Is a Gas Hot Water Heater Right for You?

At first glance, solar cooling looks like an oxymoron. However, the same energy that can provide heat in the wintertime can also provide cooling during the summer.. 



Top Furnace Tips

1. Set your thermostat at your comfort level and then Forget you have one. It takes less energy to heat air 4-5 degrees than it does to heat air 8-10 degrees.

2. Help your furnace to breath easy and work effectively, clean or replace filters on furnaces once a month.

3. Clean warm-air registers, baseboard heaters, and radiators as needed; make sure they’re not blocked
by furniture, carpeting, or drapes.

4. Place heat-resistant radiator reflectors between exterior walls and the radiators.

5. Use kitchen, bath, and other ventilating fans wisely; in just 1 hour, these fans can pull out a houseful of warmed or cooled air. Turn fans off as soon as they have done the job.

6. Keep draperies and shades open on south-facing windows during the heating season to allow sunlight to enter
your home; close them at night to reduce the chill you may feel from cold windows.

7. Select energy-efficient equipment when you buy new heating equipment.
