 Top 3 Ways to Save on Electric this summer. 

1) Change your light bulbs. Traditional light bulbs use an excessive amount of electricity and must be replaced more often than their energy efficient alternatives. Halogen incandescent bulbs, compact fluorescent lights (CFLs), and light-emitting diode bulbs (LEDs) use anywhere from 25-80% less electricity and last three to 25 times longer than traditional bulbs.Although energy efficient bulbs are more expensive off the shelf, their efficient energy use and longer useful lives mean that they cost less in the long run. These new bulbs are the clear winners in terms of their environmental and financial benefits.

2). Install a programmable or smart thermostat. A programmable thermostat can be set to automatically turn off or reduce heating and cooling during the times when you are asleep or away. When you install a programmable thermostat, you eliminate wasteful energy use from heating and cooling without upgrading your HVAC system. On average, a programmable thermostat can save you $180 per year. Programmable thermostats come in different models that can be set to fit your weekly schedule. Additional features of programmable thermostats can include indicators for when to replace air filters or HVAC system problems, which also improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system.

3). Upgrade your Air Conditioning system. When you need more than a programmable Thermostat, think replacement of your air conditioning system.. Upgrading to a ENERGY STAR certified system, can save you up to 50% on your summer electric usage. Energy star rated systems in our area start at 16 seer and get more efficent from there. New offerings using upgraded technology now available in the HVAC industry. These new products can reduce your HVAC utility bills by up to 50%.

Several manufacturers are keeping America 1st with substantial infrastructure investments across America. Daikin has just completed building the largest HVAC facility in America. just outside of Houston, employing over 5,000 Americans, with a zero net energy footprint.  Rheem, Amana, Lennox, all have manufacturing facilities in the USA. Why replace or install new? With savings of up to 50%, you also get better warranties, lower cost operation and faster returns on your investment.  Good guidelines to look at;  You have single stage equipment 14 Seer or lower, or your current equipment is more than 10 years old.
