For many of us in the Pacific Northwest, installing air conditioning does not always make sense since it would only see use during the summer. However, if you are remodeling your home, there are techniques that reduces the need for air conditioning during those hot, humid summer days.
Replace old windows with new, more efficient ones. Dual pane, Low E glass windows keep summer heat out and cool air in. As an added plus, these windows also keep cold winter out of your home and warm air in during the cold seasons. They also provide UV protection for your interior to prevent sun damage and discoloration. Renewal offers high quality windows with energy efficiency, low maintenance, durability, lifetime warranties, and award winning performance.
While regular fans are an option, ceiling fans tend to be the best for consistent airflow throughout your rooms. They can also add to your décor and you will not have to worry about storing them during the cooler seasons of the year.
3. Natural Ventilation
If you do decide to install an air conditioning system, ductless split systems save energy by localizing temperature control in your home. You can control what rooms are cooled and to what degree. These work well for home additions, as alternatives to ducts.
