Preparing Your Home Before Vacation

Ready for a vacation?

Your home should be too! Careful planning can not only help protect your home and your belongings while you travel, but also provide your family with some energy savings to spend on souvenirs! Follow these five simple tips to prepare your home for your absence.

Whether it’s a weekend road-trip or stay at the lake house, remember to follow some of these energy-saving tips to avoid unnecessary expenses while you’re away.

1. Turn off the lights.

If you decide to keep any of your lights on as a security measure, invest in an automatic timer. It can be programmed to turn on your lights during late evening and early morning hours while preventing wasted energy during the day.

2. Turn down your air conditioner.

While it’s important to keep the air circulating in your home while you’re gone, you can drastically cut down on energy usage by turning your thermostat up to 85 degrees. If you have a programmable thermostat, simply use the “vacation” feature to maintain safe and efficient indoor temperatures while you’re gone.

3. Unplug appliances and electronics.

Even when they’re turned off, anything that’s plugged into the wall can continue to consume energy. By unplugging your devices or using a smart power strip, you’ll avoid wasting standby power. Don’t forget to unplug your washer and dryer, too.

4. Adjust your water heater(s).

Turn your water heater down to “low” or to “vacation” mode. If your pool also uses a heater, consider purchasing a pool cover that will help minimize heat loss so that you can avoid the cost to reheat it.

5. Refrigerator:

If you’ll only be gone a few days, turn your refrigerator’s thermostat up a few degrees. If you’ll be gone more than two weeks, clean and empty the refrigerator, prop the door open, and unplug the unit.

Whether it’s a weekend road-trip or stay at the lake house, remember to follow some of these energy-saving tips to avoid unnecessary expenses while you’re away.

Is a More Expensive HVAC Filter Better?

HVAC Air Purifiers

Whole-house air purifiers are becoming an increasingly popular component of the heating and cooling systems in many homes. Wondering why? Check out the benefits below!

Fewer allergy symptoms.

Unlike standard air filters, whole-house air purifiers can catch potential allergens down to .3 microns in size, removing up to 99.97 percent of particles from the filtered air.

Compact size.

Whole-house air purifiers are conveniently installed within the HVAC air handler system, eliminating the unsightly portable units in different rooms throughout the house.

Cost-effectiveness.

Whole-house air purifiers save you the expense of having to purchase both air purifier filters and HVAC filters.

Less Noise.

Because whole-house air purifiers eliminate the noise associated with some portable units, they are able to create a more comfortable and healthier indoor environment with little noise.

Low Maintenance.

While standard HVAC filters must be changed at least every 90 days, whole-house air purifiers last 3 to 5 years with little to no maintenance. And these units can be incorporated into your existing HVAC system.

Keeping your eyes and ears open for warning signs can prevent that scenario where the system quits in the middle of night or for businesses, during work hours on the coldest day of the year,” said Michael Flag, president of AirPro Inc., a leading HVAC serving company in New York. “Simple maintenance during the year will prevent this problem and keep your home or business warm during the cold winter weather
