HEATING & COOLING
If I don’t do annual maintenance on my water heater, what problems might I experience?
Besides changing my filters, what maintenance should I do on my heating & cooling system?
How can I identify the reasons for high home energy costs?
Of course, there are some factors you cannot control, like climate. For example, a central air conditioner will run a lot harder and get more use in Florida, than in the Northeast. But you can lower operating costs by better insulating your home, and by keeping windows and doors to the outside shut as much as possible. Also, look at household additions, such as ceiling fans that can better distribute heated or cooled air throughout your home.

By switching out your filters once a month you can cut down on the amount of dust and pollutants in your air. Filters remove dust and other particles from the air such as pollen, bacteria, smoke, smog, pet dander, and plant and mold spores.
