Great Saving Tips for This Year

Great Saving Tips for This Year

It’s not a big surprise that energy costs money, but some people are still surprised when they see how much their consumption is costing them. Keep in mind that anything you can do to conserve energy puts some money back in your pocket.

 

Here are some ways to reduce consumption and at the same time, cut your expenses:

 

Use Your Thermostat

Turning up the temp during the summer and turning it down during the winter are great strategies for having your thermostat to work for your wallet. A programmable thermostat allows you to make the house hotter or cooler during periods when you are not home. This reduces the temperature difference between the interior and exterior of your house, which in turn, reduces energy loss. If you do not have a programmable thermostat, you can adjust your existing unit manually.

 

Change or Empty Your Filters

It is important that you change the filter on your furnace on a frequent basis. Many furnace manufacturers recommend doing it monthly or quarterly to keep the unit operating at maximum efficiency. You should also empty the lint filter on your dryer after every use because even a small amount of lint reduces energy efficiency.

 

Energy-Efficient Light Bulbs

Another quick and easy way to reduce your energy consumption is to replace existing incandescent lights with energy-efficient compact fluorescent ones. Regardless of the bulbs you use, what’s important is that you turn them off when you leave the room. For rooms that are not often used such as laundry rooms, basements, and garages, you might want to consider having timers installed so lights can be set to automatically turn off after a certain amount of time – just in case you forget to turn them off.

 

Close the Doors

Do not waste energy. Close the doors on your house and refrigerator as quickly as possible. Fireplace dampers should be kept shut when they are not in use. Curtains should be closed at night to cover the windows. All of these efforts help to conserve energy by preventing heat loss.

 

Use Your Surroundings

Trees that are strategically placed can help reduce heating and cooling costs. During the summer, trees provide shade and during the winter, they provide a windbreak. Large deciduous trees placed in the right places can also help reduce cooling costs up to 25%. Because they lose leaves in winter, they also allow the sun to warm your house.

I would highly recommend TWINTECH

My 19 year old furnace stopped working when the cold weather hit in November, and I was left without heat. I interviewed several companies and found TWINTECH HEATING and COOLING to be very knowledgeable, quick to respond to my inquiries and very competitively priced.
Dave provided all of the information and pricing ahead of time and set up the appointment for the installation. Greg and Mitch arrived on time to do the installation and worked quickly and efficiently to complete the job.
After the completion of the installation, Dave followed up to ensure that everything was working well and that I didn't have any concerns.
Overall, this was a low-stress and flawless experience from start to finish. I would highly recommend TWINTECH HEATING and COOLING to anyone that requires a new furnace.

we're looking forward to enjoying the new air conditioner

Our 20 year old furnace broke down during the first cold weekend this past November and our usual HVAC company never returned our phone call. Their loss, missing out on a sale since we didn't want to spend much fixing an old furnace and our 40 year old air conditioner was also long overdue for replacement. We proceeded in obtaining three different quotes for furnace and air conditioner replacement, and proceeded with the one we received from Twintech.


Dave was friendly, knowledgable and accomodating to our schedule and provided with us with a price that fell in the middle of the three quotes that we had. We felt that the Amana furnace and air conditioner he quoted us on were the best products and value offered to us and felt most comfortable with the professionalism and reputation of Twintech.


Greg, Grant and Mitch were at our house for installation the day after we decided to proceed. The guys were friendly and informative, the job was completed efficiently and workmanship appears excellent. Our house is certainly much more comfortable with the new two-stage variable speed Amana furnace compared to the old clunker! And, we're looking forward to enjoying the new air conditioner once summer rolls around again. Thanks Twintech!

You made this a positive experience for us

We couldn’t have been more impressed with Twintech - from our first service call with Mitch who took the time to thoroughly diagnose the issue with our furnace, to Dave who proposed a well thought out solution to meet our needs and finally Greg and team who acted quickly to install given we had no heat.


We did our due diligence by soliciting quotes from alternate providers and were shocked and disappointed by the aggressive and manipulative tactics used.


Twintech was honest in their approach, detailed in their product knowledge, reasonably priced, diligent in their follow-up and valued our business.


Well done Twintech! You made this a positive experience for us and our new furnace works beautifully!

Overall I am very pleased with the work and would highly recommend Twintech

We recently purchased an Amana high efficiency furnace and humdifier through Twintech. The work was completed very professionally and the quality of the workmanship was high. There was some additional sheet metal work required to complete the installation, which they were able to complete themselves. Overall I am very pleased with the work and would highly recommend Twintech for a furnace replacement.

the new furnace has been installed and its working great!

The blower on our furnace stopped working leaving us with a cold house. Dave from TwinTech responded immediately to our HomeStars service request. From beginning to end Dave was nothing but helpful, friendly and professional, he did a great job of walking us through the quote and scope of work.


The replacement of the furnace went smoothly. The Guys did a great job, everyone was very friendly and polite. There were no hiccups, or unexpected costs. The only surprise was they left the work area cleaner than it was before they started.


Was a great experience with the whole TwinTech team. Its been a couple of months since the new furnace has been installed and its working great!

I have already recommended them to several friends and family members

I heard about TwinTech when researching new furnaces at furnaceprices.ca. After contacting them about my broken down furnace, Dave came to my house the next day to assess my situation and requirements for a new furnace. He recommended one that had stainless steel heat exchangers which sold me since my previous furnace had issues with a rusted secondary heat exchanger that had to be replaced. Dave also set me up with an appointment with an energy audit company so that I could take advantage of a rebate to help improve the energy efficiency of my home and get some money back. A few days later, Greg, Grant, and Mitch came to install the new furnace and remove the old one. When delivering and removing the furnaces, they were very careful not to damage my floors and walls, and even laid out red carpeting to protect the floors. They were very friendly and professional. The installation was completed in the time they said it would take and they cleaned up their work areas. Within a week, Dave called to follow-up to see how everything was going. I have already recommended them to several friends and family members who may need new furnaces soon.
