Simple Steps to Reduce Your Family’s Impact on the Environment
Annual Heating and Air Conditioning Maintenance
Many people wait until something is wrong before they feel they can justify the cost of service and repairs. Problem is, by neglecting to regularly service your furnace and air conditioner, you will pay more in the long run. More in energy bills, more in preventive repairs, and face replacements sooner from reduced equipment life. And, you will most likely experience equipment failure in the middle of the summer or winter, items of heavy use when you need your systems the most.
Regular maintenance will also catch small issues before they become larger issues and may prevent total system failure. Also, when your equipment is serviced annually and running at an optimal level, you will have lower utility bills, which is good for the environment and your money!
Upgrade Old, Inefficient Appliances
Dishwashers, clothes washers, ovens, refrigerators, water heaters, air conditioners, furnaces, boilers, and other major appliances can run up energy costs quickly if they are not energy efficient or not running at peak performance. It is important to have your major appliances inspected regularly. If considering a renovation or upgrading, explore all options.
Fix Refrigerant Leaks
The longer you put off fixing the leak, the more that’s evaporating (not to mention the harm to the environment). Not only that, if moisture enters the reacts with the refrigerant, vital components like the compressor can be damaged and you may end up replacing your entire unit. Even if a total replacement is not required, the efficiency of your unit can be greatly compromised.
A ceiling fan can increase evaporation of perspiration from an individual and create the sensation of a cooler environment. Ceiling fans also cost much less to operate than your comfort system. This allows you to set the thermostat higher and still enjoy a comfortable environment. Be sure to turn the fan off when you leave the room.
