Local gas companies and HVAC specialists recommend you have your heating/cooling system serviced by professionals a minimum of once per year. The ideal time is between the heating and cooling seasons. We offer quarterly, bi-annual and annual heater service to accommodate full-time, part-time and vacation home owners.
You use more hot water in winter. Lower the water heater temperature from 140 degrees to 120 degrees, and take showers, not baths. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the average bath consumes up to 25 gallons of hot water, while a five-minute shower uses up much less — only around 10 gallons. Equipping your showers with low-flow showerheads also dramatically reduces the consumption of water, both hot and cold.
