If you’re looking to get healthier, spend more time with family and save money in the new year, you should set resolutions for your home. Although you probably have some personal goals, by taking steps to improve your El Cerrito area home you can add to your success in 2017.
1. Schedule an Energy Assessment
Start by scheduling a home energy assessment. It will provide unique insights into your home’s energy usage. You will gain a view into areas that are inadequately insulated and air sealed, have indoor air quality (IAQ) issues, ventilation losses, HVAC efficiency and inefficient appliances.
After seeing a comprehensive picture of what’s happening inside your Bay Area home, you’ll be able to take the necessary steps to remedy any problems. By implementing recommendations after an energy assessment, you can make your home more healthy, comfortable and energy efficient.
2. Upgrade Air Sealing & Insulation
If your home isn’t properly air sealed and insulated, you may be experiencing extreme issues with high energy bills, temperature regulation, drafts and even poor indoor air quality. By air sealing your home and improving its insulation, particularly by adding attic insulation, you’ll soon realize just how comfortable your home can be.
3. Ventilate & Purify Your Home’s Air
Poor indoor air quality in your home can be making you and your family sick. If you have experienced breathing problems, asthma or allergies, improving your home’s IAQ can alleviate some symptoms.
A heat recovery ventilator (HRV) can offer superior mechanical ventilation for your home and provide fresh air while getting rid of musty air. If you or someone in your family has been experiencing respiratory issues, an air purifier from IQAir can help. By removing indoor air pollutants, your home’s air will be healthier, allowing you to breathe easy. Appropriate home ventilation and air purification measures will help resolve issues with poor IAQ that can have a severe impact on health.
4. Schedule HVAC Maintenance
Preventative maintenance for your home’s heating and cooling systems allows you to enjoy comfort year-round, while preventing unexpected breakdowns and high energy bills. The easiest way to ensure you remember having your HVAC system properly maintained is with a service agreement.
5. Go Solar
Solar energy is the solution for homeowners in El Cerrito, Oakland and the surrounding areas who are looking to save money and reduce their impact on the environment. Installing a solar system for your home will decrease and even potentially eliminate your electric bills, while also reducing your overall reliance on fossil fuels.
