New Year’s Resolutions for Your Home

Paul Gassett - Tuesday, December 31, 2013

Can you believe it? It’s almost 2014. While you’re making resolutions to improve yourself, don’t forget to make goals to improve your home. Some of those things may be ways to maximize energy efficiency and save you money – which in turn will make you a happier homeowner throughout the year.

Schedule a Checkup with an HVAC Technician

This is the only way to be sure your furnace and air conditioning units are operating at their best. Qualified HVAC technicians will inspect your systems and make suggestions on maintenance so your units will last as long as they possibly can.  

Change Filters Regularly

Dirty filters restrict air flow and make your furnace or AC unit work harder, resulting in higher energy bills. So check your filters often - monthly during peak seasons - and change or clean them out when needed.

Seal Windows and Doors

If you feel a draft in your home, there’s probably a space around your windows or doors where cold air is coming in and heated air is going out. Spend a day or so checking for air leaks, and seal them up with caulk or tape. You’ll be surprised how much lower your bills will be.

Go Digital

It’s time to get rid of the analog dial on the wall. A digital, programmable thermostat will let you pre-set the time and temps for your homes so it kicks on and turns off when it’s told to do so.  And aside from its convenience, a programmable thermostat can save you up to $200 per year in energy costs.

Replace Old Units

Make this the year you switch out old inefficient furnace and AC units with modern, energy-efficient systems. New systems provide more comfortable heating and cooling, last longer, require fewer repairs and will save money on monthly bills.   

 

We at 72 Degrees hope you have a safe and Happy New Year. Let us know how we can help you reach your goals for your home in 2014.

National Energy Awareness Month

Matthew Stewart - Saturday, September 28, 2013

Have you thought about how much energy your home uses lately? Well, October is National Energy Awareness Month, so now is a great time to start. If you think you’ve been using more energy than necessary, learning how to manage your home’s heating and cooling zone may be just the solution you need.

Knowing how to keep your home’s temperature efficient through zoning can not only save on energy, but also on money. And now that fall has begun and the weather can rapidly change, zoning will keep costs to a minimum.

So what is zoning, exactly? A zoning system lets you have control over temperatures in different rooms individually instead of the house as a whole. So when you’re in one room, set the temperature to your liking, but when you leave that room be sure to turn off the air conditioning or heat. If you’re diligent about using your zoning system, it can really make a difference for your home’s energy and your wallet.

Contact us to learn more about how you can conserve energy by zoning.

Autumn Is Here

Matthew Stewart - Saturday, September 21, 2013

 

Tomorrow, September 22, autumn will officially begin. Now the leaves will begin to change, pumpkin patches will sprout up, and the air will become cool and crisp. 

Soon, though, the weather will grow colder, and you want to make sure your home’s heating system is ready for whatever elements autumn and winter will bring. Make sure to schedule a furnace tune-up inspection, which will keep your heating unit in good shape throughout the cold months.

At 72 Degrees, our professionals will do a 60-90 minute precision tune-up, which goes through 17 steps and ensures that your heating system is safe and efficient and won’t break down when you need it the most. To see all the details of a tune-up and safety inspection, click here. Don’t hesitate to contact us today. Hot chocolate and pumpkin carving, here we come!

The Most Comfortable $20 You'll Ever Save

Matthew Stewart - Monday, April 15, 2013

Saving money always feels good, but this kind of money-saving will literally feel good, as it refers to your home’s air conditioning system. And now that temperatures outside are rising, you’re going to likely rely on your A/C quite a bit in the coming months.

Because of this, chances are higher that a component of your A/C system could break, leaving you to sweat it out while waiting for a repairman (and costly repairs). Instead of waiting for a problem to occur, you can thwart those pesky repairs by scheduling an A/C check-up to make sure it’s running smoothly.

Bottom line: Your home’s comfort system needs to be professionally maintained in order to last a long time and save you money on utility bills and unwanted repairs.

Schedule your A/C check-up online today to beat the heat and live comfortably.
