Make a few efficiency improvements throughout your home for all-around benefits.

Replace Attic Insulation

Attic insulation is extremely important for energy efficiency. Poorly insulated attics can lead to massive energy leaks and high utility bills. Good insulation will improve temperature control by reducing heat transfer. By preventing the heat from entering via the roof, your AC won’t have to work as hard. Our technicians will provide an honest assessment and determine the type and amount of insulation you need.

Regular Maintenance

During a maintenance visit, we check all your system’s components—from electrical connections to the thermostat’s operation. Issues in the system can lead to reduced efficiency. Your air conditioner will have to work harder to make up for a failing part or clogged filter.

AC problems are often difficult, if not impossible, for homeowners to detect. Small problems can worsen over time and can even lead to system damage. Our service techs will catch developing issues before they become major concerns. We will help you to avoid a sudden malfunction or even complete system failure.

Programmable Thermostats

Whether you decide to choose a programmable or smart thermostat, an upgrade can help to improve air conditioning efficiency. You can program your thermostat to maintain comfortable temperatures based on your family’s routine. Additionally, many of today’s thermostats allow you to make changes even if you’re away from home.
