Cooler winter temperatures are now becoming the norm here in Dixon, Davis and Vacaville. This is the time of year when everyone simply wants to stay warm and comfortable, which can be easier said than done if you’re experiencing issues with your HVAC system or water heater. The issue of lukewarm water is something that no one ever wants to deal with, yet some homeowners find themselves affected not only in the winter, but throughout the entire year.
As temperatures steadily drop in the area from Davis to Fairfield, it’s clear that winter is right around the corner. In order to ensure that you stay warm this season, you need to get your home’s heating system ready.
So, what’s the best way to prepare for winter?
As Winter approaches your furnace needs to work well to keep you and your family warm. Maintaining your furnace and knowing when it needs repairs or replacement is key to staying comfortable and having piece of mind.
Traditional central or window air conditioning units or furnaces aren’t the only ways to cool and heat your home anymore. Heating and cooling your home in Central California has never been easier, more energy efficient or flexible than with a mini split.
There’s been a lot of talk in the community about the benefits of “going solar.” It’s one of the most common topics we get asked about here at Greiner, and for good reason. Solar power represents the future of renewable energy, yet it’s already right here and ready to enjoy. One of the biggest questions from homeowners in the Davis, Woodland, Vacaville and Winters is in regards to how solar energy actually works.
Having good indoor air quality (IAQ) is essential to a healthy, comfortable home. Unfortunately, IAQ issues can be hard to detect, and can go unnoticed in many homes. For homeowners in the Davis, Dixon, Winters, Vacaville, Fairfield, and Woodland areas, Greiner is here to help assess and improve your home’s IAQ!
The heat of summer is in full swing here in Davis, Dixon and Woodland, CA. Many homeowners are running their AC units at full blast, yet it still seems next to impossible to keep their homes cool. For those who find themselves in this boat, the problem may have less to do with the actual AC unit than with two of the most important factors of home performance—insulation and air sealing.
For many homeowners outside the Sacramento area, the quest to stay cool and comfortable this summer has already begun. While everyone wants to get the most out of their AC’s lifespan, it’s important to realize that even the best air conditioners need maintenance regularly and eventual replacement in order to be effective. If your AC isn’t operating up to par any longer, now may be the perfect time to consider a new, high-efficiency AC unit.
Many homes in the Southern California area rely heavily on central air conditioning during the summer. If you compare the duct system in your home to a living, breathing creature, duct work would be your home’s veins, transporting conditioned air evenly throughout the home. When an artery is blocked, torn, or suffering from infection, the air condition and efficiency of transportation are affected.
According to a study published by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Americans tend to spend approximately 87% of their time indoors. For this reason alone, it’s important to think about the quality of the air we breathe. It’s something that most people only think about when dealing with smog and pollution outside, but given the amount of time we spend inside, indoor air can actually have more of a profound effect on our health than the air outside.
