TURN YOUR HOME GREEN THIS ST. PATRICK’S DAY
Bringing the festive spirit home by working on your HVAC and Plumbing systems in time to work on that Spring Cleaning List and help your home become more energy efficient.
1. TURN YOUR HOME GREEN THIS ST. PATRICK’S DAY
Traditional water heaters are constantly running. However, tankless systems heat the water on demand and you will never run out of hot water.
2. FIX THE LEAKY FAUCETS
Small leaks can add up to a significant water wasted if left uncorrected. Can be as simple as a gasket change on a handle, clearing debris or a new faucet or shower head.
3. UPGRADE TO A SMART THERMOSTAT
With a smart thermostat, the heating and cooling system can be used the most efficient and not waste energy and money. There are a variety of settings to accommodate each lifestyle. Smart thermostats can save an average of 10% on heating costs and 15% cooling costs for residential properties.
4. INSTALL LOW-FLOW FIXTURES TO IMPROVE WATER USAGE
Older faucets use more water than the new, low-flow fixtures. Help upgrade the appearance of your kitchen or bathrooms with this update. Low-flow fixtures can reduce water usage as much as 60% over standard fixtures.
5. SCHEDULE A PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE CHECK ON YOUR HVAC SYSTEMS AND YOUR HOT WATER HEATER
A neglected system slowly loses its ability to keep your home comfortable and at the same level of efficiency it did when originally installed. Maintenance helps keep the systems working at their optimal and can prevent more costly repairs. These include inspecting and draining your hot water heater to check for corrosion and leaks, checking the anode rods, and sediment build up. HVAC maintenance can include filter checks, compressor, Freon leaks, and debris around the external unit.
