first home buyer

The writer suggests that finding the right home includes considering the temperature inside the home. Heating and cooling is a considerable expense, which can be minimized by taking certain measures, such as limiting the amount of sunlight coming in to a house, learning how to use a digital thermostat, use of ceiling fans, and proper maintenance of A/C equipment.

Key Takeaways:

  • “Depending on where you live and the size of your family, your heating and cooling costs could be your single largest monthly expense throughout the year.”
  • “Deciduous trees block the sun during the summer months and allow the sunlight to hit your windows during the winter months. As a general rule, deciduous trees should be planted west of your home while evergreens should be planted on the north end of your property.”
  • “Your ceiling fans can actually be used throughout the year to keep your home at a consistent temperature. Because warm air rises, ceiling fans should be spinning clockwise at a very low speed during the winter.”

“One of the easiest ways to keep your home as efficient as possible is to have your air conditioner serviced at least once a year by a certified HFAC company, like Cape Fear Air Conditioning & Heating Co., Inc.”
