A note from the SBAOR President

Your Handyman By Mark Baird

By Bob Walsmith, Jr. President of the Santa Barbara Association of REALTORS®

Drought-Tolerant Plants & Creative Tips for a Less-Thirsty Yard Although living here in Santa Barbara is paradise, we do have a growing issue of a lack of water. With that lack of water, comes the problem of trying to maintain our beautiful yards with beautiful landscapes. However, if you follow the tips below, you could still have a fantastic yard and not worry about wasting water. Drought happens everywhere, not just in arid climates like Arizona. So, how do you get to have a beautiful, lush, lowmaintenance yards that doesn’t need watering when the temps keep rising with no rain in sight? Take a cue from homeowners in those arid climates. They know how to survive heat waves. And they’re experts on drought-resistant plants. You’d be surprised how well some of those low-water plants work in less dry conditions. Here’s how to have a yard you need to water less. Plant Hardy, Drought-Tolerant Plants Cacti and succulents — the camels of the plant world — are synonymous with Southwest gardening but turn out to be pretty hardy elsewhere as well. They can add color, flowers, and texture to lawns, while being super drought-friendly. Seek Native Plants In the West and Southwest, despite the lack of natural water, yards are still full of color and texture. Each region has its own native or “adapted plants.” People waste water; plants do not. Plants are adapted to protect the water they have. Native plants thrive because they are used to the natural state of the region. Add Some Hardscaping OK, running barefoot on the lawn is nice, but what about the romantic evening around the fire pit, eating with family and friends in the outdoor kitchen, or soaking up rays on a patio lounge chair? More hardscapes — stone walls, gravel paths, paved patios — mean less area that needs to be watered. And (bonus!), according to the “Remodeling Impact Report: Outdoor Features” from the National Association of REALTORS®, new patios, outdoor fireplace, and fire pits are among the top-10 projects for appealing to home buyers and adding value for resale. On average, expect to pay between $1,500 to $20,000 (or a national average of $3,000) for an outdoor fireplace. But make sure hardscape areas drain into the right places. Be careful you don’t

create saturated areas where plants can’t grow. You may have to call in a professional to make sure hardscape and the adjacent landscape have proper drainage, either by the way the land is sloped or by installing drains in the ground. Many horticulturists recommend limiting and taking special care with hardscape. Water that runs off of hardscape carries oils and toxins into the water supply, so permeable materials are a good choice. They advise using lighter material colors that will reduce heat absorption and radiation. In addition, they caution about possible harm to tree roots, which are usually in the top foot of soil. When homeowners add walkways or other hardscape features and heavy equipment is used, the process can compact soil and cut roots, making the tree vulnerable to storm damage. Try the Newest Generation of Fake Grass It’s come a long way in how it looks. Many brands look and feel like natural grass. Research turf products that hold up well, look good over time, and have a good feel on your bare feet. Then find a contractor who knows how to install synthetic turf properly. What’s underneath it matters. There needs to be a deep sub-base that’ll last like a concrete patio but allow natural water through. Replace Plants With (Surprise!) a Water Feature While that may seem counterintuitive, it makes sense when you think about it. Especially when you consider the newest generation of water features: the pondless water feature. It’s essentially a waterfall with a belowground reservoir covered by rock or stone. The water circulates . . . so it isn’t evaporating. If you want to stay completely away from water, you can get a water feature look without the water by designing a dry creek bed with stones that can provide an aesthetic look and be functional in spots where there might otherwise be plants, and the need to irrigate. Between the drought-tolerant plants and the hardscaping, you may hardly ever water again. As always, it is a good idea to contact your local trusted Realtor® for suggestions regarding contractors, etc. for great drought tolerant ideas.

