3 Ways to Reduce Your Energy Bill with Holiday Guests
Thursday, December 14, 2017

Energy services can help you cut down on your monthly bills — even when you’re entertaining for the holidays.

Not sure if energy services can help you save some money this holiday season? You’ll be happy to know that you can cut back on your expenses, even if this time of year is usually one of the priciest for you. The following three tips can help you reduce your energy consumption, allowing you to lessen your impact on the environment while also putting more green in your pocket.

Tip #1: Save Energy with Smarter Habits and a Smarter Thermostat

Smart thermostats allow you to control your home's temperature settings from anywhere. They also grant the ability to program a schedule ahead of time, which means no more money wasted on heating an empty house! Some models even let you monitor your energy usage to identify other ways you can save.

Tip #2: Use Energy Efficient Bulbs

Those little Christmas lights you drape over your home's exterior might seem small, but the amount of energy they can burn is anything but. This is particularly true for the older light setups. They may have some sentimental value, but they're a heavy drain on your energy — replacing them with LED bulbs can save you a tremendous amount of money, depending on how often you keep them lit. They also last much longer than older, less efficient alternatives.

Tip #3: Get a Home Energy Audit

Audits aren't just the scary things conducted by the IRS. At G+S Heating Air Energy Services, we want to help you save money. Our energy audits allow us to pinpoint the ways you can cut down on your consumption.

3 Step Process to Prepare your HVAC for the Winter
Thursday, December 07, 2017

Your heating and air conditioning system is too important to neglect when the seasons change.

As dependent as we can be on heating and air conditioning in our homes, all too often we fail to put the right amount of care into our systems. This is especially true when we're right on the brink of summer or winter, as this is when we'll be relying on our HVAC more than ever.

Ensuring that the system is ready for the demands to come is essential, or you could end up losing money due to poor efficiency. Worse, you might even face a breakdown during a period of extreme weather. Here are three ways you can prep your HVAC for winter:

1. Prevent Air Leaks to Help HVAC Efficiency

Although checking for drafts and air leaks around windows and doors might not seem like HVAC maintenance and preparation, this can actually make a big difference. Taking the time to insulate areas that might allow air through can save your system from needing to work harder to compensate for lost heat. Also, ensure the weather-stripping you already have in place is in good condition.

2. Make Sure the Heating System has Clean Filters

Most people don't change their air filters nearly enough, and if you're one of them, don't worry. We're not judging you! But it's an excellent idea to get into the habit of swapping out air filters before the onset of winter.

Even if the filters don't appear too dirty, there will still be dust trapped inside. So change them every two months or so, and during the winter or summer months when your HVAC is working overtime, make it a monthly habit. Otherwise your system will be straining to distribute air throughout the house, meaning an increased risk of malfunctions and breakdowns.

3. Get a Tune-up for Your Heating and Cooling System

An inspection conducted by experienced technicians is the best treatment for a system that is about to get a winter workload. Only an expert will be able to identify the small signs that may indicate future issues, and these problems are best dealt with quickly — before the cold weather blows through.

At G+S Heating Air Energy Services, we stay committed to preparing and protecting your heating and air conditioning system. Contact us today for more information!

This Thanksgiving, Be Grateful for Your HVAC
Thursday, November 30, 2017

Maintenance agreements can be the element that saves your HVAC system from disaster! And there’s no time like the holidays for enjoying this benefit.

Thanksgiving is a great time of year, thanks to heaping helpings of food, bustling rooms filled with family and festivities, and HVAC maintenance agreements. What? You don't think the last item on the list belongs there? If that's the case, you're mistaken — the more family you have over, the more important it is to ensure that everyone's comfortable! This usually can't happen without a functioning HVAC system, but the only way to guarantee that is through routine scheduled maintenance.

Preventative Maintenance Can be Cost-Effective

Maintenance visits involve technicians performing thorough inspections of your equipment. They'll clean and test components to ensure they're in good working condition, replacing parts when necessary. The number of visits and depth of the service will depend on your system's age and type, but in any case, this is one of the cheapest types of HVAC service contracts available. When you factor in the cheaper repairs and avoided breakdowns, it can actually pay for itself!

Scheduled Maintenance Can Come With Priority Service

If you enroll in a maintenance program and run into problems with your unit, you won't need to wait long for repairs. An added benefit of routine maintenance is getting priority service over customers who aren't on maintenance plans. This is especially important if your unit breaks down when you're entertaining guests, or when the weather's particularly unpleasant.

Extend Your Unit's Life with Regular Maintenance Agreements

If you choose not to enroll in a maintenance plan for the sake of saving money, you're defeating the purpose! The tune-ups you'll gain access to through an agreement can extend the lifespan of your HVAC system by a huge margin. This keeps your units more efficient, in addition to making sure you don't need to find a replacement before it's necessary.

If you’re looking to get the most out of your HVAC, G+S Heating Air Energy Services is here to help. Whether you need a source for repairs, upgrades or maintenance agreements, get in touch with us today for the help you need.

Frightening Facts about Carbon Monoxide in the Workplace
Thursday, November 23, 2017

Carbon monoxide in the workplace can be deadly; here’s what you need to know from the commercial services experts.

Carbon monoxide is a serious concern that requires high-quality commercial services to ensure you don't get injured. With a little know-how, you can prepare yourself for fighting against its influence and possibly even save the lives of your employees. As you assess your business’s risk for carbon monoxide poisoning, here are the facts to consider:

Exposure Numbers Are Scary

Just how many people suffer from carbon monoxide poisoning in the workplace? According to OSHA, at least 400 people suffer from high-level exposure to this chemical every year. Even more shockingly, at least a few thousand will die from it. However, that doesn't beat the frightening fact that millions of us deal with a long-term, low-level exposure that may be damaging us in ways we can't understand.

Exposure Is Hard to Detect

Even worse is the fact that carbon monoxide can be hard to detect. While commercial services can add detectors in your workplace, these may not detect very low levels. Areas without these detectors can get a sudden influx of carbon monoxide that can injure or kill a person quickly. And it'll happen without them ever smelling a thing.

The Health Effects Are Alarming

Even low-level carbon monoxide poisoning can be troubling. For example, it can cause headaches, dizziness, and nausea that may be hard to tell apart from other types of sickness. As a result, a person may end up exposed to carbon monoxide for an even longer period.

In a workplace, this is a terrible situation, because they may feel compelled to stay at work to finish their shift and get paid. As they stay in this atmosphere, they are likely to start suffering from higher levels of symptoms, such as confusion, collapse, and lack of coordination. Suffocation, hemorrhaging, brain damage, and even death are the ultimate result.
