Cool Your Home Efficiently with Whole House Fans

Saturday, March 25th, 2017

Whole house fans are a great way to cool your house down this summer. They pull fresh cool air in from outside the house and push it through the attic and then back outside, cooling the attic at the same time.

Whole house fans can save you money on your electric bills by lowering your air conditioning usage. This Tamerack HV 1600 pictured here was installed in Lancaster and it has powerful energy efficient fan motors and comes with a two speed remote control.

Get Prepared for Winter with a Portable Generator

Sunday, January 1st, 2017

This Generac 8000 watt portable generator was installed in West Chester, PA

We just had our first ice storm of the season, and fortunately it wasn’t as bad as ice storms from the past. However, don’t let old man winter sneak up on you next time. Get prepared with a portable generator!

For most homes we recommend the Generac 8000 watt portable generator. This unit has what it takes to keep the important things working during a power outage, and it also won’t break the bank. Your refrigerators, sump pump, well pump, heater and lights can be wired into a transfer panel to make it easy.

Once it’s set up, there will be no need to run a bunch of dangerous extension cords throughout the house. Just roll out the generator and plug in one cord, then hit the transfer panel switches.

The hot summer sun beating down on your roof can cause your attic to reach temperatures up to 130 degrees. These high temperatures can transfer down into the living space of your home causing your A/C to run more than it should.

Solar attic ventilator fans make great sense here; powered by the sun, they can move hot air out of the attic and pull in cooler air from outside. Keeping the air flowing thru your attic will help lower your energy bills and also reduce moisture build-up and can prolong the life of your roofing shingles.

lightbulb-blueGoing ‘green’ and installing renewable energy systems, such as solar and wind power, are great investments for the future. Unfortunately many can’t afford to install a these types of systems.

But you don’t have to be a millionaire or refinance your house to go green. There are small changes that can make a big difference. Changing your energy consumption by using more energy efficient lighting and appliances is one example.
