In today’s economy, homeowners are more conscious than ever of the need to cut costs wherever possible. One way to do this is to invest in energy-saving appliances for the home. Following is one way to do just that.
Combination Boilers: Save on Heat and Hot Water Costs
Everyone uses heat and hot water. These are supplied via various methods, one of the most common being electricity. When electricity is used, it usually means that there’s a water tank and some type of heating unit (eg, a furnace).
When you add in really cold weather, large square footage that needs to be heated and/or many users, your monthly Pennsylvania electricity bill can get really steep very quickly.
But, what if you could get all the heat and hot water you need from one unit? This is what a combination boiler (aka combi boiler) can do. Instead of heating water from a cold water tank (which takes more time), combi boilers heat water from the water main – as it’s being dispensed.
This means you don’t have to run water and wait for the “hot” to come on. Imagine the savings from this one feature alone.
Another thing is, with the federal government giving energy tax credits to homeowners who make energy-efficient improvements to their home, now has never been a better time to install a combi boiler.
Get Energy Savings Everyday
If you’re currently under a prepaid electric service plan contract with a Pennsylvania electricity provider, it pays to do some investigating into other options. Why? Because there are low-deposit and no-deposit options that are so much more budget friendly.
Even if you’ve had credit problems in the past and fear having to pay a high deposit, you have choices. Check with traditional Pennsylvania electric companies and ask about programs like budget billing and LIHEAP.
These programs are designed to help credit challenged, low-income and fixed-income residents save on their Pennsylvania electric bills.