Cooling Off a Hot Attic Question: Our house often gets very hot towards the end of a spring or summer day, and I have heard that an attic fan is an inexpensive way to cool off a house. Our house is a 50+ year old tract home in Goleta. Can you tell me what types of attic fans are available? Your HandYMan: An attic fan can be an inexpensive way to help cool off your home in the summer that is not very hard at all to install. The air in your attic can rise to well over 120 degrees on a sunny day trapping heat inside the living areas of your home that is unable to radiate up into the attic until it cools off, which in the summer may not be until the early hours of the morning. There are basically two types of attic fans; one type that blows air out of the attic through a vent in the roof and another that vents out through a gable vent. A house with a gable style roof has exterior walls at the ends of the house that go up to the ridge of the roof like a triangle, and a rectangular louvered vent is usually located on the wall near the top of the triangle. A house with a hip style roof has a roof that sort of sits on top of the house like a pyramid shaped cap and does not have any gables. It is usually best to minimize the number of vents that are perforating your roof and if you have gable vents then it is best to have an attic fan at the gable vent. Likewise, if you have a hip roof you will need to have the fan vent through the roof. Most gable vents are approximately 12” wide by 18” high and a 12” diameter box fan can be fastened to the attic side of the vent ideally that is located on the side of the house that gets the afternoon sun. The box fan can be purchased with a thermostat so it can be set to turn on when the temperature in the attic climbs over 100 degrees or so, hot air is pushed out on the hot side of the house, and cool air is drawn in via the gable vent(s) that is on the other side of the attic which is the cool side. Box fans are available at most hardware stores or can be purchased online at a dis-

tributor like Grainger. On summer days the fan will probably turn on in the mid afternoon and then run for a few hours after dark before your attic is cooled off. The electrical supply for the fan should be controlled by a wall switch that is easily accessible near the attic access opening so the fan can be turned off when you are not going to be at home or during the winter. If your house does not have gable vents, then you can purchase a fan unit that is designed to be installed on the attic side of the roof with a vent that pushes air up and out through the roof. This vent needs to be installed by a roofing contractor so that it is water sealed correctly and it is important that the fan unit is well made so it will not fall apart or start rusting. I have seen solar powered roof fan units advertised for sale, but I would first research how long the battery charge will keep the fan running after sunset and what type of warranty is offered by the manufacturer. Any vent that is installed in your roof should be of adequate quality to survive the life of the roof which can be as long as 35-40 years for better quality roofs. If your home is located in a Wildfire Zone then it is a code violation to have any sort of attic or roof fan that might cause a burning ember to be drawn into your attic. You may also want to consider getting a quote from an insulation contractor to have a new layer of insulation laid down in your attic in addition to the attic fan, which will also help to keep the home warmer in the winter months and cooler in the summer. A large deciduous shade tree planted strategically in the yard so that it shades the roof in the summer goes a very long way to helping cool off a house without using any electricity. Also consider a lighter colored roof when you eventually have your old roof replaced. A darker colored roof absorbs heat, and you may have noticed when traveling in an airplane that most all the roofs on commercial buildings and warehouses are white in order to reduce air conditioning costs.

A new way to look at wood furniture By Katie Laughridge

Painted wood furniture is everywhere you look Photo courtesy Handout/TNS

Have you ever heard the saying, “you either love it or hate it, there is no in between”? People usually use the phrase when talking about something unconventional or controversial they adore (or loathe). While I believe things are rarely black and white (we all know I need more shades than that), I know I’ve used this “warning” while trying to get my friends and family to try out some of my favorite things, for example, the humble circus peanut candies (if you know, you know). It is a way to acknowledge that a taste or trend is not for everyone, and that passion is expected and even welcomed. Life would be boring if we all loved the same things! Wood furniture is something that can be surprisingly controversial when it comes to home decorating. There are the purists who adhere to traditional wood stains to

bring out the natural beauty of walnut, pine and cherry wood pieces, and there are those who bend the rules of tradition by exploring with color. While we certainly love both, and I have a mix of the two in my home, today we’re celebrating beloved painted pieces. They are a great way to refresh and rejuvenate your home and of course, add a pop of color. Painted wood furniture is everywhere you look! For those easing into the trend, gray, white and even shades of blue are perfect for beginning your collection. The shades play nicely with natural wood finishes and upholstery alike for a touch of brightness wherever you might want it. This allows for a mix of old and new styles that create a breathtaking display in any home. A simple color means you can also play around with different textures as well, whether that be a colored stain or a fully lacquered look, without overwhelming your space. You’ll find a bold statement on the other side of the color spectrum. Perfect for kids’ rooms and avant-garde decor spaces alike are the pinks, reds and greens of the world. Manufacturers have drastically expanded the range of colors and shades of wood finishes they carry. What do you think about the painted furniture trend? Are you team love it, team hate it, or perhaps you’re one of the elusive in-betweeners? There is no right or wrong when it comes to decorating your home, and that’s the best thing about finding your own style. Adapted from nellhills.com.

