Winter is Coming.

Categories: Home Maintenance | Posted: January 7, 2016 | Comments Off on Winter is Coming.

We’re officially two weeks into the 2015-2016 winter season and so far, the south has stayed quite warm.  Right now as I look outside my office window here at DanRic Homes, I see a pretty typical gloomy winter sky with a temperature around 63 degrees, not too shabby for January. However, this year we are in the midst of El Nino, which of course means that we are to expect the unexpected in terms of weather conditions. So while right now it might not seem like Winter is Coming, John Snow, the smarter folks at the Weather Channel say we need to start preparing for the cold. So today I am going to share some helpful tips for winterizing your home, saving money and being prepared for whatever the winter might throw your way!

  1. Be a draft dodger. No, I’m not getting political. I’m talking drafts around doors and windows. Those are the drafts you need to avoid. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the average American spends $2,000 paying for energy annually, $200 to $400 could be going to waste from drafts, air leaks around openings, and outdated heating and cooling systems. In order to avoid this, seal the gaps around floors, walls, ceilings, windows, doors, and fireplaces with caulk, spray foam, and weather stripping. The potential energy savings from reducing drafts in a home may range from 5% to 30% per year, and the home is generally much more comfortable afterward.
  2. Change your air filters. I cannot stress this enough. One of the biggest energy busters and HVAC problem inducers is forgetting to change the air filter on your HVAC unit. This is a home owner maintenance item that should be done monthly to ensure your unit is running efficiently. Have trouble remembering to change your filter? Try changing it on the day you receive your utility bill in the mail each month!
  3. Reverse your ceiling fans. During winter, the warm air generated by your heating system naturally rises to the ceiling while cooler air sinks. By switching the direction that your fan blades turn, that cooler air is drawn upwards, which forces the warmer air near the ceiling back down into the space, which can save up to 10% on your heating bill!
  4. Have your HVAC servicedKeeping your unit clean, lubricated and properly adjusted will reduce energy use, saving up to 5% of heating costs.

  5. Clean your gutters. Do it now, while it’s still warm! Making sure that water can flow freely through your gutters will help prevent icicles and ice dams from forming later.
  6. Install a Programmable Thermostat The US Department of Energy says you can save as much as 1% on your energy bill for every degree you lower your home’s temperature during the winter. Install a programmable thermostat and save money by keeping the temp down when you’re not at home.

Follow the tips above to save more money and stay warmer this winter.

Service your air conditioner and stay cool all summer!

Categories: Home Maintenance, Homeowner Maintenance | Posted: July 23, 2015 | Comments Off on Service your air conditioner and stay cool all summer!

Today we’d like to talk a little about Homeowner Maintenance. Specifically, HVAC maintenance. Something that many homeowners may not realize is, your home’s HVAC is kind of like your car – you must service it to get the max out of its potential performance.

REPLACE OR CLEAN YOUR FILTER MONTHLY

The easiest and arguably most important thing you can do to care for your home’s air conditioner is regularly clean or change your filter. A dirty air filter will block normal airflow and reduce a system’s efficiency significantly. Replacing or cleaning a dirty, clogged filter one can lower your air conditioner’s energy consumption by 5% to 15%.

Common filter locations are in walls, ceilings, or in the air conditioner itself.

Some types of filters are reusable; others must be replaced. They are available in a variety of types and efficiencies. Clean or replace your air conditioning system’s filter or filters every month. Filters may need more frequent attention if the air conditioner is in constant use, is subjected to dusty conditions, or you have fur-bearing pets in the house.

CLEAN YOUR EVAPORATOR COIL ANNUALLY

A lesser known item that needs to be serviced and cleaned is your air conditioner’s evaporator coil. The air conditioner’s evaporator coil and condenser coil collect dirt over its years of service. A clean filter will prevent the evaporator coil from soiling quickly, however, in time, the evaporator coil will still collect dirt. This dirt reduces airflow and insulates the coil, reducing its ability to absorb heat.

