pulls the warmer air near the ceiling downwards and distributes it around the room. It’s best to use the slowest fan speed during the winter, as this will save energy while effectively circulating warm air.

3 Warning Signs You Need to Replace Your Furnace

blakeman plumbing
The days are getting shorter, leaves are changing colors, and the cold is setting in. It’s that time to make sure your furnace can get you through the winter. Here is a couple warning signs indicating you may need to replace your furnace:
  • Your equipment repair costs and energy bills are steadily increasing
    Older furnaces work harder to provide the levels of heating they did when they were new. This means higher energy bills and more frequent repairs. A slight increase in both is OK for an older furnace but once you begin seeing significant bill increases and your furnace repairman knows you by name, it may be time to look into getting a new furnace.
  • Your furnace is more than 15 years old
    Furnaces are like cars; the older they are, the more maintenance they need, usually incurring the most breakdowns in the last two years of their lives. If your furnace is roughly 15 to 20 years or older and you have a repair costing more than 15% of a new furnace, you should go ahead and replace it to save you money in the long run.
    Your furnace is noisy
    Furnaces tend to make some noise when they turn on and off, but if those noises start to get progressively louder, it may be time to replace your unit. These sounds may come in the form of popping, banging, humming, or screeching. This could be a telltale sign that you may need to replace a furnace or some parts within the furnace.
