Regular maintenance helps reduce your bills. If your electric and gas bills are too high, the first step is to check all furnace air filters and air conditioning filters to ensure they’re not blocked, which reduces efficiency and raises your electric and gas bills.
You should have a SAYCO technician check your filters as well as your ducts, heaters, air conditioners, heat pumps and HVAC systems several times a year. We can maintain and repair your heating and cooling equipment to ensure its efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
Among other options, you should also consider replacing your air conditioner or furnace with a new HVAC system. That’s because a new energy-efficient air conditioner or heat pump may save as much as 50% of your monthly energy costs, depending on the type and age of your existing equipment.
And, even if you don’t use much heating in your home or business, a new forced air furnace is generally 30% to 40% more efficient than older models. Over time, these savings add up quickly.
As well, the newer air conditioning and heating systems use programmable or “learning” thermostats which tailor the heating and cooling output to meet your exact needs, which can save a lot of money.
When you ask SAYCO to help you troubleshoot your high utility bills, we’ll first perform a comprehensive energy audit to discover exactly why you’re spending so much. Then, we’ll recommend the best ways of getting the best cooling and heating.
And, when we estimate and plan for a customer’s new air conditioner or heater, we always make sure that the system is right-sized, so you won’t be spending money on over-capacity.