Real Estate Q&A:

Is it a good idea to share title with my son?

Ask Angi:

How can I pet-proof my home? By Paul F. P. Pogue

By Gary M. Singer

Well-maintained pet doors play an important role in keeping your pets safe around your home.

It is not a good idea to owe money on a home you cannot control without the consent of another owner who is not legally required to repay the loan.

Question: What are the pitfalls for a 72-year-old mother using her credit to buy a house in a different state for her 35-year-old son? My name would be on the title along with my son, but he would make the down payment and pay the lender every month. After a year, how would I remove my name? – Peggy

Answer:

Whether you would be the only borrower on the loan or if you would co-sign a loan with your son, you would have to make the payments if your son does not. It is not a good idea to owe money on a home you cannot control without the consent of another owner who is not legally required to repay the loan. Anytime you co-own property with someone you are not married to, you should have a written joint ownership agreement. This contract dictates what happens in various scenarios, such as if only one of you wants to sell or if one owner does not pay their share of the expense. This agreement is even more important if not all the owners are borrowers on the mortgage loan. When I bring this topic up, I am often met with resistance, being told that a beloved family member would never do anything like that. Unfortunately, this is not the case, and any lawyer can tell you that disputes between family members are common and often brutal. Preparing a written agreement can help avoid a misunderstanding later. Even if both parties have the best intentions, the everyday magic of putting pen to paper will help prevent misunderstandings. When applying for any loan, it is illegal to misrepresent facts or intentions to the prospective lender. This means you must inform the lender you will not be living in the home, which may cause your interest rate to be higher than if the loan was for residence. Most mortgage loans have a “due on clause” requiring the loan to be repaid if the borrower deeds the property to someone else. If you go forward with your plan, have your son refinance the mortgage before taking yourself off the title. Gary M. Singer is a Florida attorney and board-certified as an expert in real estate law by the Florida Bar. He practices real estate, business litigation and contract law from his office in Sunrise, Fla. He is the chairman of the Real Estate Section of the Broward County Bar Association and is a co-host of the weekly radio show Legal News and Review. He frequently consults on general real estate matters and trends in Florida with various companies across the nation.

Pets are more than a hobby; they’re part of your family. And since the majority of homes in the United States have at least one pet, according to the U.S. Census, it’s a good idea to plan around them as well as you plan for your family’s needs. Whether you’re looking to secure your home for current four-legged residents or you’re about to welcome a new furry family member for the first time, here are some tips to keep your pets safe and happy in your house. First things first: Pets involve a lot of extra stuff, so have a plan for that early on. You’ll save a lot of time if you’re not scurrying around when Fluffy is meowing for treats right away. “When you bring a new pet into your home, you’re going to want to think of new storage solutions to make sure you have space for all of their supplies,” says Angi Home Interior Expert Rachel Zepernick. “That can include a designated area to store all their toys, or if the pet is a dog, you may want to install a hook by the front door for easy access to a leash. For kibble and treats, consider buying airtight containers that can keep the food fresher for longer, keep pests at bay and prevent unwanted smells from your home.” Go through your house and try to think from the perspective of a cat or dog. What are the breakable items they might knock over? What about potentially harmful household materials, such as laundry detergent or cleaning solutions? Keep cords and medications well out of their reach as well. Make sure your household emergency kit has everything you’ll need to care for pets for at least three days, including food and water and whatever specific medications they need. Once your pet has settled in, keep cleaning in mind. “Just like other members of your family, your pet is going to bring more mess into your home, so start thinking about ways to make it easier to clean and maintain the home,” Zepernick says. “One way, for example, would be to switch to luxury vinyl flooring. These floors are scratch-resistant, they’re long-lasting, and they’re super easy to maintain.” Pets can be expert escape artists when sneaking out of the house. The best way to stop any would-be fugitive fur babies is to remove the desire in the first place, so you may want to consider having them spayed or neutered. This removes their instinct to search for potential mates. Make sure all doors, including patio entrances and pet doors, close securely and properly. Don’t overlook the outdoors, either. Ensure your gate is secure and that a dog can’t dig under the fence. Despite your best efforts, your furry escape artist may still make it out of the door or yard. Put identification and your contact information on a collar, and consider microchipping them so shelters can quickly identify them. Don’t forget to give them someplace to go. Cats, dogs and other pets are naturally curious creatures who want to explore. Since you’re forbidding them to get into the big wide world that so excites them, make sure they have fun, interesting places to explore in their house or yard.

