Is your air conditioner struggling to cool your home? According to Energy Star – a U.S Environmental Protection Agency voluntary program, most modern HVAC systems or air conditioners are built to last an average of 15 years, completely dependent on make & model, as well as your climate, how often you run the system, and how often your air conditioner is maintained.

Your air conditioner is something most of us take for granted, and never really give any consideration to until it breaks down & leaves us vulnerable to the elements. When this happens, you’ll rush to find an HVAC company to come to your home, and hope they provide a quick & easy fix. However, sometimes these “quick & easy fixes” can’t actually be completed easily, quickly, or even cheaply.

When this happens, you have a pretty big decision to make: repair or replace your existing air conditioner system? How can you know what the best decision is for you, your home, & your wallet?

Save Money With Smart Thermostats


Want to save money on your home heating and cooling?  Smart thermostats like the best-selling Nest make it easy by doing the programing for you.   Smart thermostats keep your home at a comfortable temperature when you are there, and prevent wasted fuel energy when you are away.

How are Smart Thermostats Different?

Old programmable thermostats require you to enter in the temperatures you want for different times of the day and different times of the week.  For different schedules or seasons, you have to reprogram.  Smart thermostats are different because you only need to set temperatures for a week or two and then the device learns what you want.  Smart thermostats can:

  • Learn the temperatures you want when you wake up and go to sleep.
  • Change the temperature for different days of the week.
  • Know when you are gone and adjust the temperature accordingly.
  • Adjust to the change of seasons.
  • Be viewed and adjusted remotely through a smart phone app.

How Smart Thermostats like Nest Save Money
