Every Degree Counts For About 3 Percent
When it comes to summer savings you can’t afford to not take everything into account. Every degree matters! If you typically kept your thermostat on 70°F last summer, try to keep it at 73°F and see if you can keep cool naturally. These three degrees will save you 9% on monthly cooling costs.

Air Leaks Count for 20-30% of Wasted Energy
Wasted energy is literally money out the window and unfortunately, the Department of Energy says heating and cooling systems waste more energy than all other appliances combined. If your home isn’t sealed properly, you could be wasting between 20 and 30 percent of your home’s energy on a monthly basis. Air is always trying to escape to return to equilibrium and you have to put an end to it! See our air sealing blog for tips to help you save.

Air Conditioners Only Have About a 10-15 Year Lifespan
Your central air conditioner probably ate into your savings account quite a bit, but that doesn’t make it indestructible. Even the most durable brands are only going to have about a 10-15 year lifespan and they are all going to run into some issues along the way. You literally owe it to yourself to get the most out of your air conditioner and that starts with maintenance. We are in tune-up season here at Levine & Sons and we are anxiously awaiting your call today!

Indoor Cooking is a Major No-No
Cooking in the stove can raise indoor temperature 5-20°F depending on the quality of your oven/stove. When you raise the indoor air temperature, your A/C has to work harder to bring the temperature back down to where you want it. They made grills for a reason people– use them! Enjoy delicious barbecued meals and save your unit from all that added pressure.
