Your house might cost $700 to keep cold while a similar house next door will cost half that. This post will help you make your house a low-cost energy leader in your neighbourhood. Our concentration is on slashing cooling costs; however, most of the following tips will save you cash on heating, as well.

 

Replace Your Old Air Conditioner 

Replacing a 10-year-old central or window air conditioning unit with an Energy Star unit may slash your cooling expenses by 30 – 50% and save you enough over your new model’s lifetime to offset its investment price.

 

Switch To Compact Fluorescent Lamps

Standard incandescent bulbs will give off more heat than compact fluorescent lamps.

You already know that CFL’s slash lighting expenses; however, they slash cooling expenses, as well. That is because, unlike incandescents, they’ll give off little heat. Around 90% of the electricity utilized by an incandescent bulb is converted to heat instead of light. That additional heat means additional cooling costs.

 

Install A Programmable Thermostat

It’s one other easy upgrade that quickly pays back. Setting the cooling system 4℉ – 6℉ warmer when you are away on vacation or at work and automatically reducing it to 78℉ when you are home may cut 5 – 20% off your utility bill.

 

Change or Clean Air Conditioner Filters Once A Month

The main cause of AC breakdowns are dirty air filters and they cost around 7% more in energy expenses in warm climates. During the summer change central air conditioner furnace filters once a month. The majority of window units feature a removable filter behind their air inlet grille which you may remove and rinse every month.

 

Fix Leaks in Air Conditioner Ducting

If your house was constructed in the last ten years or so, it likely has well-sealed ductwork. However, if you reside in an older house, 10 – 40% of your cooling spend is lost through gaps inside the duct joints. This cold air is wasted as the ducts run through a basement, crawl space, or attic. It may be a difficult do-it-yourself job to do effectively because it takes a pro to test for leaks after and before the repairs. If you are game for sealing the ducts on your own, assess your ductwork for splits, cracks, or bad connections and feel for any escaping air as the system is on. After sealing all leaks, keep the ducts cold by insulating them using R-6 or greater fibreglass duct wrap if they run through a warm attic.

 

Block The Sun Out Using Window Shades

Around 30% of unwanted heat will come through the windows. Putting tinted window film, insulating curtains, or shades on west- and south-facing windows may save you up to 7%, or $45 per year on cooling expenses. The blend of trees and shades may reduce indoor temperatures by 20℉ on a warm day. Insulating curtains save even more on both cooling and heating expenses.

Sooooo honest! Saved me $2,200!

Ask for Kurtis! Sooooo honest! Fixed the issue instead of trying to sell what I didn’t need. He was the 3rd estimate for my ac problem. Turned out I don’t have a major problem. I’m so thankful he saved me $2,200! Extremely trustworthy!Kim T from NB

Impeccable Quality and Professionalism…

Had them install our system when building and multiple other contractors commented on the impeccable quality and professionalism of their work and staff. Worked with them on another building project and had equally great service and quality. Used them on a service call and Mitchell was very timely, efficient, and professional. Provided explanation in detail of what had happened and fixed it quickly. VERY impressed with this company and would recommend to ANYONE in need of a system install or repair service.

I Knew I Made the Right Choice from the Word Go

Kurtis Hall dealt square and honest every step of the way. His knowledge of our dated system, new product information, project scheduling and communication allowed for a seamless installation at our vacation property without my having to interrupt my work schedule to accommodate the project. And living over 5 hours away that was a huge help to me. I knew I made the right choice from the word go. Excellent job Mr Hall! Will recommend your company to others!
