If it’s such a great idea, why isn’t everyone doing it?

The Washington Post recently reported on the Pew Center’s climate research that showed the breakdown on where we use energy in our home:
• Heating/Cooling – 42%
• Water Heating – 14%
• Lighting – 11%
• Electronics and Computers – 10%
• Refrigeration – 7%
• Cooking – 5%
• Other – 8%
• Statistical Adjustment – 3%
Notice who’s at the head of the list? No question about it, your heating and cooling system sucks up the biggest portion of your energy dollars. That’s why we always recommend one very important way to help you conserve these dollars: regular service and maintenance.
Regular maintenance also helps you stay comfortable in your home and extends the life of equipment that accounts for such a sizeable investment.
Maintaining your equipment can usually prevent breakdowns. The reason a lot of companies keep this a secret is that the average repair is about triple the cost of a tune-up and to replace a system is up to 50 times the cost. A regularly maintained system is actually inexpensive insurance, especially when you factor in the energy savings.

WV-2_Video Six Which Direction To Turn - fall.wmv

Which Direction to Turn?

You could say, seasons never change alone. When summer rolls over to fall, we also start reshuffling a lot of the things we do. For example, we change what we wear. Head back to school. Spend more time inside – or outside. Follow a different sport. Watch a new TV season.
Yes, a shift in season shifts a lot of the things we do. You could say, it feels a little like a change in direction. If you want to stay comfortable in your home, there’s something else that calls for a change in direction too.
The rotation of your ceiling fan helps you stay cool during the summer. We all know this, of course, but what many are surprised to learn is that ceiling fans can also help keep you comfortable in winter – once you change the direction of their rotation.
So, the change in season doesn’t mean you have to put your ceiling fan into hibernation. Simply reverse the rotation of the blades, and it’ll help you stay warm. Confused? Don’t be. We’ve got a video that tells more about it. Please take a look!
