Heating System – it’s not just a furnace, it’s a heating system that starts at the furnace
and delivers heat throughout the entire home through the duct system. Even a highly efficient
heating system will waste energy if the duct, walls, attic, windows and doors are not air sealed
properly. We may recommend upgrading your furnace, or switching fuel types.
Programmable Thermostats – by installing an automatic setback thermostat you can
save up to 10% in a year’s time on your heating and cooling expenses. This improvement
could save a homeowner up to $180 per year.

Installation of insulation in the attic is relatively easy and very cost effective.

save up to $20 a year per light. The total cost savings will vary depending on usage patterns
by the homeowner.
