How can you save money?
New cooling and heating units have much higher efficiency levels to help you save money by lowering your utility bills, and are more reliable than older systems.
Systems more than 10 years old use a lot more fuel than newer models. Review the SEER (efficiency) rating of your existing system and compare to newer models. The higher the SEER, the higher the savings that you can expect. A1 Air Conditioning & Heating offers top of the line Lennox air conditioning units, furnaces, and supplies.

Heating your home in the winter can be outrageously expensive, especially where winters are extremely long and cold. Saving on your home heating bill does not have to be expensive, although there are some steps to take that will cost you some money. Cheap ways to save money can include sealing openings and adjusting heat settings in your home.
Save on your oil, natural gas or electricity by comparison shopping the providers in your area. You might not be allowed to choose your energy company; but if you can, you can realize a lot of savings by comparing usage rates and other fees that you’ll be paying throughout the winter.
Air that seeps in, letting heated air out, can be sealed with electrical tape or other tapes that can withstand heat without drying out. Locking your windows can also seal drafts, because the windows close more tightly when they are locked.
Adding insulation to your attic is another way to save on heating, but can be more expensive.
Adjust your water heater. Invest in a programmable thermostat–specific models can range in price–for a comparatively cheap method of saving yourself some cash during the winter heating season. Program your heat settings according to your family’s at-home schedule, keeping the house cooler when nobody is home, and at night.
Clean the vents to your heating system as an inexpensive way to save money.
A home that uses ductwork to move heated air can lose up to 60% of that air before it even reaches the vents. If the ducts are poorly connected, not well insulated and travel through unheated spaces such as the attic or crawlspace.
No matter what type of heating furnace and air conditioning system you might have in your home, regular preventive maintenance will help your system run more efficiently and trouble free while you save money.
