Pair Your Furnace with a Heat Pump| Naperville, Olympia Fields

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

One of the biggest complaints among homeowners is high energy bills. Unfortunately for homeowners in Chicago, it is very difficult to sacrifice using the furnace or the air conditioner in order to save a few bucks every month. Our unpredictable summers are one thing, but our winters can be especially brutal. From Chicago all the way to Naperville, we are covered in a blanket of frigid snow. So, how are we going to save money?

What is a Heat Pump?

If you currently have a gas furnace heating your home, you may want to consider adding an electronic heat pump. A heat pump is combination heating and cooling system that uses electricity to move heat rather than to generate heat.  In the summer, the heat pump will act as your air conditioning by removing the hot air from inside your home and moving it outside. In the winter, the heat pump will pull hot air out of the outdoors and bring it indoors. Even if the outside feels cold, there is still heat present in the air for the heat pump to extract for use inside your home. This is a very efficient system because it generates two to three times more heat than the electricity it uses. (more…)

Peoples Energy Gas Rebate

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

If you’re currently in the market for a new furnace and live in Chicago, there has never been a better opportunity to save. The gas company will give you an instant $450 rebate and the federal government is also offering a $1500 energy tax credit on top of the $450 gas company rebate, for a total savings of $1950 dollars.  When you take these rebates on your new furnace and combine them with the rebates from Lennox and Four Seasons you can receive a total of $3000 cash back toward the purchase of a new high efficient furnace.  The tax credits given by the federal government expire December 31, 2010.  The Peoples Energy rebates end on January 15, 2010 and the Lennox rebates as well as the Four Seasons Heating rebates end March 1, 2010.
