Saving Money with HVAC Maintenance

Posted by Shipley Energy Team on 7/29/15 4:30 PM

Sometimes it can be difficult to look beyond the “right now”. A similar feeling can take place in regards to our HVAC systems: if it seems to be working fine, we assume nothing is wrong with it. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?  

WRONG! The problem here is that A/C units can seem very temperamental, breaking down at the absolute worst time. However, there are preventative measures that you can take to ensure that you won’t lose air conditioning in 97 degree humidity. These measures can reduce unexpected breakdowns of your unit by 70%, and reduce overall energy consumption by 25%.

It’s hard to think about home heating during this period of humidity, but it is never too early to think about conversion of energy sources! When it comes to heating our homes this winter, we have a resource that is standing above the rest. Natural gas is emerging as a better option than heating oil and propane, yet it is still not being fully taken advantage of.  

The environment-friendly aspects of heating a home with natural gas are very enticing to home owners, but the cost drives some potential buyers away. But do the long-term benefits outweigh the short-term costs?
