Evenly distributed temperatures using construction, systems, and technology make a home more comfortable to live in. Here are five ways to utilize energy-efficiency and other home upgrades to make your home more comfortable to live in.

Smart Thermostat

1. Install a Programmable Thermostat or a Smart and Automated Thermostat to regulate your home’s temperature.  A programmable thermostat is designed to adjust the temperature according to a series of programmed settings to automatically reduce heating and cooling in your home when you don’t need as much, delivering savings without sacrificing comfort.  A Smart thermostat performs the same function, but it allows you to adjust the settings from internet connected devices, such as your smartphone. 

Weatherizing

2. Install Window and Door Weatherstripping. Weatherizing your drafty windows and doors will reduce uncomfortable drafts, protect your home’s interior from the elements, particularly from sunlight, precipitation and wind, reduce energy consumption and optimize energy efficiency.
