The 12 Least Expensive Ways To Save Energy Around the Home

  1. Caulk around windows, doors and anywhere air is leaking in or out. 
  2. Apply weather striping around windows and doors. 
  3. Wrap heating and cooling ducts with duct wrap. 
  4. Set the furnace thermostat at 68 degrees or lower.
  5. Replace your furnace filter regularly.

Plumbing and Electrical Tips For Remodeling Your Kitchen

When it's time to remodel your old kitchen there are many choices to make about design, finishes, colors and materials. When choosing plumbing and electrical fixtures there new faucets, sinks, disposals and lighting fixtures. Here are some upgrades to consider.

Upgrade to LED light fixtures

Typical incandescent bulbs are rated to last between 1,000 to 2,000 hours. Many LED bulbs are quoted as lasting 25,000 to 50,000 hours. This long life can be a real advantage if your kitchen has high ceilings which makes changing burned out light bulbs a hassle.

LED bulbs also use much less electricity than other bulbs and produce little heat. They are also resistant to shock and vibration.

So while the price of LEDs is considerably more than standard incandescent or CFL bulbs, in the long run the advantages may be worth the expense.

Touchless Faucets

Touchless faucets work by sensing movement under the faucet and starting and stopping the flow of water without using knobs or handles. This not only frees your hands so you can cook and cleanup faster, it means there's less chance of spreading germs throughout the kitchen.

For all your kitchen remodeling plumbing and electrical needs, call Ostrom Electric and Plumbing. We're here to help.


What Your Neighbors Are Saying ...

On April 1st (April fools day - go figure) my wife called me at work telling me there was smoke coming from our service panel. After advising her to contact the local fire department and having the meter pulled I left work to start what appeared to be a not so good vacation. With no power to find an electrician on my computer I had to do a search through my blackbery and OSTROM Electrical popped up. After talking with Steve, he had a service tech at my house within an hour. 4.5 hours later we had a new service panel, junction box, wiring and most off all, "POWER". I was surprised at how professional Daniel was on the install and how fast. I couldn't beleive this was happening to me on a Friday right before I was to start my vacation. I have recommended OSTROM to every one I know since that day. Now I am covered under their partner program and feel better knowing that I am under the umbrella of OSTROM Electrical. Thouroghly impressed by their service ...

Thank you for your quick response ...
