Investing in more energy efficient systems can save you a ton of money over time.
EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J. (PRWEB) March 16, 2015
Although Spring is around the corner, frigid temperatures remain stagnant across the state of New Jersey. Gold Medal Service, an award-winning heating, cooling, plumbing, waterproofing, and electrical home service company, offers energy efficient tips to make sure New Jersey homeowners’ HVAC systems don’t go into hibernation early, leaving you in the cold.
By making some simple habit changes and opting for energy-efficient products, you and your family can reduce your annual energy bill, and subsequently your greenhouse gas emissions.
“Investing in more energy efficient systems can save you a ton of money over time,” said Mike Agugliaro, co-owner of Gold Medal Service. “Up to half of your utility bill can be from heating costs, especially if the HVAC system is older than 15 years, because it costs more to run. You can save nearly 25 percent every month by investing in a more energy efficient heating and cooling and water heater system.”
One way to cut down? Turn down the temperature of your water heater. A second option is the ENERGY STAR® Tankless Water Heater. Unlike its traditional counterpart, the tankless water heater only heats the water as it’s needed and goes into standby mode when the demand for hot water ceases, so it uses less energy, and produces an endless supply of hot water.
Other factors that determine what your annual heating costs are:
- The temperature at which you keep your home in the winter
- The amount of leaks in your ductwork
- The number and efficiency level, of windows you have in your home
If you’re not ready to invest in a new system, here are a few more tips to keep your home warmer this winter:
- Check and replace weather stripping on doors and windows
- Have the furnace "tuned up" by a licensed HVAC professional
- Change the furnace filter monthly
- Set back the thermostat when you leave home
“We can also use products like AEROSEAL to seal duct work in old homes to improve efficiency, or if temperatures are uneven and you’re not ready to put in a new unit we can install a split system by Mitsubishi to resolve the problem,” said Agugliaro. “It’s reassuring to know that your home is safe and comfortable, and we are committed to providing that for you and your family.”
