If it’s such a great idea, why isn’t everyone doing it?
The Washington Post recently reported on the Pew Center’s climate research that showed the breakdown on where we use energy in our home:
• Heating/Cooling – 42%
• Water Heating – 14%
• Lighting – 11%
• Electronics and Computers – 10%
• Refrigeration – 7%
• Cooking – 5%
• Other – 8%
• Statistical Adjustment – 3%
Notice who’s at the head of the list? No question about it, your heating and cooling system sucks up the biggest portion of your energy dollars. That’s why we always recommend one very important way to help you conserve these dollars: regular service and maintenance.
Regular maintenance also helps you stay comfortable in your home and extends the life of equipment that accounts for such a sizeable investment.
Maintaining your equipment can usually prevent breakdowns. The reason a lot of companies keep this a secret is that the average repair is about triple the cost of a tune-up and to replace a system is up to 50 times the cost. A regularly maintained system is actually inexpensive insurance, especially when you factor in the energy savings.
