Energy Saving Tips

The following will save you precious time and money on your energy costs:

  • Keep your system well maintained and tune up the equipment yearly-the better shape your system is in, the more efficiently it will run.
  • Get a programmable thermostat-with this, you can save energy when you are away from home by setting the thermostat to increase or decrease temperatures as you please.
  • Seal your heating and cooling ducts-the less air that escapes your home, the better!
  • Make sure doors and windows are shut and properly sealed as well.
  • Update old equipment with newer, more energy efficient models to lower energy costs.
  • Make sure your components meet the following minimums:
    Air conditioners: SEER ratings of 13 or higher.
    Furnaces: AFUE ratings of 80 or higher.
    Heat pumps: HSPF ratings of 7 or higher.
