Home Zones – How Many Do You Really Need?

One of the most common complaints that we hear from homeowners in the Nashua, NH area and surrounding towns is that their home’s temperature is inconsistent. One room is too hot, while another is too cold. It can be tempting to throw a separate zone and thermostat in every room just to deal with that frustration. But is that really necessary?

Hot Water Heaters - Joyce Cooling & Heating

Finding the Right Temperature for Your Hot Water Heater

A homeowner in Hudson, New Hampshire recently asked:

“What’s the sweet spot for the temperature of my hot water heater?”

In doing so he wanted to reduce his monthly bill, while also being sure that the water never runs cold for his family. If you have the temperature set too high, you will begin to feel it in the pain of your utility bills, too low and you leave your tank susceptible to bacteria growth.

Winter is right around the corner for us here in New Hampshire and with it will come the ongoing battle with dry air in your home, as the heating system takes on a full-time job.

Holding Out to Turn on the Heat? Don’t!

As we gear up for fall here in New Hampshire, the cool temperatures have set in at night. Many homeowners open the windows to enjoy the fall-like temperature for sleeping. But we have already seen nights where temperatures are dropping into an area where you may be shivering as you shut the window.

In an effort to delay the inevitable heating bills that are coming, homeowners also tend to put off turning on their heating system, many hoping to hold out until the start of October. While this may seem reasonable, and like a good way to save money, it can end up backfiring in the end.

When the temperature plummets, calls we receive for heating system service in the Nashua and surrounding areas begin to rise. This increased demand means that it may take a little longer to get a technician to your home to evaluate the system. If a part has to be ordered, this can further delay the time to get your heating unit up and running.

This can all be avoided simply by turning on the heating system now, while the temperature is still crisp yet comfortable outside. If there is a problem with your heater, it can be addressed early enough in the season before the rush of panicked homeowners during those frigid months.

Testing your heating system now is as simple as turning it on during a cool fall day and ensuring that it is warming the home to the set temperature in a timely manner. This simple step can save a lot of headaches during the winter ahead.

Heating and Air Conditioning All in the Same Week? Welcome to New England

This month has been a whirlwind as far as the weather, with the fickle New England temperatures going from summer-like to a late-fall feel overnight, and back again. At Joyce Cooling & Heating, this has kept our technicians on our toes as they have answered service calls in Nashua, Hollis, and the surrounding communities. It isn’t many places where you can be servicing an air conditioning system and a heating unit all in the same week.

In the world of heating and air conditioning we often encourage our customers to think a season ahead, and for good reason. However, with this type of fickle weather it is hard to plan ahead, making it important to have your heating and air conditioning units both in proper working order at any given time.

Scheduling regular maintenance check-ups on your systems at the start of each season will do just that. Technicians can ensure that the heating or air conditioning unit is running efficiently and head off any problems before they can become bigger.

This type of simple, preventative maintenance will keep your home and your family comfortable, no matter what the weather outside has to offer. After all, despite what the calendar may say, your home should be the temperature that is comfortable to you. Regular maintenance on your air conditioning and heating systems will do just that.

Adjusting Your Home’s Temperature Remotely Is within Your Grasp

Years ago the idea of adjusting your home’s temperature remotely may have felt like something out of the future, but this is becoming more and more commonplace. Homeowners are transitioning away from the more archaic traditional thermostat in favor of a programmable version. The next step up from there, and a direction in which the market is headed, is wi-fi thermostats.
