If you struggle to keep your home at a comfortable temperature during the hot summer months, you could be wondering how you can keep your family cool and save money on your cooling bills. One thing that you might not realize is that you can start with your windows. If you follow these tips, you can enjoy cooler in-home temperatures when it's hot outside, and you can also greatly reduce the amount of money that you have to spend on air conditioning each year.
The winter months are the time when you rely on the comfort of your home more than ever. After all, the harsh, cold winter weather makes you want to just curl up under a warm blanket with a cup of hot tea or coffee and stay cozy all day long.
However, if your heating system fails during the winter, you may find yourself in an uncomfortable and unpleasant predicament. While you are waiting for your contractor to come in and perform a new heating installation, you will need to come up with ways to stay warm in the meantime.
Many people are surprised to learn just how often condensers (the outside part of an air conditioning system) are stolen. Criminals will most often strike when you're away from home on a trip or at work, since moving a condenser makes a lot of noise. One of the reasons why condensers are such a draw for thieves is that they contain a lot of copper, which the thieves can sell. Fortunately, there are things you can do to help prevent this kind of theft.
