4 Ways We Can Help You Stop Wasting Energy

During the hot summer months, air conditioning provides you, your family and your pets with a haven of cool air.

Unfortunately, you might not know how much energy you are wasting while you cool off. Here are some troubling statistics from the United States Department of Energy:

  • Air conditioners use roughly five percent of the electricity that is produced in the US
  • The cost of air conditioners is over $11 billion for US homeowners
  • Each household with an air conditioner annually discharges about two tons of carbon dioxide

If you’re not careful, running your AC is harmful to both the environment and your bank account. Luckily, A.M. Botte Mechanical, LLC, provider of the top HVAC services in the Pennsauken Township region, offers solutions to your energy woes.

Our goal is to ensure that your home is as energy efficient as possible.

Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats can give you total control of your air conditioner. If you left your home for a vacation and forgot to adjust your air conditioning system, you can adjust it on the go with a handy app for your smartphone or tablet thanks to smart thermostats’ Wi-Fi connectivity. These thermostats tell you the temperature both indoors and outdoors and the percentage of humidity in your home.

Another attractive feature is that a smart thermostat can learn your temperature habits to limit the amount of energy you are using.

New AC Systems

We will properly install a new energy-efficient air conditioner in your home. We can also install high-efficiency units.

According to the United States Department of Energy, you can reduce air conditioning energy anywhere from 20 to 50 percent by having a high-efficiency air conditioner and taking these other actions to lower these costs. They also estimate that today’s top air conditioners use 30 to 50 percent less energy than systems from the 1970s.
