Programmable Thermostats

One of the simplest ways to green your home is by using a programmable thermostat which Regal Homes includes as a standard feature in every home. The suggested temperature in colder weather is 68 degrees while 78 degrees in warm weather. You can also shave an additional 3-5% off your energy bill for every degree you set your thermostat below 68 in the winter months & above 78 in the summer months. Nest thermostats are another great option to cut your energy bill spending down.

Tankless Water Heater

The time spent waiting for your shower to warm up adds up over time. Imagine having hot water quicker. It is possible & you are able to enjoy this with a tankless water heater. They heat the water that’s needed as it passes through an electric coil which in return eliminates energy costs, often saves 50% on your energy bill, & frees up storage space.
