Quality Never Goes Out of Style

Winter snow and summer storms can be tough on the exterior of your home. Some repairs or upgrades could have your home looking better than new. Take, for instance, the asphalt shingles on your roof; it’s only been 15 years since they were applied and they have a 25-year guarantee, but they’re beginning to look a bit shabby. Asphalt shingles of a decade ago are not equal to the ones today. Technology has advanced their make-up to a high level of durability and beauty not seen before. As a different option, metal roofing has begun to surge in the roofing industry and you may want to consider a metal roof for your existing home or a new construction. 

Don’t Settle for Less Than the Best

Quality shouldn’t be spared in materials or workmanship. When you hire a construction company to work on your home, you want someone you can trust and puts their customers first. These companies don’t skimp on quality and treat each job they do as if it were on their own house. Search out a company that answers all your questions, has an experienced team of professionals and has a loyal customer base because customers that keep coming back means the company has a solid reputation for customer satisfaction. You can find a trustworthy roofer in Calgary that meets that criteria, such as Tony William Roofing & Exteriors.

Save! Save The Energy

Oh no, not my energy since I have to use it every day from fetching to sending my kids to school and to their extra-curricular activities. But the electrical usage at home, oh well I guess it was not a good idea at all to buy a water dispenser because it eats a lot of energy, I mean I guess our bill was doubled or even tripled way up because of this. So what I am doing now is I am turning off the water dispenser at night and when there is no one at home. And so far I am doing a good job, I mean I don’t have evidence yet but I know our electric bill will be decreased this month, we also don’t Aircon at all besides it is raining every night so we don’t have any excuse at all to use it. Faith somehow became used to sleep without the Aircon turned on anymore.

Save Money this Summer: Tips to Help You Reduce A/C Use

When summer comes around you don’t have much choice but to run the air conditioner for at least part of the day. However, running the air more than you really need to can leave you with astronomical electricity bills. Use these tips to help you reduce A/C use in your Pittsburgh home this summer. 

1. Hire a qualified HVAC contractor that has been working on air conditioning Pittsburg homes for years. You want a reputable company with a history of quality service to make sure your HVAC system is working properly at the beginning of each summer. If you don’t your system could be working a lot harder and costing you more money. 

2. Install a programmable thermostat and set it to 80 to 82-degrees when you’re away from home at work. Set the temperature to come back down to a more comfortable 72 or 74 about 30 minutes before you arrive home in the evening. You’ll save a considerable amount of money each month. 

3. Open windows in the evening to let cool air in. Window units that pull air from outside can also help cool your home. Just make sure you shut the windows before it gets hot in the middle part of the morning.

4. Change your A/C filter regularly. Most air conditioner air filters need to be changed about once every 30 days. Look for a high-efficiency air filter that works with your HVAC unit for the best possible results. A dirty air filter could damage your A/C and force it to work much harder to cool your home.
