What we like about Housecall is their service.  It has been many months since our home inspection, and my wife and I still call them to ask questions.  They always take the time to talk with us and we never feel rushed.  This is our first home, and it is nice knowing you have someone you can call.  They deliver on their promise.        -  Mr. & Mrs. Pickard, San Diego

Ceiling fans are used by many to help reduce the electricity costs associated with heating or cooling a home. By circulating the air in the room, both warm and cool air can be more evenly distributed. Ceiling fans have the power to reduce the body temperature during the warm months, allowing for the thermostat to be adjusted accordingly. Though the benefits of their use are quite clear, much is to be learned about the ceiling fan.

If you are one of the nearly seven and a half million people that live within a 50 mile radius of the San Onofre Power Plant blackouts may be in your future. It appears that the plant will remain closed at least until August while needed repairs are being made. Summer temperatures are always associated with an increase in the amount of energy used in the home. This summer, those who live in Southern California may need to be more aware of usage in order to help prevent blackouts.

Are Water Saving Toilets Worth the Expense?
Energy Conservation
(1 vote)
The amount of water that will be saved by switching to water saving toilets will be based on how many people live in the home, as well as the number of times the toilet is flushed each day. You can do the math yourself by using the fact that an old toilet uses approximately five to seven gallons of water each time it is flushed, with the water saving variety using approximately 1.3 - 1.6 gallons. The exact numbers can be determined by learning which gallon models you are using.
