  • Insulate your attic to a minimum of R-38.
  • Run the fan feature on your system’s thermostat more often to reduce air stratification.
  • Keep your blinds closed in order to keep direct sunlight out in summer.
  • Use the setback cycles to offset the temperature while you sleep or when you are away.
  • Never let your home heat or cool more than 12 degrees from your desired temperature.
  • Weather-strip your doors, including the attic access door.

Energy Star ®

A joint program of the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), ENERGY STAR is intended to help people save money while protecting the environment through the use of more energy efficient products and practices. To earn the ENERGY STAR label, a product must meet stringent requirements established by the program. Requirements cover a variety of concerns, including increased energy efficiency, performance, and expected utility bill savings. Smit’s offers a wide selection of ENERGY STAR products, including high efficiency furnaces and air conditioning units, designed to help reduce your energy usage.

Now is the best time to invest in a solar panel system. With the recent American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 being signed into law, there is no longer a cap on the refund you can receive from the federal government on your new solar panel system. The federal government will refund your total cost for a new system by 30% while your local utility will reduce that by approximately 20-30%.
