When the cold seasons come along you know it’s time to bundle up, get your shots and watch that energy bill. If you haven’t checked your air conditioning in a while and you notice your energy costs getting a little high, it might be time to call your local repair service and install new commercial boilers. Even a small repair can save you hundreds of dollars every year! Below I’ll list some tips on calling a professional, installing more efficient air-conditioning and saving money in the long run.
Air Conditioning Services In The U.S.
Around two out of every three homes in the United States have air conditioners. They cost U.S. homeowners more than $11 billion every year, though regular maintenance can extend the lifespan of your unit by a large margin. Natural gas is also the most common resource used for heating U.S. homes at 57%. Not all heating and cooling systems are made the same, however, and have different requirements for upkeep and efficiency.
Furnaces, Boilers And Air Conditioners
Commercial boilers have a lengthy lifespan, lasting anywhere from 15 to 30 years depending on how often they’re maintained. Furnaces, on the other hand, have a shorter lifespan of around 15 to 18 years on average. Laws require a bare minimum efficiency for new gas furnaces, at around 78%, with new models reaching over 90% efficiency overall. Regardless of the system you use, there’s always a way to cut down on heating and cooling costs.
It can be frustrating when your heating bill rises unexpectedly. When almost half of all energy use in the typical American home comes from heating and cooling systems, it’s important to tally up the easiest ways of saving on costs. Some of the most common reasons of losing energy are duct losses, which can account for 30% or higher of energy consumption. You can reduce duct losses by installing ductless mini split cooling and heating systems, as well as practicing good habits such as using automatic thermostats and keeping your windows shut on a regular basis.
Choosing A Contractor
If you don’t want to skimp out on quality but are looking to save on energy costs, call your local dedicated professionals to install new heating and cooling systems. General contractors will look over your furnace, commercial boilers or air conditioner and decide whether it needs to be repaired or replaced. Alongside some smart energy saving habits, lower bills and a happier home are only a call away!
