What’s Wasting Your Energy Dollars?

You paid top dollar for your heating equipment, but what happens when you’re no longer getting the bang for your buck? If your heating system doesn’t seem to warm up your home as well as it used to, and you find you’re spending more money on fuel year after year, the causes could be…

Poor Home Weatherization is the result of more than 30% of all heated air loss. Gaps and spaces throughout your home might allow air to escape, and also create drafty rooms where cooler air can get in. Use weather-stripping and caulk around doors and windows, upgrade the insulation in your home, and seal up the ducts through which air travels to improve the amount of warm air staying inside.

Outdated Equipment causes the efficiency of your heating system to degrade significantly. This is where a majority of increases in fuel consumption happen, as older equipment tends to require more fuel to keep up with the demands of the household. A simple upgrade to your heating system could save you up to 40% on your heating costs!

An Improperly Sized System can mean the equipment is either too big or too small for your home. A system that’s too large will turn on and off more often than it should, leading to greater wear and tear, and more frequent repairs. A system that’s too small will keep running indefinitely, never reaching your desired temperature and consuming fuel. Having an appropriately sized heating system installed in your home can fix this problem!
