If your furnace or air conditioner is more than 10 years old, your contractor may recommend that you replace it with a unit that has earned the ENERGY STAR® label. Installed correctly, these high-efficiency units can save up to 20 percent on heating and cooling costs. But when it comes to heating and cooling equipment, bigger is not always better. A properly-sized unit will make your home more comfortable by providing more consistent temperatures and better humidity control.
Energy used for lighting and appliances can account for half of your home’s total utility bill. As a result, the home performance contractor may recommend ENERGY STAR® qualified products, such as refrigerators, dishwashers, electronic equipment, light fixtures, and compact fluorescent bulbs. An energy – and water – efficient hot water heating system may also be recommended.Once you’ve taken steps to increase your home’s efficiency, you may also want to consider adding renewable energy systems, such as solar electric (photovoltaics) or solar hot water, to further reduce your utility bills.Financing is available for repairs and efficiency upgrades.
