Easy Ways to Save Energy in PA this Spring

Spring has officially sprung! Things are finally starting to thaw and Lehigh Valley homeowners are tackling spring cleaning projects to prepare for warmer weather. Are you looking for simple ways to use less energy while maintaining premium home comfort? Here are some industry-approved tips to help you do just that:

1.     Weatherproof your home
Caulking your windows and insulating doors are great ways to keep your home the temperature you want it. Sealing up air leaks will prevent hot air from getting in and precious A/C air from escaping out.

2.     Book your tune-up

An annual air conditioning tune-up is essential to prepare your equipment for the summer season. One yearly visit from our HVAC specialists will help increase operating efficiency, lower utility bills, reduce the risk of midseason breakdowns, extend equipment lifespan, and help avoid expensive surprise repairs.

If you sign up for an A/C service plan, you’ll benefit from an included tune-up plus important service plan benefits like priority repair service, special repair discounts, and more.

 

3.     Wash clothes in cold water
Run your washing machine on cold to spend less on water heating. Unless you have a serious stain, cold water can clean clothes just as effectively as hot water. Plus, cold-washing clothes helps prevent shrinking, fading and color bleeding.

4.     Consider an upgrade

If your air conditioning system is 15 years or older, you could save up to 10% on annual energy costs by upgrading to a new high-efficiency model. Eventually, older systems will require more frequent repairs, which add up! Investing in a new high-efficiency air conditioner will provide long-term savings and better overall comfort.