HOA Homefront • Reader Questions

SOLAR ENERGY By Kelly G. Richardson, Esq. CCAL

Banning Solar Installations in Our HOA? Can a HOA prevent us from placing solar panels on the roof of our townhome? We are in an older condominium association and the roofs are hard, flat shingles that were just replaced. If we agree to be responsible for the repairs needed due to our solar panels (not the ultimate roof replacement in another X years or whatever), do we have the right to place solar panels on the roof above our townhome? – Looking forward to your answer, M.F. Dear Kelly: Can my HOA deny me from installing solar panels on my roof? – M.H. Dear Mr. Richardson: I submitted a formal application to my HOA Architectural committee for the installation of solar panels on my roof, believing that the Civil Code section 714 is quite clear that my application can be “reasonably” restricted but not denied. I have since heard that the HOA lawyer advised the Board that they could, in fact, deny my application if they were to come up with “3 good reasons.” Does this sound plausible to you? Where exactly is the law on rooftop solar in common interest developments? – Best, R.O. Dear M.F., M.H., and R.O.: California’s strong preference for solar energy installations is reflected in three Civil Code statutes, Sections 714, 714.1, and 4746. Section 714 prohibits governing documents from banning solar installations but allows the imposition of “reasonable” restrictions. However, the term “reasonable” persubparts (b) and (d)(1)(A) means restrictions which do not decrease the system’s efficiency by more than 10% or increase its cost by 10% or $1,000 (whichever is less). Furthermore, Civil Code Section 714.1(b)(1) prohibits HOAs from prohibiting installations on the roof of one’s home, carport, or garage. This means that, even though a townhouse condominium roof is normally common area and not individually owned by the unit owner, the HOA cannot completely ban solar installations on those common area roofs. The statutes specially allow certain requirements, which are listed at 714(c) and 714.1(a). The installation must meet all applicable codes, the homeowner can be required to indemnify the HOA from any loss or damage arising from the system and to maintain, replace, or repair the roofs under the system. Section 4746 also allows the HOA to require that the installer be properly licensed and for the homeowner to keep insurance in force if the installation is on a shared roof. Solar system applications are required by Section 714(e) to be handled like any

other architectural application and are automatically deemed approved if the HOA has not approved or denied the application within 45 days (absent any reasonable but unresolved questions from the HOA). HOAs need to exercise caution regarding solar system applications. HOAs found willfully violating this statute can be ordered to pay a civil penalty of up to $1,000, and the prevailing party will be awarded their legal costs. So, R.O., I disagree with your HOA lawyer’s (reported) comment that the HOA only must come up with “3 good reasons” to deny a solar installation. The allowable reasons are right in the statutes, and if they aren’t listed, they are suspect at best. – Thanks for your questions. Best regards, Kelly

Have a Policy Regarding Solar Energy Installations As the cost of energy escalates seemingly weekly, an increasing number of HOA homeowners want to install photo voltaic systems on roofs. Here are some key considerations for boards to consider. Is the HOA prepared? Reasonable rules regarding solar installations will help both homeowners and the HOA. Such rules must be carefully crafted to ensure compliance with Civil Code Sections 714, 714.1, and 4746. Such rules should address issues including: Time limits. Under Civil Code Section 714(e)(2)(b) if the application is not approved or denied within 45 days (assuming there are no pending unanswered questions), the installation is DEEMED APPROVED. Have the time limits in the rules. Code compliance. Civil Code Section 714(c) allows HOA rules to require compliance with health and safety and electrical codes. Roof repair. The HOA may require that the applicant pay for roof component damage from the installation and ongoing use of the system, per Civil Code Section 714.1(a). This may also include the extra cost of removing the system when the roof needs maintenance or replacement. Common area roofs. If the installation is in a condominium, in which the roof is normally common area owned in common by all owners, Civil Code Section 4746 allows applicants to be required to submit a “solar site survey” plan and to notify other owners in the same building. The solar site survey plan will be quite simple if the system is only to be installed on a roof or carport serving a single residence, but a multi-story apartment-style condominium building will need a more sophisticated plan showing that the applicant is proposing only to use their fair share of the usable space on the shared common roof. Recordable agreement. HOAs under Civil Code Section 4746(b) can require

