4 Tips to Help Homeowners Use Less Energy
Check these home maintenance hacks off your to-do list early so you can enjoy the best parts of fall.
Install a Wi-Fi Programmable Thermostat
This affordable addition to your home comfort system can deliver significant energy savings. All you have to do is set your Wi-Fi programmable thermostat to automatically lower indoor temperatures when you are away or asleep. This can be installed by Dwyer any time!
Book Your Annual Heating Tune-Up
A yearly HVAC tune-up from a Dwyer home heating specialist will help increase equipment life and lower the possibility of a mid-season breakdown, and promote safe system operation. Additional benefits, like better fuel economy and operating efficiency are a big plus for energy savings.
Think About Upgrading
How old is your current oil or gas boiler or furnace? If it is 15 years or older, you could seriously reduce your annual heating bills by upgrading to a new high-efficiency model. High-efficiency equipment is safer, more fuel efficient, and less likely to require emergency repair service.
