The cooler weather brings cold drafty breezes and higher heating bills. While the weather is still warm in the Chesapeake, VA area, you certainly don’t want to forget to have your heating system checked.
There are several ways to alleviate home energy efficiency concerns and receive tax credits for your efforts and expense. The Federal Government offer tax rebates and credits for home energy efficiency, combine this with the cost effective services from Central Plumbing and Heating, as well as the savings you'll earn from an efficiently operating system, and you could save some money on a new home HVAC system.
To improve the efficiency of your home, tuning your heating and cooling systems and weatherizing your home are both very good places to start.
HVAC: If you have a relatively new heating system in Chesapeake, VA, make sure to have it tuned up every year to ensure maximum efficiency. Clean filters and primed pumps make a difference. If you have an older heating system, or are looking to convert oil to gas, contact Tidewater Service.
Weatherizing: Drafty windows and doors are a major waste of energy and money. Some doors and windows just need caulking or insulation, others need to be replaced. Important to seal all openings, cracks and seems in the basement and garage areas.
A little maintenance and planning always saves money and headaches in home ownership. For more information, contact Central Plumbing and Heating.
