All year long, whether it’s hot or cold, you’ll probably be adjusting the thermostat up or down to keep you comfortable. The summer’s heat will bring additional hours on your air conditioning system, while winter’s cold makes for more time with the furnace running.
One thing is consistent no matter what time of year it is — you need energy to run both of those systems. If your heating and cooling bills are higher than you’d like them to be, it’s probably time for an energy assessment.
At Fred F. Collis & Sons, we have fully trained technicians certified by the Building Performance Institute who use state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to give you a free energy assessment. They will analyze your heating and cooling systems to locate instances of energy loss, while at the same time pointing out any problems that can cause concern for your family’s safety.
Our technician’s inspection will enable us to give you a plan of options available that are specific to your own situation, and then we’ll go over our recommendations one-on-one with you. You’ll know for sure what should be done, from sealing of air leaks around doors, windows, and ducts; insulating; and upgrading appliances and lighting; and the cost of the project before hand.
To make it even more enticing, we’ll show you the incentives and subsidies that are available from various state and federal agencies, as well as utility companies, that can pay for some or even all of the work. These include the Assisted Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program that funds up to 50 percent or $5,000 of the project’s cost.
Fred F. Collis & Sons will check for you to see if you qualify, and the money savings on your energy bills alone will pay for the project itself in a short time.
