Kitchen and Bathroom Remodeling in Newtown
Deciding to remodel your kitchen or bathroom is a big step! There are many components that go into a true remodel, and — as the remodeling specialists — we at McHale’s never want to rush that process. However, there are some considerations to be made in addition to the general discussions of style, fixture installations, and budget that most people immediately start to think of when they imagine remodeling. Of course, deciding what colors you want is hugely important, but don’t get swept away. We’ve compiled a list of extra considerations so that you don’t forget to include them in your plan.
3 Extra Considerations to Make When Remodeling
- Upgrading Your Fuel Sources– What would be the use in remodeling if you were still going to use outdated and inefficient means of heating your remodeled home? If you still have an oil powered heating system, use the remodel as an opportunity to upgrade to natural gas or propane. Gas furnace alternatives will save you money on your utility bills since that operates at 30% increased efficiency from oil. They’ll also reduce the size of your carbon footprint dramatically, and will forced-air you’ll be able to combine your heating and cooling into a single ventilation system, thereby avoiding the cost of extra ductwork.
- Restoring Your Electrical Panel– You probably won’t be surprised to know that your household uses a great deal more energy than ten years ago. After all, now everyone has a cellphone, a laptop, a tablet, etc. — plus, larger and higher-efficiency appliances require more modern circuitry. Take the remodel opportunity to make sure that your electrical panel is safe and not overloading by doing a restoration on its circuit breakers. This is to ensure that your new fixtures and appliances do not overload the amperage your home is capable of.
- Aging in Place Accommodations– What does “aging in place” mean? Essentially, aging in place bathrooms and kitchens are designed to suit the needs of an elderly or disabled member of the household. If you have someone living in your home who requires special care, you’ll need to remodel your living space to be aging in place for their safety.
