Be Cool and Save Energy

The average family will save $180 per year when they use a programmable thermostat. Set your thermostat at 78 degrees or higher and leave it there.

If there is a blockage in the duct system, the static pressure increases, signaling a problem just like high blood pressure does in […]

What is Variable Speed and how does it work?

Variable speed air handlers and furnaces move air at more than one speed. They ramp up slowly providing for virtually silent operation and increased energy savings since they operate at a fraction of the energy required by single speed units. Variable speed can also help overcome some, but not all, duct problems. They can operate […]
