Cervone Deegan + Associates knows that when you move into your new home you will want to make it comfortable and efficient. To accomplish this you will need to have the right appliances that will save you money and provide you with comfortable living. Here are some helpful tips on how to tackle this.
Tankless Water Heater
Most homes have a hot water heater that involves a large tank. The tank uses power regularly to heat the water to be in the tank on standby but inevitably will experience some heat loss meaning the unit needs to continuously work to keep its higher temperature. Today, modern homes or renovations are now more commonly using a tankless system as they can be more efficient. The other benefit is that they are usually small and can easily fit on a shelf or wall where they take up less room which can free up more storage space. There are only a couple of drawbacks to this system. If you have many sources working off the system you may not have a strong enough unit to supply the heavier demand. Also, if you lose power then you will lose your hot water as there is no reserve tank to draw off.
Most homes these days will have an HVAC system that will heat and cool the entire home by way of ducts carrying the air to each room. Air filters are used to control dust and debris which need to be changed regularly, but still have some pass-through. While this may be the most common system, it is not the only one that exists. More and more these days we are seeing split systems for a couple of reasons. For one, they can be healthier as they are ductless which improves the air quality. Additionally, where there are multiple units you have the ability to only run the zones you want which helps conserve energy.
Energy Saving Kitchen Appliances
The kitchen is always referred to as the heart of the home. Whether it is just you and your family home or if you are entertaining it is one room that so much time is usually spent in. First, you will want to make sure that you have a nice set of matching appliances. This also includes your supplemental counter appliances like coffee makers and the like for the right aesthetics. When picking these out, take the opportunity to get ones that not only offer the right features for you but are also energy efficient for cost savings.
Kick things off right by having a good, higher-end vacuum. Your vacuum is a staple household item and will be called on for numerous jobs every week so investing in a good one can really pay off. Pick one that is lighter weight, can do different types of carpeting, and hard flooring, and has attachments for hard-to-reach corners and ceilings. Having an upholstery attachment is also a big bonus, especially for those who have pets!
Purchasing the right appliances will have you living a more easy and comfortable life, you will be happy you did!
