Energy Efficient Homes Introduces New Blog

October 09, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Energy Efficient Homes, based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, has announced that they have introduced a new blog. The blog is focused on providing helpful content on how to have more energy efficient and better performing heating and cooling systems for the home like furnaces and air conditioners. For example, one article stresses the importance of having a home furnace properly maintained to minimize the risk of having a furnace breaking down at inconvenient times like in the middle of the night in the middle of winter.

Brant J. Hall, a spokesperson for Energy Efficient Homes, says, “Imagine your furnace breaking down in the middle of winter after your wife just gives birth. The last thing you want to have to worry about is a cold house when you are leaving the hospital with a newborn baby.”

He continues, “That’s why we have launched a new blog that can provide helpful articles for homeowners. These articles can help them have more effective and more efficient HVAC systems they can rely on so that their homes are more energy efficient too.”

One important content on the blog focuses on the importance of finding a reputable company that installs furnaces. This is because there are a wide range of alternatives when looking for a furnace installation company and not all of them are good. The article presents a number of criteria that homeowners can use in evaluating each provider and finally make the best choice for themselves. Those who would like to learn more about Energy Efficient Homes can check out their YouTube channel.

Homeowners should also be on the lookout for certain signs that their furnace needs to be checked. For instance, homeowners might notice a burning smell or the smell of spoiled eggs. If they notice such smells, it is advisable to shut down the system and call for emergency service.

Another important aspect of HVAC systems, especially those that have not been maintained or cleaned for a long time, is that air pollutants are being circulated in the home. Dust, dirt, pollen, animal hair, and other pollutants can accumulate in the air ducts and these get circulated in the home, causing allergies in susceptible people, leading to headaches, sinus infections, itchy eyes, cold-like symptoms, and even asthma. This emphasizes the importance of the regular maintenance of HVAC systems. With the approaching winter season, this has become even more urgent as most people would be indoors most of the time.

Once again, it is important to look for the best HVAC specialist to check on the home’s HVAC system to ensure that it will be performing at its best during the colder seasons. For this coming winter season, it would be a good idea to check on the furnace. For instance, homeowners may find that some rooms are too hot while some are too cold. This might mean that the furnace has lost its ability to appropriately distribute the heated air in the home.

Another important thing to check is the flame of the furnace. If it is a yellow or flickering flame, it might be producing carbon monoxide. This is an odorless and colorless gas that is poisonous to people. Thus, it is essential to have the home furnace checked regularly to avoid such dangers to the health of people in the home.

Homeowners may also notice strange noises coming from the furnace, especially from those that have been there for a long time. This may mean that some of the mechanical parts are no longer working properly. Or people may notice that the furnace blower may be running too long or too much. Or it may be blowing cold air sometimes. These may be signs that the furnace already needs to be replaced and it is time to look for a reliable HVAC installation and repair company to check on it and possibly have the furnace repaired or replaced.

SAN ANTONIO — A Native American group is calling on officials to slow down the renovation of the Alamo church in San Antonio, after archaeological reports showed human remains were found at the property.

SALT LAKE CITY — The U.S. government's final management plan for land in and around a Utah national monument that President Donald Trump downsized doesn't include many new protections for the cliffs, canyons, waterfalls and arches found there, but it does include a few more safeguards than were in a proposal issued last year. The Bureau of Land Management's plan for the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in southwestern Utah codifies that the lands cut out of the monument will be open to mineral extraction such as oil, gas and coal as expected, according to a plan the agency provided to...

Shard reveals how Cyprus' ancient kingdoms managed economy

Oct 23, 2019

NICOSIA, Cyprus — The discovery of a small clay shard inscribed with a partial inventory of goods at a 2,500-year-old citadel suggests that Cyprus' ancient city states "more than likely" managed their economies using a homegrown system, not an imported one, an archaeologist said Wednesday. University of Cyprus Professor Maria Iacovou told The Associated that the recent discovery at the ancient kingdom of Paphos on Cyprus' southwestern coast refutes the notion that Cypriot city states managed their economies based on systems brought over from foreign kingdoms, like those of neighboring Phoenician city states. The inscription on the shard was in...
