Gift ideas to lower your energy bill

Sure, you could give that special someone in your life another gift card to Applebee’s this holiday season. Instead, why not give them a gift that will keep giving all season long: a lower energy bill.

Here are some gift ideas to help reduce the work of your furnace this season.

41TU8mDHEjLStop those door drafts

The winter wind can cool off a house in a hurry if it gets in under your doors. Try the Twin Draft Guard if cold air is entering your house from under your doors.

Programmable thermostat

There’s no need to heat your house when you’re not home. Or when you’re asleep. Use a programmable thermostat to control your furnace settings throughout the day. Newer models such as the Lennox iComfort let you control the temperature from your phone, tablet or computer.

Furnace clean and check

Our yearly furnace clean and check will make sure your furnace is running at optimum efficiency and is ready for the winter heating season. Call today to schedule an appointment – 515-278-2900.

Dimmer switches

It gets dark earlier, so we use our lights more in winter. Fight back by installing dimmer switches so you’re not using the full power of your light bulbs all the time. Dimmer switches can lower your energy bill and increase the life of your bulbs.

Furnace filters

Nothing says I love you like the gift of a new furnace filter. If your filter is dirty, your furnace is working extra hard. That not only means a higher bill each month, but a shorter lifespan on your furnace as well.

A new home comfort system

Do you really love someone? Why not replace their outdated furnace and air conditioner with an entire new system. They’ll cut hundreds of dollars off their energy bill and have the peace of mind of knowing their house will be toasty warm all winter long. Call us today if you’re interested in a new furnace or air conditioner installation.
