A Quick Study Guide for Homeowners
Air conditioning and heating equipment consume about 44% of a home’s energy bill. Today’s ENERGY STAR® qualified systems are as much as 60% more efficient than 10-year-old equipment.
Seek out a contractor who is associated with a recognized brand. If they are backed by the product and training resources of a major manufacturer, you will feel confident that you’re getting the home comfort system that best meets your needs.
In new homes or remodels, a central home comfort system is the best solution for overall comfort and superior indoor air quality and humidity control.
As a rule of thumb, replace your existing home comfort system when repairs cost 30% of a new purchase—or when utility bills have increased 50% as a result of older, less efficient systems using more, higher-priced electricity.
Look for a programmable thermostat for accurate, reliable, energy-saving performance. For added savings and convenience, our Residential Communicating Control with Wi-Fi® support works with mobile devices to easily program your system wherever you are.
