Maximize the Heat from Your Fireplace
A roaring fire looks warm, but is it really? Here are a few easy ways you can help your fireplace heat more efficiently and save costly energy in the process. Install tempered glass doors and a heat-air exchange system that blows warmed air back into the room. Purchase grates made of C-shaped metal tubes to draw cool room air into the fireplace and circulate warm air back into the room. The Westinghouse HVAC experts have lots of other ideas on how you can save energy, as well as heater models that can cut your annual energy bills significantly. Call us for more information today.
Tips on Improving Your Indoor Air Quality
Here’s a shocking statistic from the EPA: indoor air can be two to five times more polluted than outdoor air, and it can threaten the health of your entire family. Start improving the air quality of your home by keeping out things that cause pollution, like cigarette smoke and chemicals. Proper ventilation will also help remove dangerous contaminants from the house. Open your windows regularly, and make sure you have good exhaust fans in your bathroom and kitchen. Finally, consider a whole house air cleaner to remove toxins and improve the overall air quality of your home. Contact us, the Westinghouse heating and air experts, for more information today.
How to Save Energy by Using Your Thermostat
"How well are you using your programmable thermostat? Think about when your family wakes up, leaves the house and goes to bed. Then, set your thermostat to change temperature at these times. Realize winter savings by programming your thermostat to drop by eight degrees when you’re away and when you’re sleeping. In the summer, increase the temperature by seven degrees when you’re away and by four degrees when you’re sleeping. And never override your thermostat or place it on hold. Turning the temperature way up or down won’t make your system heat or cool faster, but it will make it work overtime and wreak havoc on your energy bills. Ask us, the Westinghouse HVAC experts, how to optimize your settings during your next pre-season checkup. It could save you as much as $180 a year. "
