“ZONING saved my marriage!” Anonymous, Overland Park
By giving homeowners more control over how they heat and cool their home, a zoning system enables the creation of comfort zones that are customizable for each room or “zone,” which keeps all family members happy while saving money on energy bills at the same time. Instead of sending the same amount of heated or cooled air into all rooms when the furnace or air conditioner is turned on, multiple thermostats allow the system to send conditioned air only to the zones that need it and only when they need it.
Nothing tests the limits of your AC unit like a heatwave, and when a heatwave hits, it spares no one! That is when heating and cooling companies like Anthony Plumbing, Heating & Cooling get slammed with calls from suffering homeowners all at once, and not everyone can be helped immediately. These tips are good to know when you are waiting on the phone, or in your hot home, for an HVAC technician to save the day!
Why is Water Conservation Important?
Today, the average person uses about 80 – 100 gallons of water every day.
It’s easy to forget that water is a limited resource. This is where water conservation comes in. It would be impossible for us to live without water, so we need to wisely use the resources that we have left.
By being conscious of water conversation, we’re also saving energy. The majority of the world’s energy is used to filter and pump our water supply. Less CO2 will pollute the atmosphere when we use less hot water.
Typical well water is at high risk of contaminants such as bacteria/parasites, lead, and sediment.
The first decision you’ll need to make when installing a water filtration system is whether you want one filter to serve the whole house or to install one in select water dispensers. There are pros and cons to both options…
Individual water filters are cheaper if you just want to filter a couple water dispensers as opposed to the whole house. The downside, though, is that only certain sinks or showers will have filtered water and you will have to replace multiple filters every month.
