What You Can Do To Help Conserve
If you can’t remember the last time you had your heating system tuned up – it’s probably time. Your system’s maximum performance and efficiency may decrease without regular tune-ups. Similarly, you should consider replacing your heating system if it’s more than 20 years old. Chances are, it’s not as energy efficient as the units produced today and that alone can be costing you a fortune.
