WHAT IS ENERGY EFFICIENCY?
During the year, your cooling, heating & ventilation systems accumulate dust and dirt making it less efficient and costing you additional money in utility bills. Every year, due to extreme temperatures, many of our customers call and have their cooling & heating systems checked and tuned up. After reviewing 327 calls from last year, we discovered that 73% of them were due to not having a regular tune-up or any preventative maintenance throughout the year.
It’s very important to have high energy efficiency in your home. If not, your systems will work harder and you will pay more money to maintain comfortable temperatures. Milestone offers an Energy Efficiency Evaluation that will let you know all of the in’s and out’s of your system. Our expert technicians will give you options and solutions on how to improve your home’s energy efficiency, which will save you money throughout the year!
