Based in Dallas, Texas, First Texas Homes has over 45 years of experience in quality home building. First Texas Homes has been a partner of Energy Star for more than 10 years, fully certified in meeting Energy Star’s requirements when developing energy efficient homes.

One idea that Energy Star shares to help keep utility bills down in the summertime is to perform a regular maintenance routine on your heating and air conditioning system. Changing out an air filter every three months keeps the air flowing freely so that the system doesn’t have to work as hard to cool the home.

If your HVAC system is over 12 years old, consider replacing it with an Energy Star certified unit. Newer HVAC systems can lessen an energy bill by over a hundred dollars a year. If it is too soon to replace or upgrade your unit, it may still be advisable to call a contractor to perform a tune-up.
