Does your air conditioning really take a toll on your homes electric bill? Are you getting the proper air flow out of your air conditioning vents? Or are you loosing valuable cool air into your attic? This is a problem many of us who live in Southwest Florida have. I recently did interior painting of a condo in Cape Coral. When we removed the switch plates from around the electric outlets from the walls of this Cape Coral condo, there was more cold air coming from where the switch plates were removed then the air conditioning vents. I notified the homeowner who lives in New York, and they were not surprised. They had a new air conditioning unit installed by a well know company and it they new they had a problem, but no one could find a problem. I notified Mike Clark the owner of United Mechanical, he then called the homeowner and with her blessing sent a United Mechanical technician to the condo, went up in the attic to find that several of the ducts were loose blowing cold air into the attic. That was some serious wasted energy. United Mechanical is well aware of how homeowners can save energy. They have come up with a E-Book "7 Ways to Lower your Energy Costs" which you can download from their website.
At Home Blinds and Decor offer energy saving window fashions by Hunter Douglas. Their window fashions help control sun-generated heat by allowing it into your home in the winter and minimizing the amount that enters your home in the summer. Natural light is warm and welcoming, but over time it can fade and damage a room's furnishings and decor. Just like the paint on the exterior of your home. Many of Hunter Douglas's products reduce the need for artificial lighting by harnessing daylight, diffusing and channeling it deep into a room, many of their products offer UV protection to help counter the harmful effects of sunlight.
