Beat The Heat
Back to Top

Attics can be brutally hot on a summers day. When heat is absorbed by your walls and ceilings, attic temperatures can climb to over 150 degrees. Even if your ceilings are well insulated and your home is air conditioned, this heat can seep down into your home.

Whole House Ventilator
Back to Top

Push the heat out, pull a breeze through.
A whole house fan draws cooler outside air through your open windows and forces it through the attic and out through the roof vents. Your house and your attic are all cooled. Whole house fans are designed to operate in the early morning and after sundown, when the outside temperature drops.

The idea is to turn off the air conditioning and to turn on the whole house fan. With your windows open, fresh, cool air is drawn into your home, forcing out the hot air. Because whole house fans use far less energy than air conditioners, they cut cooling costs. In fact, whole house fans typically use about one-tenth of the electricity of comparably sized air conditioners.

Powered Attic Ventilators
Back to Top

Attic Ventilators remove superheated attic air, making any home more comfortable, whether it’s air conditioned or not. In homes that are, the air conditioners run less and don’t have to work nearly as hard. These units have a 14” diameter steel blade specially designed for maximum air movement. Each unit operates automatically by using an adjustable built-in thermostat.

Recessed Down Lights
Back to Top

According to lighting and design experts, there are several types of lighting techniques and lighting plans that can be used to illuminate spaces within your home. The first, general or ambient lighting, provides even, overall illumination.

This type of light is attractively provided with recessed down-lights and doesn’t clash with any particular type of décor. Down-lights are spaced in a regular pattern, and should be positioned according to furniture placement, windows and door openings.

• Bedrooms can make excellent use of ambient lighting and help eliminate the need for lamp lighting; Have a switch installed for recessed overhead lighting close to where the bed will be located for ease of use.

Baffle Trim Used for general lighting

Eyeball Trim Used for directing light to specific areas such as fireplace mantles

Shower Trim Used for lighting wet locations

General lighting in dining rooms can provide accent lighting to table settings, on either side of a chandelier, and can highlight artwork, buffet displays, or curio objects.

GDown lights mounted 18″ off the edge of the cabinets and spaced 3′ to 4′ on centers is an excellent way to create additional general lighting.

One fixture mounted over the mirror is a good way of lighting the bathroom, but can cause shadows on the face. Addition of recessed down lights mounted 24″ to 36″ on centers between the face and the mirror is a better method for lighting the face and the head.

In bathrooms, down-lights can be used to chase shadows and provide light in spaces that are sometimes overlooked, such as over bathtubs and showers

In living rooms, ambient lights should be placed about 8 feet apart, providing for functional lighting needs as well as for mood setting scenarios using dimmers

Surge Protection
Back to Top

The popularity of home offices, the internet and home theaters means that there are more home electronics that are vulnerable to voltage surges than before. A whole house protection plan must protect against voltage surges on both the power line and the telephone or communication lines.

You may be unaware that surges can enter your expensive electronic equipment (modems, FAX machines, answering machines, TV’s, VCR’s) through telephone lines and cable TV or satellite dish connections. Some home entertainment systems, as well as computers, use more than one of these systems simultaneously.

Power surges in the home can be caused by a number of events. The most obvious is lightning. In some areas, you can expect to have a lightning strike within a square mile of your home at least once a year or more. That strike, should it hit a power line, can send a damaging surge into your home that may spread housewide.

Another type of surge can be caused by power switching at your utility. Either from generator to generator or from utility feeds. These smaller surges occur regularly. In the past, most home appliances could handle the smaller surges, but over time they can damage computer chip based devices.

Ceiling Fans Pay For Themselves
Back to Top

Did you know you save energy in the summer (by as much as 40%) when you turn up the thermostat and turn on a ceiling fan. That’s because in the summer, every single degree below 75 that you set your thermostat you increase your cooling costs by about 9%.

Ceiling fans create a wind chill effect that makes rooms feel cooler than they actually are and cost considerably less to run than your air conditioning system.

In the winter, ceiling fans can move heat trapped near the ceiling back into the living area, reducing heating costs by up to 10%. This is especially valuable in rooms with high or vaulted ceilings.

♦ If you plan on having a workbench, add several GFCI receptacles on a dedicated circuit.
♦ If you plan on installing surround sound speakers, install an empty conduit system so that you can install and/or replace speaker wiring in the future.
♦ Do away with the annoying pullchain string that hangs down in your reach-in closet. Install a switch to turn the closet light on and off.

♦ If you plan on building a patio or deck, install additional coach lights on the back of your house to provide nighttime illumination.
