Get the most bang for your energy buck

With the demand for electricity and natural gas rising along with energy costs, American homeowners can easily spend hundreds of dollars on utility bills.
“From air conditioning larger homes to powering today’s high-tech electronics, we are using more energy than ever and that is certainly hitting many homeowners in their pocketbooks,” says Victor Gonzalez-Maertens, an energy efficiency expert with Lennox Industries – a leading manufacturer of home heating and cooling equipment. “But there are ways to stretch your dollar further by evaluating how you spend money on energy and learning how to control those expenses.”
Heating and cooling is typically the largest energy expense. To cut down on costs, be sure to schedule annual routine maintenance on your heating and cooling system.
If the air conditioning system is more than 10 years old or the furnace is more than 15 years old, consider replacing them with a new, Energy Star-qualified system that can help lower utility bills. For example, by replacing an old 10 SEERĀ  cooling system with a 21 SEER system, which is twice as efficient, homeowners can save more than $1,500 over five years.
