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.

A Whole-House Approach To Lowering Your Energy Costs

A Whole-House Approach To Lowering Your Energy CostsEnergy costs in northwest Arkansas can be high, especially if you haven’t made an effort to improve your home’s efficiency. The cost of heating during our cool winter weather and the cost of air conditioning during hot summers can be especially burdensome.

Simple Lifestyle Adjustments

Some bill-lowering strategies require only simple lifestyle adjustments, rather than more intensive home maintenance. Here are some easy things to do to lower your energy costs:

  • Take shorter showers.
  • Lower your heater’s thermostat settings during winter and wear warmer clothes to increase heating efficiency.
  • Only run your washing machine and dishwasher when they have full loads.
  • Turn down the heat or air conditioning before leaving the house.
  • Turn off lights before leaving a room.

Maintenance Adjustments

An inefficiently designed home uses much more energy than an efficient home. While some home improvements may cost money upfront, the costs are usually worth the long term energy savings. Here are some home adjustments to consider when you’re trying to lower your energy costs:
