With energy prices decreasing this winter, homeowners have some spare money they can invest in new projects around the home. Upgrading their HVAC systems and associated devices are a great way to help a home run more efficiently- extending the savings process.
We took a look at some key HVAC areas where homeowners can see a quick return on their spend. These investments can help lower utility costs and enable homes to run more efficiently. It’s been about 15 years since the new construction boom at the beginning of the millennium – time to make some capital investments in heating and plumbing.
In addition to major upgrades or replacements to furnaces and air conditioning units, simple upgrades within the home can also contribute greatly to efficiency and comfort. As homeowners look to better manage their indoor comfort, they are looking at solutions that make it easier to control their indoor comfort when they are at and away from home. Devices that offer a mobile app are attractive to homeowners.
This leads up into the discussion of investing in smart solutions for the home. Homeowners want to monitor and control their indoor comfort – from heating and cooling to air quality – when at work, vacation, travel, anywhere. And for those caring for elderly family members, for landlords managing renters or for people with second homes, the ability to manage heating and cooling while displaced for the home is crucial.
