With the warmer weather here already, I thought I would share some helpful, energy savings tips.  

When closing up your home for the summer time, here are some best practices from FP&L for A/C settings tips for seasonal, home owners.
 
If you have a manual thermostat
FPL recommends setting your air conditioning system to 80 degrees for detached homes and townhouses and 77 degrees for condos and apartments. These measures control the relative humidity (RH) in your vacant home by providing dehumidification to help prevent mold growth.
 
If you have a programmable thermostat
A programmable thermostat is a more energy-efficient and effective option. FPL recommends programming thermostats at 72 degrees for just two hours each morning before sunrise and at 88 degrees the rest of the time. This will help prevent mold by removing moisture from the air during the cooler hours, when relative humidity (RH) is highest and your A/C runs most efficiently.
Energy efficiency tips 
  • Always set the A/C fan switch to the "auto" mode.
  • Ceiling fans are not necessary since your A/C already circulates the air.
Mold prevention
The most energy-efficient option to help prevent mold from developing in vacant homes is to use stand-alone dehumidifiers instead of the air conditioner.
  • Use one dehumidifier for every 1,000 square feet of floor area.
  • Set the controls to 58 percent RH, and locate them by the kitchen sink or bathroom shower so water from the drainage tube can go down the drain.
  • Keep the doors to each room open to help the dry air mix with other air throughout the house. A floor fan set on low speed can help circulate dehumidified air to other rooms.
  • You can add timers to the dehumidifiers and fans to limit their operation to 9 pm until noon each day.
Other ways to save while you are away 
  1. Save more by turning off the circuit breakers to the water heater and refrigerator. Make sure the refrigerator is clean and you have a way to keep the door open while you are gone.
  2. Unplug electronics to save money and protect them from lightning strikes during the rainy season. Remember, if it feels warm to the touch when it is plugged in, then it is consuming energy -- even when you are not using it. 
  3. If you have cable or a satellite for your TV: When the TV is off, put your hand on the box that tunes the channels. If you feel any heat, keep it unplugged until you need it again when you return. 
I hope that you find these energy savings tips helpful.  I welcome the opportunity to be the expert resource for all of your real estate-related needs. Call or text me today at 561-373-9653.

LEGAL CORNER with ANDREW PINEIRO, Esq.
Cioffi Logo

Q:  In a real estate transaction, the buyer has      the ability to negotiate certain          "contingencies" into the contract.  If properly written, a contingency enables the parties to cancel a contract if certain conditions occur or do not occur.
 
A: A
 common contingency is the financing contingency ("FC") which allows the buyer to cancel for reasons related to being unable to obtain financing.  If the FC terms are not adhered to, a buyer can find themselves in a bad situation.  For example, a buyer obtains a Pre-Approval letter from his lender to present with the offer which states, "this Pre-Approval letter is not a loan commitment."  Once the offer is made and accepted, all intentions are for the lender to issue the commitment letter and the contract specifies a date by which this must happen.  If the loan commitment is not issued by that date, the buyer may cancel the contract utilizing the financing contingency with written notice to the seller, typically at least 7 days prior to closing.  The dilemma for buyers is if the issuance of the loan commitment is delayed past the deadline to give notice to the seller, the buyer will not be able to timely 
cancel the contract.  In this situation, the buyer would still be obligated to close or 
breach the contract by not closing and risk losing their earnest money deposit. 
 

A real estate lawyer can guide you through the intricacies of the financing 
contingency.  As a buyer, it is always prudent to hire a lawyer to represent you from contract to closing.
