Energy Saving Tips...


Cooling your home with air conditioning uses more energy dollars than any thing else in your home; typically as much as 75% of your electric utility bill goes for cooling your home in the summer.

The number one way you can reduce your energy cost is to replace your system if it is 10 years old or more, with an Energy Star system. This can reduce your energy cost by as much as 63% on the cooling side and as much as a 35% on your heating cost, without sacrificing your comfort level. Of all the energy saving procedures you could implement, this is by far the most cost effective. Right now, many utility companies are offering an added bonus: by reducing your kilowatt usage, you may be eligilbe for the 20/20 discounte rate on your utility bill. (Contact one of our comfort specialists for a FREE in-home energy survey and estimate on your personal savings.)

Why a high efficiency rating can save you money

If your current air conditioner is more than 10 years old, it could be as low as a 6.00 SEER. Compare the annual cooling bill of a 6.00 SEER to American Standard's 10.00, 11.00, 12.00, 14.00 or 16.00 SEER units.

If, for instance, the annual cooling bill of a 6.00 SEER system is $1000, it could cost only $370 for a 16.00 SEER system—that's an annual savings of 63%.

Now that makes dollars and sense.

Other ways to save

We suggest, in the cooling season, you set your thermomstat to 78 degrees or higher when you're at home. When you're away from home, set your air conditioner to 85-87 degrees. Turn your system completely off if you're away for more than two days.


Heating accounts for the biggest chunk of winter energy bills. Make sure your furnace receives a professional "tune-up" at least once a year, and a thorough cleaning twice a year. (Make sure your service professional cleans your condenser coil.) Don't forget to clean or replace air filters once a month to help your unit run more efficiently.

Programmable Thermostats

Installing a programmable thermostat can save you as much as 10% a year on your heating and cooling bills. Set the timer to lower your thermostat 10 to 15% for eight hours when you're at work and you won't have to sacrifice comfort.
