Cutting Utility Costs by $100’s
Older heating and cooling units that don’t function well can make energy bills run up to 49% higher than newer models. The efficiency of newer models is 95% vs ~60% of those a few years old. Here are a few warning signs that your unit could be wasting $100s:
- It is more than 10 years old
- Gas & electric bills are rising
- Inconsistent hot or cold interior temperatures
- You’ve had repairs in the last 2 years
- Your house feels dry or dusty

Check For Savings
Some state and local utility companies offer specials for installing a new, energy-efficient unit. Depending on your state, this could mean $100s to $1,000s back in your pocket. Visit the Energy Star website for a comprehensive list before you start your project.
Plus, most of the popular name brands discount products by several hundred dollars this time of year.
The best part is that you can compare prices to get the best deal for your budget.
Better Performance Equals Better Resale Value
New high-tech models incorporate sound absorbing materials to reduce noises, use 1/3 less fuel compared to older models, have longer warranties and superior air flow. All of these factors culminate into a higher resale value for your house when prospective buyers see a new unit.
