Heat Pumps: The Right Choice for Portlanders

Heat pump installation is on the rise due to the money and energy savings a heat pump provides. A heat pump is nearly four times more efficient than an oil furnace and can save a household anywhere from 20% – 70% in monthly utility costs. Possibly the best part of installing a heat pump is having an all-in-one heating and cooling system. In the winter, the heat pumps pushes warm air into the home while pulling it out in the summer. Portlanders are particularly good candidates for heat pump ownership, as the temperate climate and low variance in average temperature allow for maximum energy and cost savings. Here at AAA Heating & Cooling we believe that heat pumps are the right choice for Portland homeowners. Call us for details about installing a heat pump in your home.  Infographic provided by http://www.aaaheatingandcoolinginc.com/

HOW TO USE COLOUR IN YOUR HOME

Colour has a huge impact on our mood. It can give us energy, make us feel more creative and help us to chill out.

When it comes to decorating our homes, we can use colour to make the most of different rooms.

When it comes to the bedroom, you’ll want to promote rest and relaxation; that’s why greens, pale pinks and blues are perfect for this space.

Only the very brave would incorporate a floor-to-ceiling colour scheme! For the rest of us, try using accent colours paired with neutrals. Take a look at our infographic to find out more…

Five Popular Home Renovations

Use home equity loans & lines of credit to add value to your home

If you’re thinking about remodeling your home, you should consider the resale value as well. Different remodeling projects will result in varying returns on investment (ROI) in terms of:

  1. The use your family gets out of the new space
  2. Money you save from energy efficient upgrades
  3. An improved resale value of your home

ROI is especially important if you’re using home equity loans or home equity lines of credit to finance your renovations as you’re counting on the renovation to improve the value of your home and therefore your equity investment. You also want to make sure the renovations you make are in keeping with neighborhood upgrades and will appeal to a broad audience when you’re ready to sell. Cost and return will depend on the scope of your remodel and where you live, but these are the top five home renovations with the best return on investment, on average, for a mid-sized, single family home. Speak to a home loan advisor to learn more about home equity loan options from Citizens Bank.
