Earth Day in Portland, OR

Did you know that Earth Day is April 22nd?

We believe in being good stewards of the earth and that being environmentally conscious goes well beyond recycling plastic. Heating and cooling accounts for most of the energy that homeowner’s use over the course of a year. So, knowing how this impacts the environment is important. Here are some ways you can make the earth a priority, not just on Earth Day!

Schedule a tune-up.

Springtime is the best time to get caught up on your home maintenance to-do list. Scheduling a professional heating and cooling system tune-up should be a high priority for you. Why? Because regular preventative maintenance prolongs the life of your system and helps reduce energy waste. Tune-ups ensure your system will run at peak efficiency throughout the year, no matter what weather we have. Our team of technicians at Climate Control will inspect your system, ensure it is running at maximum energy efficiency, and clean or replace air filters. If we spot anything that needs to be adjusted or repaired, we will let you know. Professional maintenance gives you the peace of mind you need to not worry about unexpected breakdowns.

Install a programmable thermostat.

A faulty thermostat could lead to increased energy usage, which translates to strain on your system and over time, damage to the environment. Installing a programmable thermostat helps keep your home evenly heated and cooled all year long. These products allow users to program it to the desired temperature, and then adjust it as you want – even when you’re gone from the home! Here’s an example. You’ll be gone at work from 9am to 5pm. So, program the thermostat to turn down a few degrees during that time away, then program it to turn back up an hour before you get back. That way, you can come home to a warm and comfortable home. These thermostats can be used in tandem with almost any existing heating and cooling system that you have in your home. Contact us today to see which product could work for you.

Whether it’s taking care of your heating and cooling system, making a conscious effort to recycle or compost in your home, or ride your bike instead of drive, Earth Day is a great time to think about what things you can do to help conserve the environment.
