Q: What are the benefits of a
A: A Programmable thermostat is programmed for when you leave
your house and then return home. The thermostat turns of the
furnace during the hours you are not home so that energy is not
used to keep the house warm while you are at work. The
thermostat will then turn back on 30 minutes before you come
home so your house is at the perfect temperature when you are
home. These thermostats save up to 15% on your energy bills
during the winter and 10% in the summer.
Q: Why are furnaces and air
conditioners so noisy?
A: They are not noisy if you install new Trane components in
your system. Old units were not built with the quality materials
that are used today. Trane also installs sound insulators on the
compressor as well as a weather guard top that not only reduces
noise but increases the life of the unit by not letting debris
get into the system.
Q: When I am on vacation should I turn
off my furnace to save energy?
A: Common settings is 85 degrees in the summer if you have air
conditioning and 60 in the winter if you will be gone for a
couple of days. These settings will keep most plants alive and
will keep pipes from freezing and bursting in the winter.
Q: Do I run any risk by accepting the
A: YES! If a bid comes in 5-10% lower than other companies it is
because they are using inferior products, do not do a quality
installation or are leaving something out of their bid. Many
companies will not pay for permits or schedule the inspector to
come to your house. City Energy Systems does all the work for
you, you just need to relax and enjoy the comfort and energy
efficiency of your new system.
