There’s nothing like enjoying your cool, comfortable home in the middle of a sweltering summer. Since 50% -70% of your energy expenditures can come from your heating and cooling system, there’s also nothing quite like the utility bill you’ll receive for that comfort if your system isn’t performing efficiently.
Before you rent a reindeer and purchase a summer home at the North Pole, you might want to check with your heating and cooling professional.
“There are a lot of reasons systems don’t perform at topnotch,” says Jim Altman of Four Seasons Air Conditioning & Heating Co. “Most of the time the problem can be fixed by something as simple as regular maintenance. Pre-season tune-ups prevent not only mid-season breakdowns that leave you and your family sweating – they also keep energy dollars in your pocket.”
But how much can you really save? Okay, all bets off – we peeked…
• Do you regularly adjust the thermostat seeking comfort?
• When you stand near an outside wall, do you feel drafts at your feet… or higher?
• Have you ever noticed condensation on your windows?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, having an energy survey conducted by a qualified heating and cooling professional can save you up to 40% on your energy bills this season.
Jim Altman told us, “Leaks in air ducts, dirt in the system – these things make your system work harder and less efficiently. A simple inspection can determine where and just how much energy you can save.”
These precautions are part of Four Seasons Air Conditioning & Heating Co effort to show homeowners certain energy-saving techniques that can lead to hundreds of wasted dollars each season.
