More Savings, More Comfort with Energy Star

Matt Polsinello - Friday, May 24, 2013

 

We are proud to be an energy supplier that has worked to reduce energy consumption. We believe our Country’s current energy crisis is everyone’s problem. Therefore, everyone needs to play a role in fixing it. Follow these simple measures to reduce your energy use:

  1. Install a programmable thermostat and use the setback feature when you are not home or asleep – you could save over $200 each year

  2. Install Energy Star light bulbs throughout your home – lighting accounts for nearly 12% of your home’s energy bill. 

  3. Use new and advanced power strips – Vampire or Stand-by energy use occurs when devices like TVs, DVD players and small appliances are turned off, plugged in and slowly using power. “Vampire” energy can cost you nearly $100 per year. 

  4. Consider Energy Star appliances throughout your home. A new Energy Star refrigerator could save you over $200 per year. 

  5. Call Polsinello Fuels to schedule a comprehensive home energy audit. The audit will look at your home’s total energy use and provide a customized roadmap to savings for you and your home.

You may qualify for a free or low cost home energy audit – call Polsinello for details.


Keep Cool All Summer Long

Matt Polsinello - Monday, May 20, 2013

 

Spring is here, which means the dog days of summer are just around the corner. Lugging the heavy, loud and inefficient window air conditioner out of storage and into the bedroom window is one of the most dreaded chores of the spring. An affordable, efficient and comfortable central air conditioning system from Carrier can end this vicious “window A/C” cycle.

Carrier and Polsinello Fuels are making it easier than ever for people upgrading to a new central air conditioning system with the following offers:
  1. Carrier Cool Cash Rebates of up to $1,350 for qualifying HVAC system installations
  2. 0% interest financing for up to 12 months (credit qualified customers, restrictions apply)
  3. Uncle Sam is kicking in too, the American Taxpayer Relief Act can save up to an additional $500
  4. Home Performance with Energy Star can save you up to 10% plus other great incentives
Don’t sweat this summer. Enjoy a more comfortable home. Polsinello Fuels is here to help!

The Condition Of Your Air Conditioner

Matt Polsinello - Wednesday, April 17, 2013

 

In today’s economy many people believe in stretching the useful life out of everything around the house. A home’s air conditioner can be a large investment but sometimes replacing an old system just makes sense. The EPA recommends you investigate replacement of your air conditioning system if it is older than 10 years old. The EPA recommends such action because they understand a new more efficient air conditioning system will reduce energy use. If saving the planet isn’t your motivation than sometimes it’s plain old dollars and cents. If you upgraded from an old 10 SEER AC system to a new 21-SEER system, you could save up to 56% on your cooling costs. That is a huge savings and makes the upfront investment worth it! In addition here are a few other things to consider when examining the condition of your air conditioner:

  1. Your air conditioning requires repairs – when considering the cost to operate your system you should include any expensive repairs
  2. Your AC system is loud—new, variable speed systems operate more quietly allowing you to enjoy your home in peace and quiet.
  3. Your air conditioning systems comfort – if your home is not as comfortable as you would like during the summer months, your AC may be up to the challenge anymore.

 

 


Summer Preparation: Air Conditioner Maintenance

Matt Polsinello - Thursday, April 11, 2013

 

During the spring everyone begins to think about the upcoming warm weather and summer fun. But we all know spring cleaning comes first. An item that should be on everyone’s spring cleaning list is servicing their air conditioning system. Right now, Polsinello Fuels is offering early bird cleanings on air conditioning maintenance. Call us today and find out how much you can save. If you are interested in performing some basic maintenance yourself, here are a couple items to look for:

1. Clean or replace your air filter

The air filter is an important part of your air conditioning system. The filter cleans the air we breathe. A dirty filter can contaminant your home’s air with fungi and bacteria. A plugged filter can put strain on your air conditioning system because it will work harder than ever to cool the air in your home. Often, a plugged air filter can shut down your air conditioning system all together.

2. Check your thermostat

As we transition from heating season it is important to understand how your thermostat works. Many homes have programmable thermostats that are programmed for the winter months. During the summer, our home’s temperature requirements change and the program on your thermostat should too. Also, check your thermostat before you call for “No AC” and make sure it is set to COOL.


Do You Need a Tune-Up?

Matt Polsinello - Friday, March 29, 2013

 

Your heating system has worked hard over the past several months keeping your home warm. That is why it deserves some TLC. An annual tune-up or maintenance is recommended by most manufacturers to make sure your heating equipment is operating at peak efficiency, all safeties/controls are functioning properly and your heating equipment is ready for next winter.

Currently, Polsinello Fuels is offering the best prices of the year to perform annual tune-ups. Our customers can save $45 by having their annual tune-up performed in March or April. Call us today and start to save.


Random Energy Star Facts

Matt Polsinello - Tuesday, March 26, 2013

 

50% of your home’s energy consumption is used to heat and cool your home. This means improving the heating and air conditioning efficiency within your home is one of the best ways to reduce your overall energy costs. According to energystar.gov, there are some simple steps that you should take to improve your home’s energy efficiency.

  1. The most basic step is changing your air filter on a regular basis. A dirty filter can force your heating and air conditioning systems to work harder than necessary.

  2. An annual tune-up or maintenance should be performed on your heating and air conditioning systems. Annual maintenance ensures your equipment is working to its maximum efficiency. 

  3. Programmable thermostats are a great and affordable way to improve your home’s efficiency. These thermostats allow you to turn down your heating or air conditioning systems when your home is not occupied.

  4. Sealing and insulation your ductwork makes sure your heating and air conditioning systems send the air where it belongs. Unsealed ductwork can “leak” warm or cooled air into attics, crawlspaces and other places it does not belong.

  5. Install high efficiency, Energy Star rated heating and air conditioning systems. If your current systems are more than 10 years old, there could be great energy savings to be had by upgrading today.

  6. If you do install new heating and air conditioning systems, make sure it is done right. If you wish to save, a certified professional should be consulted to make sure your new system is properly sized, installed and functioning.

Polsinello Fuels is an expert in the field of Energy Efficiency and we have saved our customers thousands. If you would like to implement the recommendations above, we can help! Call us today and start to save.


Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Awareness

Matt Polsinello - Friday, March 22, 2013


 

Carbon Monoxide (CO) is sometimes referred to as the “silent killer” because it is a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas which can be fatal when inhaled. That is why Amanda’s Law was passed in New York in February 2010. The law requires all homes with a fuel burning appliance or attached garage to have Carbon Monoxide detectors installed. The CO detectors should be installed outside each sleeping area and on every level within the home in order to ensure proper detection. It is recommended that the CO detectors comply with UL2034 and are installed according to the manufacturer’s instructions. If you have any questions about Amanda’s Law or how Polsinello Fuels can help you become compliant, call us today.

In addition to installing carbon monoxide detectors throughout your home according to Amanda’s Law it is recommended that you follow the following recommendations to protect you and your family:

  1. Regularly test and replace your CO detectors every 5 to 7 years
  2. Inspect and service your heating system, vents, chimneys and flue annually by a professional
  3. Never run a car, generator, or fuel burning motors indoors or in a garage (even if the garage door is open)
  4. Ovens should not be used to heat your home 
  5. Barbeque grills should be used outdoors only
  6. Smoke Alarms should also be installed on every level of your home and outside all sleeping areas

If you have questions about your heating system, Carbon Monoxide or would like to schedule your heating system’s annual maintenance feel free to call Polsinello Fuels today at 518-465-3535.
