Heating is a major expense for homeowners living in cold climates. Use these heating tips from A. Borrelli specialists to cut your energy bill and keep your home cozy this winter.
Choosing an HVAC system for your home can be a daunting task. When you consider these five important factors as you do your research into the right products and services for you, you will make a wise decision.
With winter coming on, it's time to start thinking about turning on the old furnace, and that means that it's time for your furnace's annual inspection and tune-up. Just like people need an annual physical from their doctor, you need to have a professional clean and inspect your furnace at least once a year. There are a lot of good reasons to do this, but one big one is that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends it to prevent the buildup of carbon monoxide in your house, a buildup which can potentially prove deadly. The Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that around 80 people die every year due to carbon monoxide poisoning caused by malfunctioning heating systems across the nation. Because carbon monoxide is odorless and colorless, it can build up to toxic levels before you're even aware that it's there. A furnace tune-up is a cheap and painless way to make sure that your family is safe this winter.
