One of the Most Important Things We Do Is Show You How to Conserve It
At Advanced Comfort Systems, one of the most important things we can do is demonstrate and encourage energy efficiency. With fluctuating energy prices and concern about the environment, many homeowners are looking for solutions and money-saving tips. We are proud to help with suggestions and new products.
If you’re purchasing new heating and cooling products, remember that properly sized equipment will lead to a more energy-efficient, comfortable home. We can help to determine the correct product size for your home’s needs, as well as perform all installation. Both steps are essential to getting the most from your new heating and cooling product. And don’t forget to buy ENERGY STAR qualified products—they’re up to 40 percent more efficient.
Another way our customers can conserve energy is to maintain their equipment regularly. An annual checkup will help keep equipment operating efficiently. It is also important to make sure your furnace filters and humidifier pads are in good condition. Dirty filters make a huge difference in air quality as well as the efficiency of your heating and cooling systems.
Another energy-savings option to consider is a programmable thermostat to raise and lower the temperature at pre-set times. Using a programmable thermostat is one of the easiest ways you can save energy, money, and help fight global warming. Recently, there have been a number of exciting advances in thermostat technology. Ask us about these new stats.
Upgrading your equipment, ductwork, or piping is the next step towards energy efficiency. Today’s furnaces and boilers can operate at or above 95% AFUE. If you use fuel oil, you may want to consider a switch to natural or LP gas. If you use LP gas and are thinking of replacing your air conditioner, you may want to consider hybrid heat with a new furnace and air source heat pump. We can discuss these options and products with you and help you make the decision that makes the most sense for you.
You can improve your home’s overall efficiency by upgrading your plumbing too. Check out our plumbing page for water-saving as well as gas-saving options.
