Luxury Home Feature #3 – Integrated Back Up Generator

If you have ever lost power for a couple of days at your home this is a great solution.

An integrated generator can be powered with natural gas which most homes already receive and can automatically come on only seconds after a power loss. A majority of your home appliances can be run simultaneously with a properly sized generator.

A great company to start with that provides these systems is Generac. They make a wide variety of products to fit every situation and have been around for over 50 years.

Luxury Home Feature #2 – Automated Bathroom Exhaust Fans

One way to prevent mold and mildew in your bathroom is to have a properly working exhaust fan to pull that moist air out of the room and send it outside. Manually controlling these fans via a switch can become a hassle.

You can purchase exhaust fans that will automatically come on when the humidity in the room reaches a certain point. These particular fans will stay on for 30 minutes or so after they are activated before automatically shutting off.

Another alternative is to install a timed/un-timed switch to control your exhaust fan. After hitting the timed switch the fan will turn off after a set period of time. Using the un-timed switch will of course stay on until you turn it off.
