Check out our blog and seasonal newsletter for the latest from the Tom Rostron Company. Here, you will find information about our newest products and initiatives as well as some special deals for blog and newsletter readers. Every issue, we offer some helpful tips for managing and maintaining your home systems. It’s not all business, though. We share good news from our Monmouth and Ocean county communities and even throw in a favorite recipe from our staff to try at home.
The weather is getting more and more beautiful by the day here in Monmouth and Ocean counties, which has many residents spending as much time outdoors as possible. While there’s nothing better than soaking up the summer sun on a gorgeous day, it helps to be able to have some reprieve and to have a cool home to retreat to at the end of the day. With all the focus on keeping your indoor air cool, however, when was the last time you thought about how clean it is?
At the Tom Rostron Company, we take a “whole home” approach to everything we do. When we come in to evaluate your home, we’re not only looking to install the most state-of-the-art equipment available, but we also examine how your home’s systems interact with one another. After all, your home is like a vehicle, and when one system begins to experience issues, everything else is affected.
When people purchase new equipment, they often do so with the hopes that it will continue serving them for years (if not decades) to come. This being said, all equipment is subject to wear and tear over the years, and even the most expensive units will eventually stop operating at peak capacity. This very same concept can be applied to your AC unit, which just so happens to be a crucial element of comfort and home performance during the summertime.
Spring is finally here, and the warm days of summer are clearly on their way here in Monmouth and Ocean counties. While the weather in New Jersey can be beautiful throughout the summer, there’s no getting around the fact that some days and nights can be uncomfortably hot when temperatures peak. For this and many other reasons, now’s the time to revisit the health of your HVAC system and make sure that you’re prepared for the summer months that lay ahead.
The solution to beating the coming heat? Preventative maintenance with the Tom Rostron Company.
Spring is finally here in Monmouth and Ocean Counties, which has many people attempting to break out of the winter routine to get outside more and more each day. Even so, it often goes overlooked that we tend to spend as much as 90% of our daily time indoors. Whether it’s in an office, the gym, your home or otherwise, it’s important to ensure that you’re spending time in environments that promote health and safety. You can’t control everywhere you go, but you can control your own home.
We talk a lot about home performance here at The Tom Rostron Company, but we’ve never really taken a moment to really define what it is for our customers in Monmouth and Ocean counties. To us, it’s second nature, and to many homeowners, it seems intuitive enough—home performance is how well your home performs, right?
With so many different ways to approach improving home energy efficiency and performance, it can be difficult for many homeowners in Monmouth and Ocean counties to know where to start. Most people know what they’re looking to accomplish (enhanced home comfort, reduced energy bills, or something similar). The difficulty arises, however, in knowing how to move forward. To keep things simple, we recommend taking what we call the “ABC” approach to home performance.
We’ve talked a lot on our blog about how air sealing and insulation are the first two steps towards a healthier, more efficient home. While these upgrades generally form a solid base for home performance, there are other things that can be done in order to ensure an uptick in energy efficiency. One type of product that comes to mind is the mini split heat pump, which has taken the industry by storm over the past handful of years.
A new year is here, which has many homeowners in Monmouth and Ocean counties reevaluating home performance and energy efficiency. The winter chill is in the air, and there’s no better time than now to ensure that you and your family are warm and comfortable in the coming months. What’s the best approach?
