Your Power to Save
 
May 2017

 

Join the thousands of New Jersey homeowners, businesses and municipalities that have taken advantage of incentives offered by New Jersey's Clean Energy Program. These programs provide opportunities for you to save energy, money and help protect our climate and shoreline.

MAKE YOUR HOME YOUR SAFE SPACE

For individuals whose allergy symptoms range from a trifecta of sneezes to a chorus of sounds, you know you need to find any escape from triggers that will set off your allergies. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air quality (IAQ) is a greater health hazard than outdoor air pollution. Ensure that the air you breathe is clean and has been filtered properly, preventing the IAQ from deteriorating due to things like radon or mold and bacteria.

It takes a properly-installed ventilation system to make sure the air you breathe is truly up to par. A thorough assessment is the best way to evaluate the air quality in your home and identify any ventilation issues. A Home Performance with ENERGY STAR contractor can assess your home using special diagnostic tools and software, and make recommendations specific to your needs. Plus, there are rebates and low-interest loans available to help you get the work done. Learn more.

DON'T LET THIS SUMMER BE A BUMMER

 

As summer approaches do you know if your heating and cooling equipment is over 12 years old? If so, waiting until they break down may prove to be more costly and certainly inconvenient. If it has been awhile since your equipment has been tuned up, you should consider calling a contractor to test more than just your A/C unit. After all, you wouldn't neglect to take your beloved Chi-Chi to the vet just because she does not show signs of an internal struggle after eating balls of cat hair; would you?

Your A/C unit will continue to operate at its maximum efficiency for as long as you treat it with care:

  • CHANGE: your air filter every three months; as the filter becomes clogged with trapped particle your system needs to work harder to force "clean" air through - wasting energy and costing you more.
  • CLEAN: around the condenser unit (the part outside your home) to ensure that any landscaping is not growing too close. There should be a two-foot-no-grow zone around the unit.
  • CALL: for a tune-up. Have a contractor provide an annual tune-up of your heating and cooling equipment before you begin using the system.

Spring is a perfect time to make some adjustments and find great offers on equipment like your central A/C unit. Your contractor can help you select an energy-efficient model - and we can help with rebates, too! Your gas company may offer additional rebates for heating equipment.

SPECIALS FOR THE MODERN COOK

Large appliances also tend to go on sale on holiday weekends. So be sure to check circulars, emails from retailers and e-commerce websites for Memorial Day sales.

 

For a sweet deal on a refrigerator, the best time to buy is the month of May. New refrigerator models hit stores in the summer, which means last year's models have to go.

 

For the deepest savings on your electric bills, consider buying a unit with the ENERGY STAR certification. To make those deals even better, NJCEP offers rebates up to $75 on certain models. Plus, instead of moving that old unit to the basement, call us and we'll come pick it up for FREE and recycle it for you! There is a $50 recycling rebate available, so the savings will really add up!

About the New Jersey Clean Energy Program (NJCEP):

Provides financial and other incentives to the State's residential customers, businesses, local governments and schools that install high-efficiency or renewable energy technologies, thereby reducing energy usage, lowering customers' energy bills and reducing environmental impacts. In totality over the last fifteen years, New Jersey has invested more than $3.1 billion in approximately 1.5 million energy saving projects that have reduced electric use by approximately 7% - enough energy savings compounded over 15 years to power about 3.1 million homes. The program is authorized and overseen by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU), and its website is www.NJCleanEnergy.com.

Call us at 866-NJSMART (866-657-6278) for information on these and other energy-saving programs for your home or business.