that subsequent owners of the applicant’s unit be notified of the ongoing obligations regarding the system installed on a common area roof. This is normally accomplished by a written agreement stating the required conditions that is filed with the County Registrar/Recorder (“recorded”) on the unit in question. This will also automatically notify later unit owners that they are bound by the agreement. Insurance. If the system is to be installed on a common area roof, the HOA can require proof of insurance (Civil Code Section 4746(a)(2)), which is annually updated to the HOA. Leasing. Some companies offer to install solar systems under a lease. The installation of a leased system on common area roofs can create huge problems for the HOA and for subsequent unit owners. The leasing company is not subject to the governing documents since it is not a member. After installing its system, leasing companies often sell the lease to finance companies. If the unit sells, the leasing company must consent to the new lessee. The seller could be liable for the cost of the lease if the buyer does not assume that liability. There is nothing in the applicable statutes that requires the HOA permit leased systems to be installed upon common area roofs. The potential problems for the HOA and the future owners can be prevented by not permitting leased equipment to be installed upon common area roofs. Solar energy generation is the present, not the future. Be prepared with reasonable written policies.

Solar Installations I live in a planned development, and was told we could not install solar because it would void our roof warranties. Can our management company ban installation of solar because of that reason or do the new regulations override that argument? – Thank you, D.D. Dear D.D.: Civil Code Sections 714 and 714.1 do not provide for HOAs to ban solar installations because they allegedly void roof warranties. However, keep in mind that the HOA can hold you responsible for damage to the roof. So, the HOA cannot reject your solar installation request because of the roof warranty, but it may hold you responsible for damage to the roof. Also, management doesn’t make decisions, they carry out board decisions. – Best regards, Kelly. Hi, Kelly. I applied for installation of a solar system. My HOA requires installation of pigeon deterrents or critter guards, at a cost of well over $1,000 extra. We think that “pigeon deterrent” should be at owner’s option and cost and the HOA shouldn’t make it compulsory for approval. Please advise when the installation of pigeon deterrent

becomes a condition for solar installation. What kind of procedure does the HOA follow to set it as a condition for solar installation? – J.M. Dear J.M.: Per Civil Code Section 714(d)(1)(B), an association cannot impose a requirement which adds more than $1,000 cost to the system. However, the HOA can hold you responsible for damage to the roof if the installation allows pigeons or other animals to damage the roof, per Civil Code Section 714.1(a)(4). Even though the HOA cannot force you to have the guards, if it prevents damage to the roof (which damage will likely be your responsibility), it might be a good idea to include it anyway. – Sincerely, Kelly Dear Mr. Richardson: As per CC&Rs, we do not own our own roofs in our complex. Does the law force us to allow solar installation? – R.T. Dear R.T.: Civil Code Section 4746 provides guidance regarding installation of common area roofs. The HOA cannot deny solar installations because they would be on common area roofs, but homeowners can be required to procure and submit a “solar site survey” documenting that the installation will only use a fair share of the useable roof area. In townhouse-style condominiums the roofs are usually common area but the area fairly allocable to the owner is clear — the roof above their own residence. In an apartment-style building, in which condominium units are stacked in multiple stories, the available roof space is more scarce. In that configuration the solar site survey may reveal that the requesting party’s fair share of the roof is too small for a meaningful amount of solar panels to be installed. So, as a technical matter, yes, the law forces HOAs to allow solar installations, subject to important conditions, but as a practical matter it is more likely that apartment-style condominium projects the unit owners will not find it as valuable. Given that townhouse condominium owners can use the area over their home as their “fair share” of the common area roofs, it is more likely that the HOA will be forced to allow solar installations on townhouses. – Thanks, Kelly

