Protect Your Garbage Disposal And Keep It Running Smoothly
Don't Put Certain Foods Down the Drain
Garbage disposals are a great way to help keep your kitchen clean, but it’s important to remember that not all foods should be put down the drain. Fibrous materials, like celery and onion skins, can clog your drain, while sticky materials, like grease, can be difficult for the disposal to grind up. Always refer to the manufacturer's instructions to see what can and cannot be put down your disposal.
The United States Department of Energy has changed the air conditioner and heat pump rating system from SEER, EER and HSPF to SEER2, EER2 and HSPF2. These new ratings better reflect the real-world conditions in which these air conditioners and heat pumps are being installed. Upgrading to an air conditioner or heat pump with the new ratings will help you maximize efficiency and comfort in your home.

During prolonged freezing weather, using a pellet stove or wood stove can have dangerous consequences. These stoves can trick thermostats into thinking your home is warmer than it is and cause your heating systems to stay inactive. To protect boiler pipes from cold weather, it is important not to use wood stoves or pellet stoves. Without adequate heat and water flow, boiler pipes located in corners and near exterior walls may freeze, leading to a range of costly issues that are best avoided.
Ecobee's "Aux Heat Runtime Alert" sets the amount of time that the auxiliary heat source can run continuously before an alert is generated. Auxiliary heat is the backup or secondary heat that assists or takes over for your heat pump. In New Hampshire, auxiliary heat is typically a furnace, boiler, or electric strip heater. The default setting for this alert is 3 hours. If your auxiliary heat runs for 3 hours in a day, the alert will be generated. This is typically not cause for concern, in New Hampshire there are many days when the auxiliary heat source or backup heat should take over. The Aux Heat Runtime Alert can be disabled, or the time can be increased to remove or reduce the frequency of the alerts.
