Why We Love Tankless Water Heaters (And You Should, Too!)

Posted by Emma Mason on Oct 31, 2016 8:09:00 PM

If you are considering buying a new water heater, you have essentially two options. First, you can buy a normal water heater, which comes with a large take for storing the heated water. 

Your other option is a tankless water heater, which heats the water, as needed, on demand.  Most people are more familiar with the tank variety, as this has been the standard for generations.

There are, however, many benefits to choosing tankless.  Not sure which to choose? Here’s why we love tankless water heaters, and why you should love them, too:

  • Unlimited supply of hot water
  • Heaters last twice as long
  • Save 20% on your electric bill

3 Secrets to Keep Your Ducts Clean Forever

Posted by Emma Mason on Oct 26, 2016 7:12:05 PM

When was the last time you had your air ducts cleaned? If you are like most people, you’ve never had them cleaned. Because they are out of sight, they are also often out of mind, and many people just assume that they function perfectly well, no matter how often you use your HVAC system or how often they have been cleaned.

The truth is, however, that in just a few years, layers of dust and other particles carried by the air can start to line and then clog up your ducts. And not only will the air be carrying all of these particles back out into your rooms, they also make it much more difficult for your HVAC system to function properly.

If you want cleaner ducts, so you do not have to pay for as frequent air duct cleanings, here’s what you can do to keep your ducts clean forever (or at least as long as possible):

  • Use MERV 8 filters
  • Install Air scrubbers or UV light 
  • Make sure ducts are sealed
