What are the best ways to save on energy costs?

There is no denying that each year, our summers are getting warmer and winters are getting colder. For homeowners, the cost to heat or cool a home can be expensive. At Twintech, we have some helpful tips on how to save money on your next energy bill. 

One of the best ways to save money is by upgrading your old furnace or air conditioning units into more energy-efficient ones. Installing a programmable thermostat will also keep your costs down as you can adjust the temperature according to your schedule and keep your home at a comfortable temperature. You can also place weather stripping around the windows during the colder months so that the warm air stays in your home. 

Regular maintenance of your furnace and air conditioner can help cut the cost of heating and cooling in your home. Your air conditioning maintenance routine can include keeping the condenser coil clean by spraying with a gentle hose spray. Always keep your air filter clean on the furnace too, it’s vital to the operation and efficiency of your AC unit. If you need professional assistance, our technicians can come to your home, inspect your units and provide any maintenance you may need. Adding a ceiling fan to your home will help circulate the air so that your air conditioner does not overexert itself and break down. 

If you want to save money on electric bills, switching from an electric water heater to a gas one is the key. Our technicians can install a new gas heater into your home and put in any necessary gas lines. You may also want to consider insulating the first meter of your hot water pipes and any pipes that run through unheated parts of your home. Additionally, you can install an energy-efficient shower head that will not only save water but also reduce the energy that is used to heat it. 

For more information about our products and services, visit our website or give us a call at 1-844-894-6832. We will answer any questions you may have, call Twintech today! If your units require maintenance, we would be more than happy to set you up with an appointment with one of our service technicians.

See What Our Customers Are Saying:

by Linda, Toronto on Twintech Heating and Cooling

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.

by Sean, Whitby on Twintech Heating and Cooling

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 accommodating 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!

by Bill, Oshawa on Twintech Heating and Cooling

We are very happy with our new furnace. The service was excellent the guys worked 6 hours straight through and there was no mess at all they took the old furnace box’s etc with them they then explained everything to us they were very helpful and pleasant , when we need a new air conditioner we know who to call!

by Ken, Bomanville on Twintech Heating and Cooling

The crew from sales to installation was very professional and had great attention to detail

by Tracy, Pickering on Twintech Heating and Cooling

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!

by Skapoor, Ajax on Twintech Heating and Cooling

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.

by Steve, Oshawa on Twintech Heating and Cooling

We were very pleased with every aspect of the work that was done. They were very professional and polite. They arrived when they said they would and job was completed on estimated time


We would highly recommend them to whoever needed a recommendation


We have a very large dog and they were very understanding and respectful of him being around

by Patrick, Toronto on Twintech Heating and Cooling

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!

by Ed, Whitby on Twintech Heating and Cooling

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.

by Fred, Toronto on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Twintech did a great job, from Dave the Sales Rep to the Office staff and The Professional Technicians who did the installation. They were professional, courteous, knowledgable and informative. From beginning to follow up we were completely satisfied with everything. Thanks Again. Sincerely The Laytons
