Insulate your wallet against Winter Heating Bills

Growing up, we were always told to put on a cap in the winter – we lose most of the heat from our bodies from our heads – same thing with your home. Protecting the top of our homes during the winter is like putting on a warm cap.

Our homes act like a big chimney, the taller the home, the greater movement of air, which is called stack effect.

What the Window Companies don't want you to know

Windows are a very important part of our lives - they allow us to see what is going on in the world, they let in sunshine, and they light our houses so we don’t have to use electricity during the day. We need windows.

But they are a mixed blessing. They have very low insulation values so they cost us a lot more than a plain wall would cost to heat and cool. Also, this low R-value means the surface is cold so we can feel cool standing next to them, and they have a lot of moving parts, which means they can leak air.

High Heating Oil Costs Got You Down?

This winter so far has dealt us some brutally cold weather. With this comes high home heating oil usage as well as the associated high costs. There are many improvements that you can do to burn less oil and obviously save money and quite possibly increase your comfort levels.

The most obvious improvement most HVAC companies would recommend is the replacement of older inefficient boilers and furnaces with newer high efficiency equipment. This alone can save up to 30 percent of fuel usage depending on how old and inefficient your present equipment is. However, this may or may not be the best way to cut costs and improve efficiency.

HVAC Jamaican Style

I just recently had the opportunity to go on vacation to Jamaica. It is hard to totally separate yourself on vacation from what you do everyday back home. For me, that is selling HVAC equipment.

I couldn’t help but notice that there were very few buildings that have central air conditioning systems where duct work is used to deliver conditioned air from a central air handler.

New Financing and Rebates For Upgrading Your Heating And Air Conditioning System

Upgrading your heating and air conditioning equipment is never more affordable. Homeowners in Southeastern Pennsylvania, which includes Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, Delaware and Chester counties, can upgrade their heaters and air conditioners with new high efficiency equipment. Financing Rates of .99, 4.99 and 5.99 percent are available for terms up to 10 years to help make high efficiency equipment affordable to almost all homeowners. For example, for a 10 year $10,000.00 loan, the monthly payment is less than 100.00 per month. This payment is largely offset by utility savings incurred with the newer high efficiency equipment.

The High Cost of Leaky Duct Work

According to studies, leaky duct work increases total cooling and heating energy usage by as much as 30%. That’s 30 cents out of every $1 you pay in energy bills. Over the course of a year, this can add up to hundreds of wasted dollars.

The importance of Air sealing your home

In typical homes, air leaks are often found at cracks, small holes, and penetrations for plumbing, wiring, lighting, and ductwork. Together, these leaks can add up to as

much air loss as having an open window! It’s easy to imagine how this can increase a homeowner’s utility bills and reduce comfort.

Sealing a home’s envelope—its exterior walls, ceiling, and floors—is an important step in controlling the indoor environment and lowering energy bills. The goal is to reduce air leakage as much as possible, while providing ventilation as needed for fresh air. In other words, “build it tight and ventilate it right.”

Replacing HVAC Equipment In Older Homes

We love working with people who have older homes and would like to replace existing equipment or add additional systems.

Because we started as an oil service company, most of our customers had older homes with hot water boilers with baseboard or radiator heating systems. A lot of these homes have boilers that are very old - some as old as 50 to 60 years old. Many of these boilers are as a big as a small car and are extremely inefficient. We have replaced many of these boilers and replaced them with new high efficiency units a third the size. In a lot of these cases we install an indirect domestic hot water tank and have seen reductions in Oil usage as high as 40 percent.

The Many Benefits Of Ductless Split Systems

Ductless Split Systems

A ductless Heat Pump / Air conditioner is a system that circulates cool/hot air in a building without ductwork. These systems are an affordable alternative to central heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC ) systems, which need a network of ducts to move air. Ductless systems are generally considered to be more efficient and easier to maintain than window air conditioners.
