This St. Patrick’s Day in Pittsburgh, people will pack the streets in a sea of green for the annual parade. Gilley himself isn’t Irish, or the luckiest bird at times, but he’s all about green in support of the environment. Did you know that Gillece Services is “green screened?” This seal of approval marks us as a green company that takes steps to help the environment through educating homeowners, providing energy-efficient products and services, and practicing preservation in our daily lives. If you’re wondering how you can make your home a greener place past St. Patrick’s Day, here are some ways we can help:
Energy Efficient Home Comfort System
Heating and cooling systems are estimated to consume as much as half of a home’s overall energy. If you have an inefficient home comfort system, then the energy waste may be worse as well as the environmental impact from gas emissions. High efficiency furnaces, boilers, heat pumps, and air conditioners are all options for improving energy efficiency and heating and cooling performance and are available through Gillece.
Providing better control of your heating and cooling systems, a programmable thermostat helps to save energy as well as money on utility bills. When a home’s temperature is raised or lowered several degrees for several hours a day based on pre-programmed settings, energy is saved on a daily basis for significant savings over the period of a year.
Water Filtration System
Not only do water filtration systems help to improve the quality of drinking water in a home, but they are a green-friendly option as a way to reduce bottled water use. A water filtration system filters out chemicals and other potentially harmful contaminants to deliver clean and great-tasting water through your tap so you won’t have to resort to bottled water for safer quality.
