Comfortable Indoor Temperatures at Comfortable Rates

Categories: Energy Efficiency | Posted: August 20, 2020

With communities in North and South Carolina, all of us at H&H Homes are familiar with hot, sticky summers, where cool, indoor air is a daily essential. That’s why we prioritize climate control that gives you full power over the temperature in our energy-efficient homes. Thermostats that you can program according to your own schedule and convenience can save you hundreds on your heating and air conditioning bills. Set the times for heating and cooling according to your work, sleep, and activity schedule. You can pre-set six or more temperature options within a day, freeing you up to enjoy a comfortable home without needing to think about it. Ceiling fans are also a cost-effective option that helps to keep rooms freshly ventilated in all seasons. A counter-clockwise fan breeze in the summer months can help to cool you down, while a clockwise fan motion at low speeds in winter months will push warmer air near the ceiling down to you.

Another smart option H&H Homes offers are heat pumps. Heat pumps are an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners. They use electricity to push warm air to already warm spaces like attics, preserving cooler temperatures where you need them most. During the colder months of the year, heat pumps will transfer chilly air to the coldest areas of your house, conserving heat where you need it. Heat pumps transfer heat rather than generating it, and can stabilize indoor temperatures at as little as a fourth of the cost of conventional radiators or air conditioners.
