AC & Heating
Having energy efficient AC & Heating systems in your home will keep your home comfortable and also save you money as Energy Star central air conditioner and heating systems have a higher seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) and energy efficiency ratio (EER) ratings. They use 8 percent less energy than models that aren’t Energy Star compliant.
You should also have duct sealing done to ensure your duct system is air tight preventing warm air to enter into your duct system during the summer months. This will make your central air conditioner to work harder in order to satisfy the thermostat. Sealing and insulating ducts can improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system by as much as 20 percent and sometimes much more. Ask us about Duct Sealing.
Heating systems that are Energy Star compliant can save money on gas and oil bills depending on what fuel you use. Oil is much more expensive than gas. You may have gas to the curb, you should check with National Grid if your gas line is at the curb. Long Island has many homes that still use oil for heat and it’s why we call Long Island “boiler country”. Hopefully National Grid will provide more homes to convert from oil to gas in the near future.
Once your home is a certified green home you will reap the benefits of comfortable home, health home, a more valuable home and more importantly, you will save money on your utility bills for a lifetime. Get green today by scheduling your home energy audit with Home Efficiency Experts.
