As summer begins, it’s time to turn over a new leaf and give your home an energy transformation. Here are some tips to get you started.

Improve comfort while staying efficient

An energy-efficient indoor air cleaner, such as the AccuClean from American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning, an Ingersoll Rand brand, removes up to 99.98 percent of allergens down to 0.1 micron in size, making it 100 times more effective than a standard one-inch throwaway filter.


Choose energy efficient products


If you’re looking for new energy-efficient products such as doors, heating and cooling systems and windows, ensure they are labeled with the Energy Star designation. The EPA’s Energy Star program was created to reduce the nation’s energy consumption.

Manage energy efficiency anywhere

Nexia Home Intelligence, also a brand of Ingersoll Rand, combines wireless technology with simple Web access. You can use it to reduce energy consumption and costs by putting your cooling system into an energy savings mode while you’re not there.
