How can I improve my energy costs?

Your furnace and air conditioner can contribute significantly to your monthly energy expenses. However, these costs can be decreased with innovative and high efficiency products from Lennox®. Look for high SEER and AFUE ratings when you’re searching for a new air conditioner or furnace, respectively, as higher SEER and AFUE ratings mean higher efficiency products. If you’re not purchasing new heating and cooling equipment, consider factors such as: 1. Maintenance: Furnaces, air conditioners and other HVAC equipment work more efficiently when they are regularly maintained. 2. Zoning: When parts of your home are rarely used, you’re spending more money to heat or cool them to the same temperature as the rest of the house. A zoning system lets you section off different parts of your home and control the temperature by each area. 3. Programmable Thermostats: Programmable thermostats can help you lower your heating costs by 35 percent and your cooling costs by 25 percent, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
