Most water heaters have a lifespan of 10-12 years. If your system isn’t delivering a steady supply of hot water, you could really benefit from an upgrade! If your existing water heater still has a few years left, you can adjust it to operate more efficiently. Lower the temperature to 120 degrees, this is sufficient to provide hot water for showers and other household needs.
Adding or upgrading your humidifier can completely change the feel of your home. With the right humidifier, you can experience better comfort, more warmth, and improved respiratory health.
Mini-Split Heat Pump
Ductless mini-splits aren’t just for air conditioning! Consider adding a ductless mini-split heat pump to your home to supplement your central heating system. Also known as electric heat pumps, these super-efficient models can be used to warm up on chilly nights between seasons, to offset your heating fuel bills, or to heat hard-to-reach areas of your house, like an addition.
Programmable thermostats are one of the easiest and best ways to control the heat in your home. According to Energy.gov, turning down the temperature 10 degrees every night will cut up to 10% off your energy bill. If you program your thermostat to do this every day, you’ll see the savings.
According to the EPA, a 1/8” gap under a door lets in just as much air as a 2.4” wide hole in the wall. Since the Department of Energy estimates that reducing air leaks can save you up to 10% on your heating bills, upgrading your insulation could make a bigger difference than you think.
