According to the Department of Energy (DOE), approximately 50% of a typical home's energy use is dedicated to heating and cooling. That equates to more than $22 billion per year spent on cooling alone. With that much being spent, it's a smart idea to educate yourself on the most economical operating systems available.
Although there are variations, the majority of households have the following options:
- Gas heat - propane or natural gas
- Electric heat - electric furnace, heat pump or geothermal heat pump
- Wood heat - fireplace, wood stove, outdoor furnace, pellets
- Electric cooling - window units, heat pumps also cool
With all these options, it can be quite confusing. Carroll Electric is here to help. We have the training and expertise to discuss which system(s) is right for you and your energy goals. Call 800-432-9720 to schedule a free consultation.
