Dog Days of Summer

These last few weeks in New England have brought several heat waves and we are stuck in the Dog Days of Summer.  So many of these days were above 90 degrees and humid.  It is times like these we do not want to be left with our cooling systems failing or not being reliable.


What are your days like?  Do you work out and cherish coming home to air conditioning?  Do you have an infant at home and really need your living space to be more comfortable?  What about sleep… Are you getting enough quality sleep or are you trying to tough it out in 95 degree temperatures?  You definitely want to make sure everything is constantly working properly.


For us, we go to work and school (even in the summer) all day, but then we go to the barn.  Taking care of horses is hard work and it doesn’t matter if it is 95 degrees out.  Hauling hay, grain, working with tack and saddles, cleaning stalls, lugging large buckets of water – these are very demanding workouts and that doesn’t even count the workout from riding the horses.  When we get home – we are exhausted and would be quite irritable if we had to come home to a house that is over 100 degrees.  Our house has three stories and the higher we go, naturally the hotter it gets if we don’t have the air on.

Federal Tax Credits for Home Improvements

Did you know: there are federal energy tax credits available? You can upgrade your home, get tax credits and companies like Sears make sure you are aware of these benefits and you can stack savings.  We often take advantage of these types of credits when performing home improvements.

A number of tax credits for residential energy efficiency have been renewed.  These tax credits are available for purchases made in 2016, as well as retroactive to purchases made in 2015.  ENERGY STAR products eligible for tax credits are independently certified to save energy, save money and protect the environment.  Use up to 30% less energy in your home by outfitting it with ENERGY STAR products available across more than 70 categories.  Learn more about Federal Tax Credits!


So, as long as we maintain our HVAC systems and get our Free In Home consultation – we should continue to be able to come home to a nice comfortable environment after working at the barn.  Everyone will be happy – including our dog!  And for me – best of all, we will all be able to sleep comfortably at bed time without it being 90+ degrees.  But if we need assistance we will be calling Sears Home Improvement.  Thankfully they have flexible scheduling options because our schedules are full!