HOA leaders: Let’s find ways to make solar installations work, rather than ways to avoid them

Plumber:

Restaurant-inspired fixtures for busy home chef By Ed Del Grande Question: Hi Ed: I have a big extended family and I love to feed them my meals at holiday gatherings. I cook so much we plan a custom kitchen remodel and I’m looking for plumbing fixture suggestions for filling and washing very large pots, any ideas? – Tina

Answer:

Semipro kitchen faucets operate and look like faucets you might find in a restaurant kitchen. They are tall, flexible gooseneck-style faucets with a spring for support to help fill and wash larger pots and pans. Photos courtesy Kohler/TNS

Since you are planning a kitchen remodel, the good news is you should have a clean slate to work with. With that said, I do have some suggestions geared towards filling and washing large pots. For pot filling, instead of filling a pot with water at the kitchen sink and then moving it to the stove, you can have a pot filler faucet installed at the stove area. Wall- or deck-mounted pot fillers are tall cold water faucet spouts that swing out over the pot so it can be easily filled on the stovetop. Next, for washing large pots, I do have two types of faucets to suggest. Since you do cook like a semipro chef, I recommend a semipro kitchen faucet. Semipro kitchen faucets operate and look like faucets you might find in a restaurant kitchen. They are tall, flexible gooseneck-style faucets with a spring for support to help fill and wash larger pots and pans. If you’re looking for another style, the second faucet idea I have is a wallmounted bridge-style kitchen faucet. This is a high-arch faucet that mounts up on the wall over the sink, giving you extra clearance for larger items. Final tip: If you’re looking to fill and wash large pots in your new residential kitchen, you can cook up some nice ideas by simply visiting a local commercial kitchen.

How to turn your house into an Airbnb hotspot By Hunter Boyce As the housing market continues to soar, many homeowners are looking for ways to make the most out of their properties. Turning your home into an Airbnb can be a good way to make some extra money. But, there are some important pointers to follow before opening your home to patrons. Symon He, co-owner of LearnAirbnb, told CNBC that you will first need to do some research. “Many aspiring hosts do not understand that the earning potential for their property is largely determined by their location and the existing demand for Airbnb travel,” they said. The research boils down to two different categories: legality and demand. Find out what your local government requires Some state and local laws are friendlier to Airbnb than others. In some places, for instance, you may need to take a trip to your local city hall to fill out necessary paperwork before renting out your pad. Consult a superhost to determine what your local area’s demand and common obstacles for hosting are. Airbnb superhosts are experts with exceptional experience and talent. To help new hosts, Airbnb offers a service that allows interested parties to contact local superhosts to ask questions and receive guidance. Make your listing stand out Once you’ve done your research, it’s time to spruce up your pad. Here are a number of ways to make your home an Airbnb hotspot. • Spruce up your living space with new furniture and appliances to make your pad more competitive with other Airbnb hosts. Renters want to experience luxury during their stay, which can mean anything from an assortment of potted plants to state-of-the-art kitchenware. • Take the time to snap some show-stopping photos for your Airbnb profile. Consider hiring a professional photographer to make sure you get the right pics, because visual representation is important for your hosting profile online.

• Write a rock-solid listing for your Airbnb. From HDTVs to complimentary streaming services, identify a target audience for your listing and grab their attention by advertising all of your home’s amenities. Consider who would want to visit your home and why, then cater your description to that audience. • Amenities are a standard for Airbnb rentals, so make sure to stock up on toilet paper, body soap, towels and more. The more amenities you can offer, the more competitive your listing will become. • Clean is king. Always ensure that your short-term renters are walking into a spotless home. It sounds obvious, but makes a huge impact on the renting experience. Distributed by Tribune Content Agency, LLC.

Energy bills are high and not coming down soon. Here are ways to cut costs.

