Here are 5 home improvements that will save tons of energy and water. Conveniently, they will save you money too! The cherry on top? Anderson Plumbing, Heating & Air is a HERO Registered Contractor. Among many other benefits, the HERO Program provides up to 100% financing (with no credit score or down payment required) for residential home energy upgrades.
Top 5 Home Improvement Upgrades for Conservation
#1 - Upgrade to Energy-Efficient Heating and AC
There are many reasons to consider upgrading to a new, high-efficiency heating and air conditioning system, especially if your system is 10+ years old. Newer HVAC systems save much more energy, providing significant savings on utility costs and your home will be more comfortable. Programmable thermostats and zoning technology increase savings and enhance comfort even further. It’s also important to consider the R22 Freon phase out and whether your current system uses R22.
In addition to HERO Financing, you may be able to take advantage of seasonal Lennox rebates. These rebates are only available during limited periods, so keep an eye on our Coupons & Offers page for current rebate offers.
#2 - Get Regular (Annual) Maintenance
Your HVAC system is like a car and needs regular tune-ups to run safely and at its peak performance. Many homeowners are not even aware that most manufacturer warranties require annual maintenance. Take advantage of pre-season tune-up discounts or learn more about VIP Service Plans for no-hassle safety, savings and peace of mind.
#3 - High-Efficiency Toilets
Replacing older toilets with newer, low-flow toilets can save up to 350 gallons a week. That’s especially exciting when you consider the rising cost of water in San Diego. What’s even better is we offer Cash for Clunkers. We’ll give you $100 toward a new high-efficiency toilet and haul away that old water-guzzler for you - and of course, we’ll recycle it!
#4 - Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters use less energy than tank heaters because they heat water “on demand”, rather than have to keep it warm until it is used. Tankless water heaters add to your home comfort as well because you won’t run out of hot water!
It’s also important to note that new federal regulations require new water tank water heaters that are larger and more expensive. With these new regulations, it definitely makes more sense to upgrade to tankless.
#5 - Water Treatment & Filtration Systems
Refilling water bottles reduces waste and saves money. Everyone knows this. What you may not be aware of are the options you have to ensure the water in your home is clean, delicious and safe for your appliances. More on the benefits of home water treatment and filtration