CLEAN YOUR CONDENSATION DRAINS  FREQUENTLY

Over time, algae, mold and mildew can build up in the condensation drain line and cause a clog. In order to prevent this, clean your home’s condensation drains. Clogged drain channels prevent a unit from reducing humidity, and the resulting excess moisture may discolor walls or carpet. A completely clogged drain line can also overflow, causing water damage to your home and a lot of headache. Add this routine maintenance to your home’s maintenance calendar and save yourself a lot of headache in the future.

WHEN IN DOUBT – ASK A PROFESSIONAL

There are many resources on the internet which will you guide you on how to properly maintain your home’s HVAC. However, when in doubt – call a professional and have your unit serviced. A professional HVAC tech can give you tips to help your unit run more efficiently so that you can stay cool – without breaking the bank!

Builder Partnerships Names DanRic Homes Winners of Builder of Choice™ Award

Categories: Uncategorized | Posted: January 21, 2015 | Comments Off on Builder Partnerships Names DanRic Homes Winners of Builder of Choice™ Award

We are very excited to announce that we were awarded the Builder of Choice™ award by our trade and supply partners! Check out the press release announcing our win, below!

Builder Partnerships Names DanRic Homes Winners of Builder of Choice™ Award
Denver, Co. – DanRic Homes a new home builder based in LaGrange, Georgia was awarded the Builder of Choice™ award by its trade and supplier partners for demonstrating excellence in managing their trade and supplier relationships.

“As the housing industry picks up speed, there will be an inevitable shortage of qualified workers.  Therefore, it has become crucial for builders to demonstrate their commitment to quality and excellence as they manage their trade and supplier relations,” says Chuck Shinn, Principal of Builder Partnerships. “Good, quality Trade Contractors have a choice of builders to work for.  They will choose the best, most organized homebuilders. The Builder of Choice™ award provides additional third party verification of the builder’s commitment to superior trade and supplier partnership.  Based on the results of the trade and supplier survey results, DanRic Homes is a ”Builder of Choice”.

To achieve the Builder of Choice™ award, builders needed to reach an average score on the trade contractor feedback surveys of at least 90% across 68 criteria that have been sub-divided into 10 categories.   Builders were evaluated on their trade and supplier relationships across all levels of their organization,   including:  overall organization, trade relations, management team commitment, project field management, job site management, office support, trust, communications, loyalty, and ethics.

A Builder of Choice™ award recipient runs a solid organization. These companies demonstrate that they are committed to creating and maintaining an environment which will allow trades and suppliers to accomplish their work efficiently and effectively. They have demonstrated that they are consistent, reliable, efficient and effective having instilled appropriate discipline in the building processes.

There are no rankings for this award. Builders either achieve the necessary criteria for the Builder of Choice™ award or they don’t.  It is not a relative ranking against other builders.  They either exceed the minimum performance measurement or they do not.

DanRic Homes has built a strong culture focused on excellence in trade and supplier partner management permeating the company. In addition, it has worked hard to build processes to allow the trade contractors and suppliers to function as a team supporting their efforts to maintain an efficient building operation with the ultimate beneficiary being the home buyer.

The Builder of Choice™ award differentiates itself from other recognitions in three key areas. First, it is an independent and cost-effective measurement that is available to all builders, not just those in certain markets or of a certain size.

Second, the award does not rank one builder against another but recognizes all builders who achieve a benchmark of excellence in trade contractor relations, which gives companies a truer measure of a company’s standards and quality.

Third, the builder is graded by the trade partners and suppliers who are working in the builder’s organization on a daily basis.  It is not granted by a third party team of judges reviewing a builder’s application.

About Builder Partnerships

Builder Partnerships is a member organization focused on providing management training and support to help builders improve their performance and profit.  Currently we represent approximately 550 builders in the United States and Canada who have projected about 75,000 homes built collectively this year.  With over 75 manufacturer and service providers associated with our group, Builder Partnerships also manages streamlined, competitive incentive programs and works to strengthen relationships between builders, manufacturers and other service providers in the industry. www.BuilderPartnerships.com
