No one wants to admit it, but winter is surely on its way here in Monmouth and Ocean Counties. The cooler temps are becoming more and more apparent with each passing week, and area homeowners are taking steps towards ensuring that they’re ready for the ice and snow that lay ahead. One of the most important aspects of home efficiency and performance to look at is the current health of your furnace. When was the last time you had a furnace checkup performed?
There’s been a lot of discussion lately among homeowners in Monmouth and Ocean counties about whether it’s better to have small amounts of outside air enter the home or to seal the home as tightly as possible. As with any aspect of home performance and energy efficiency, there’s no such thing as a “one size fits all” solution that can be applied across the board to all homes.
With the hot, humid summer weather we’re having in Monmouth and Ocean County, you’re probably running your AC nonstop. Running your air conditioning continuously means you should have regular maintenance performed as well as consider the other elements that affect just how well your home is staying cool.
It’s been a beautiful summer so far here in Monmouth and Ocean Counties, but also one that has seen its fair share of hot, humid days. When the summer sun is beating down, cooling a home can be challenging—especially those hard-to-reach rooms in which temperatures never seem to be stable. In many cases, the problem can be attributed not to the cooling system, but to the home’s building envelope.
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?