By Andrew Maykuth If you haven’t examined your monthly utility bill lately, brace for a shock when the cost of air-conditioning comes due in the next few weeks. If the AC bill doesn’t raise your pulse, your heating tab next January might, assuming that global energy markets remain unsettled. According to the most recent Consumer Price Index data, energy prices rose 41.6% in the last year, the largest 12-month increase since April 1980. Energy led all other categories: The price of fuel oils is up 70%; piped gas is up 38%; and electricity is up 14%.

What can the average consumer do to rein in the costs? You can adjust the thermostat up in the summer (or dial it down in the winter). Draw the shades on hot days. Buy a box fan to keep the air moving. Put on a sweater in the winter. Convert to low-wattage LED lighting. The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy provides a step-bystep guide, including many suggestions for changes in behavior that require no commitment of money. Or you can make some serious moves to improve your home’s energy efficiency. The cost of the upgrades could return dividends more quickly now that energy prices are higher.

tify the work as cost-effective, say the best way to reduce energy costs is to reduce the leakage of air from inside a home by adding insulation and by filling cracks — otherwise known as sealing a home’s thermal envelope. [Editor’s note: Having your home properly air sealed is critical to your energy conservation efforts and greatly impacts your utility bills. Some say that it’s more important than insulation.] Insulation and weather stripping are super boring khaki-pants kind of stuff that don’t give you many bragging rights in the neighborhood, such as a new electric vehicle might. But there is a quiet satisfaction in knowing your crawl space is airtight with new foam insulation.

Don’t wait for the weather to change Energy experts say consumers were just beginning to catch on to the idea of upgrading their homes when big heating bills started to land last winter. “But then the weather turns nice, and we forget about energy efficiency until later,” said George Mullikin, the program manager for CleaResult, which conducts energy audits for Peco Energy customers. “So there’s definitely a seasonal aspect that drives it.”

Buy high-efficiency systems If your current air-conditioning or heating system is old and inefficient, it may also be worth the expense of replacing the system with newer high-efficiency models.

Get an energy audit Before you launch an energy-efficiency project, get a professional energy assessment of your house. Most utilities will offer discounted assessments from a certified auditor. A walk-through energy assessment will set forth a plan of attack: It will recommend areas that need insulation, such as in the attic or crawl space, weather stripping and sealing opportunities, and lighting, appliances or heating and ventilation systems that are in need of repair or replacement. Seal up that thermal envelope Experts who do weatherization work on behalf of utilities and publicly funded programs, who need to jus-

Help paying repair bills Most utilities offer rebates to support the cost of new energy-efficient appliances or heating systems. The money is often paid by ratepayers, as part of government energy conservation mandates. Low-income customers have an additional menu of options available through organizations such as the Energy Coordinating Agency. The U.S. Department of Energy Weatherization Assistance Program, which is for low-income families. The U.S. Department of Energy also recently announced more than $40 million in federal funding to help deliver home energy retrofits to low-income and underserved households. What about the windows? Often the first thing that consumers ask about is a window replacement. Everybody has heard the radio ads, promising big energy savings with new windows.

SANTA BARBARA NEWS-PRESS REAL ESTATE

[Editor’s note: From the Department of Energy — If your windows are in good condition, taking steps to improve their efficiency may be the most cost-effective option to increase the comfort of your home and save money on energy costs. There are several things you can do to improve the efficiency of your existing windows: • Check existing windows for air leaks • Caulk and weatherstrip. Check out our do-it-yourself project to learn how to weatherstrip double-hung windows. • Add energy efficient window coverings. Learn more about your window covering options. • Add storm windows or panels • Add solar control film • Add exterior shading, such as awnings, exterior blinds, or overhangs. With any efficiency improvements, take steps to ensure proper installation and check for air leaks again after making the improvement.”] For more information The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy provides a step-bystep guide on energy programs. A good starting point is to reach out to your energy utility, which will provide an array of products and services for free or at a discount. Most of them will help arrange an energy assessment or audit, which will give a homeowner a cost-effective roadmap for reducing energy.

