Improve Your Home’s Energy Efficiency

We usually think of energy efficiency as a winter affair, with homes in the La Habra area needing to retain heat when the weather drops. But in truth, energy efficiency can take place all year, and with our comparatively mild weather, most people don’t take full advantage of it. You’d be surprised how much you can save when you improve your home’s energy efficiency, and how comparatively simple it is to do with the right service at your side. Here are a few easy ways to do so, and help your monthly budget survive the energy crunch.


Most people think of insulation as a way of keeping heat in their home, and they’d be right. But it’s a two-way process, which means that it can keep heat out of your home in the summer just as well. That also means your air conditioner won’t have to work as hard and your home can enjoy cooler temperatures without as much effort.

Energy Recovery Ventilators

These ingenious devices are placed in your attic, and facilitate an exchange between the air outside your home and the air inside your home. It freshens the air without altering the temperature, and more importantly, retains a great deal of the energy expended in heating or cooling the air in your home. As a result, your hater and air conditioner becomes much more efficient, and you can continue to enjoy comfortable temperatures at a substantial savings in your monthly budget.


As we’ve learned this summer, high humidity can be a factor here in Southern California. It makes the air feel hotter than it is and make it harder for the air conditioner to do its job. AC units serve as dehumidifiers by default, but they’re not built for the job. A formal dehumidification system can remove the excess moisture from the home and give your air conditioner the break it deserves.
