San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) July 02, 2012
For more than 30 years, San Antonio-based cooling specialists Compton Air Conditioning & Heating have been providing residents with AC and heating repair and service. Having been in the industry for so long, the company has learned many methods by which consumers can reduce their energy use, resulting in overall lower utility bills. Compton Air Conditioning & Heating would now like to share these methods with its customers.
The first thing Compton Air Conditioning & Heating recommends is to simply unplug electronics when not in use. Many electronics and appliances consume significant amounts of energy even when turned off. Anything with a clock or a remote control, for instance, will constantly consume electricity to power these features. By unplugging these electronics or consolidating them into a surge protector, which can easily be switched on and off, consumers will see noticeable reductions in their home's energy use.
Similarly, many older appliances consume much more energy than they need to. Compton Air Conditioning & Heating suggests that customers replace these aging appliances with modern Energy Star-compliant models. These consume far less energy. Homeowners will also see significant savings by switching to CFL light fixtures, which consumer less energy and give off less heat.
Another method Compton Air Conditioning & Heating recommends for consumers looking to save energy is to ensure that there is weather stripping around all the doors and windows in a home. This prevents the indoor climate controlled air from leaking outside, which causes heating and cooling units to work harder, in turn using more energy. For more information on these or other methods of "going green," contact the specialists at Compton Air Conditioning & Heating.
