We are taking the following precautions due to the COVID-19 virus. All of our technicians have masks, glasses, latex gloves and shoe booties if they have to enter your home. Our technicians also have hand sanitizer and disinfectants that they use after every call.

If we are there to do maintenance and we don’t have to come inside your home to get to the equipment, we are asking homeowners to adjust the thermostat for us so we can do the system maintenance without entering the home. We will not be shaking hands and will keep our distance from customers.

Anatomy Of An Energy Bill: Seeing Where You Can Save Once You Know Where Your Dollars Go

Anatomy Of An Energy Bill: Seeing Where You Can Save Once You Know Where Your Dollars GoEverybody wants to reduce their energy bill. But how can you lower your energy bill if you don’t know what’s driving the costs? Figure out what’s contributing to your high energy bill and then you can make a plan to reduce energy consumption to save money.

Heating and cooling costs take up the bulk of the typical energy bill. That’s actually a good thing for you, since there are many different ways to reduce the energy that your HVAC systems uses.

  • Invest in efficient HVAC systems to heat and cool your home (look for the Energy Star label). Consider a geothermal system, which is one of the most efficient systems.
  • Install adequate insulation, especially in unconditioned areas, such as the attic and basement.
  • Add a programmable thermostat to automatically reduce heating or cooling efforts during the nighttime.
  • Seal and insulate windows.
  • Install and use ceiling fans.

Also consider the little things in your home that consume electricity, such as vacuums, appliances that tell the time and charging laptops and cell phones.

  • Unplug all small appliances when not in use (coffee maker, etc.).
  • Unplug chargers when the item’s battery is full (cell phones, laptop).
  • Vacuum less often.

Water heaters also consumer a lot of energy.
