Did you know that 56% of the energy used in an average home goes to heating and cooling? For most homes in Fairfax, that comes out to over $1,100 per year. Though these numbers are quite high, it is possible to reduce your air conditioning and heating bills even in the most extreme weather. Investing in a new, energy-efficient HVAC system can save you up to 20% on your monthly utility bills. If you already have an energy-efficient system, a little maintenance from your Fairfax air conditioning and heating service will keep your unit running smoothly. You can also make your home more energy efficient by installing a programmable thermostat and using the sun’s heat to your advantage.