On Gardening:

The color white and the moonlit garden is enchanting, magical and full of memories

No shrub offers more fragrance and beauty than the summersweet or clethra, varieties with names like Vanilla Spice and Sugartina Crystalina say it all, promising memories for your children. Photos courtesy Norman Winter/TNS

By Norman Winter Each year as my color design guru son James orders plants for use at his clients’ homes, from those that look like historic cottages to palatial garden estates, those on the waterfront to those considered mountainous. The one color I can guarantee will be in heavy use is white. When spring arrives every year with all of its glorious purples, pinks, yellows and reds, the color guaranteed to catch your eye every time is white. (Of course, a scientist would most likely say white is not a color; it absorbs no other color or wavelength and is pure.) Pure and unspoiled goes in hand with the bride wearing a white dress, or the nurse wearing a white uni-

E20

form. It’s like the morning you wake and see the pure white snow on the ground that hasn’t been violated in any way. Mother Nature does this in the spring forest. The dogwoods seem to glow with their blooms, attracting our attention to the glistening, reflective bracts in an otherwise simple scene of green. White flowers say planning and precision White flowers like this year’s new Soprano impatiens not only give definition to shadier areas of the landscape, but also offer a sense of cleanliness and purity. They also give a feeling of planning and precision. In other words, the gardener knew what they were do-

SANTA BARBARA NEWS-PRESS REAL ESTATE

ing by carefully planting white. When possible, use white bedding plants like Supertunia Vista Silverberry, Supertunia Vista Snowdrift or Supertunia Mini Vista White at the front of the border, along sidewalks or trails to define where the walkway begins. This makes the nighttime stroll in the garden come alive. Out in the landscape proper the hydrangeas rule like royalty whether they are varieties of the native Oakleaf (Hydrangea quercifolia), the native smooth hydrangea (Hydrangea arborescens) or the pee gees (Hydrangea paniculata). Could there be a reason they named it Limelight?

SUNDAY, AUGUST 14, 2022


This time of the year landscapes all across the county are showing out with Hydrangea paniculata varieties like Limelight and this new Limelight Prime that offers showy visibility all day and night.

Use white flowers along the edge, border, or pathway to allow its reflective capacities to give definition at night. Here Diamond Snow euphorbia is used along the outside border with red begonias.

Give a vertical dimension with climbers and tumblers White is the last color to disappear as the sun sets in the evening. If it is a moonlit night, white flowers they will reflect the light all night. Use flowering vines like the Proven Winners new Thunbergia, Coconut A-Peel, or the topical Bombshell White mandevilla to add nighttime interest, as they give a vertical element by climbing Victorian-style tower or trellis. This year’s new Fairytrail Bride, the first cascading hydrangea, can turn an urn into a living piece of statuary in the moonlit garden. While The Garden Guy loves hot orange, red and salmon, if you walked onto my patio tonight, you would see the Superbena Whiteout verbenas

tumbling over the rims of containers and cascading over the rock wall in the distance. This is a verbena for all time, offering vigor and large flowers glistening in the moonlight. Making the moonlit garden magical The moonlit garden can be magical with the addition of shrubs with white fragrant flowers. This will be the place where childhood memories are made. Memories of mom and dad, and how life was back then. Proven Winners has introduced the Illuminati series of fragrant Mock Oranges, which will have three varieties with the addition of the new Illuminati Sparks in 2023. Then there are the native Clethra or summersweet, like Vanilla Spice and

Sugartina Crystalina, that by the mere mention of their name signals olfactory experience. The shrub that everyone has been talking about, however, is Fizzy Mizzy, a compact fragrant native Virginia sweetspire making its debut this year. The moonlit garden is enchanting, and it just takes a little planning. The prerequisite is the color white. Every aspect of the landscape can have white included. Here’s hoping you will give it a try. Norman Winter, horticulturist, garden speaker and author of “Tough-as-Nails Flowers for the South” and “Captivating Combinations: Color and Style in the Garden.” Follow him on Facebook @NormanWinterTheGardenGuy. ©2022 Tribune Content Agency, LLC

Varieties of native Virginia Sweetspire like Little Henry, Scentlandia and this year’s new Fizzy Mizzy not only offer white during the day and the night but an incredible fragrance that all will remember.

In the landscape hydrangeas rule like royalty varieties of native oakleaf like Gatsby Gal, Gatsby Moon and are always guaranteed to catch your attention even on a moonlit night. SANTA BARBARA NEWS-PRESS REAL ESTATE
