February 28, 2014
When the heating technicians at Tap Roots perform heating installations in Vancouver, BC and the surrounding areas, we not only want to install the heating unit that will make our customers the most warm and comfortable, but also the heating unit that will help them to save energy for years to come. There are, of course, two major reasons you want to save on energy:
- When you save on energy, you save money!! Who doesn’t want to keep a little extra cash in their wallet? Efficient HVAC systems and other appliances can save you money day in and day out, year after year.
- When you save on energy, you help the environment!! By choosing energy-efficient appliances and heating units you can do your part to help reduce air pollution and greenhouse gases.
To save money on energy, you don’t have to deprive yourself of a comfortable home by turning down the heat or limiting the use of your air conditioner or other appliances. The key to saving energy is choosing the right heating system and appliances whenever possible. Check out these two energy-saving options:
Geothermal Heating & Cooling – A geothermal heat pump doesn’t burn a fuel. Instead, it transfers heat into and out of your home. If it’s hot inside, it moves the warmth outside; if it’s cold, it moves outdoor or underground heat inside. Eco-friendly homes love geothermal HVAC systems because they don’t emit greenhouse gases.
Energy Star Appliances – It’s much more cost efficient to save money month after month on utility bills than it is to purchase the cheapest appliance on the market. By choosing Energy Star appliances, you can be assured that your appliance will operate efficiently and save you money in the long term. There are all sorts of Energy Star certified products from water heaters to air conditioners to furnaces and boilers. The more energy-efficient products you choose, the more your energy savings will add up!
Let the professionals at Tap Roots Plumbing and Heating help you choose the energy-efficient products that will work best in your Vancouver area home or business. Our savvy heating technicians and certified plumbers can’t wait to help you save money and protect the environment.
