If you live in a typical American home, you probably spend more than you have to on energy bills – sometimes significantly more – due to inefficiencies that can be greatly reduced with a little planning and investment.

Nothing beats the feeling of sitting or walking on a warm floor in the wintertime, and only one type of heating system delivers that luxury: radiant heat.

It’s been estimated that the majority of air conditioning systems in the U.S. will have to be replaced soon.

Freon is considered a greenhouse gas and harms the environment when released into the air.
