7 Simple Energy Efficient Home Maintenance Tricks to Save Money

 

  1. Improve the efficiency and performance of appliances like your dishwasher, refrigerator, washing machine, and exhaust vent by dusting and cleaning debris out of the vents, grates and coils.
  2. Letting your clothes air dry, shortening your dryer’s cycle time, and using the dryer the evening to avoid generating extra heat in your home during the day are all great ways to save energy in your laundry room.
  3. Circulate the air in your home with ceiling fans (that are dusted and cycling in a counterclockwise rotation for maximum efficiency) instead of running the air conditioner at lower temperatures to save big on your energy bill. Each ceiling fan can save you up to $165 over its lifetime, costing only a penny/hour of use, whereas your AC runs up an average of 36¢ per hour.
  4. Check your air filters every two months — replacing dirty air filters can reduce your energy usage by as much as 15%.
  5. Save up to $200/year by sealing air leaks in places like your attic, doors & windows, air ducts, and around your pipes, vents, and outlets.
  6. Low-flow nozzles on your shower heads and garden hoses conserve water (in just a 10 minute shower, you’ll save around 5 gallons of water!) and lower your water bill.
  7. Turn your water heater’s high setting down below 120°F to save money and extend the life of your water heater.

After showing up at midnight on a Saturday when our system crashed a few months ago (and I was not a customer then) I thought I would try a maintenance package. Just had the first service and it was a pleasure. Billy was our man and he was friendly and first-class. I also appreciated the scheduling and email/text msgs with updates. All well done.

Billy recently serviced my AC for the first time. He called me when he was on his way and arrived promptly after. From start to finish he was very friendly and courteous. He was also very thorough and even took videos of the unit in my ceiling to show me exactly what he was doing and why.

My husband and had polar bear come out to service our ac unit. Travis Campbell was the tech who came out. He was exceptional, very professional and a great personality. He was very informative and helpful in explaining the procedure and what needed me to be done. We are very happy, especially with him and the service we received.

Today, Roemaine and his assistant came to our house to service our AC. We were very impressed with the way they worked. Roemaine was very professional, respectful, and helpful. Going way beyond our expectations to ensure that we were very satisfied and happy. This is a busy time for us as we prepare for the holidays but they were so unobtrusive, that we were able to get on with our tasks as if they were not there. Thanks very much for such great service, Roemaine and Polar Bear. Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas, and continued productivity and prosperity in 2024.

I recently had the pleasure of experiencing outstanding service from Polar Bear AC, and I can't speak highly enough about the technician, Billy. From start to finish, the service provided was excellent.What set Billy apart was his attention to detail and commitment to ensuring our family's safety and comfort. As he conducted the maintenance check on our AC unit, he took the time to explain each step thoroughly.What stood out was Billy's consideration for my family, especially my young kids. He asked questions and made sure that all safety measures were in place and that there were no potential hazards for children in the house coming from the AC, like mold or smells.His expertise and knowledge were evident with his recommendations on how to lower my electric bill. I highly recommend Polar Bear AC for their exceptional service.

Even though Vic is new to Polar bear and Appliance doctors he showed his many skills and great level of knowledge about the complicated issues I have been facing with a commercial fridge and freezer.The problems were swiftly diagnosed and when new issues arised he quickly tackled them with professionalism and explained everything in a simple way that was easy to understand.Larry also joined and is an exceptionally knowledgeable and experienced, witty guy who was great to work with.Thanks so much for the help!
Polar Bear did an entire system replacement in my home, everything from the consultation with Kieran through to the installation with Jerome, Fabian & Marcelo was handled professionally and they kept me updated daily with what they were doing.I was given some options to choose from and went with a new Bryant system with an Ecobee thermostat and am very happy with the new system and how efficient it is.Thank you Polar Bear for your great service!Scott

Everything was top-notch! Octavia and Billy were excellent in explaining and getting the job done. I couldn't have asked for anything more -I'm very happy with my first Polar Bear experience!
Leeron, the technician, was attentive and his work was clean and tidy. The installers, Tony and Natan, were great - very professional, diligent, polite and friendly. They went that extra mile to accommodate our personal circumstances. Kieran, the comfort technician, was very responsive and highly professional. His outstanding customer centered approach through the whole process ensured we were both informed and satisfied at all times. We would recommend Polar Bear to anyone considering a home installation or service maintenance.

The technician, Romaine, was very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. The only downside was it took 2 days before they could come because they were so busy but when they did arrive, their work was extremely good.
I have just had a totally professional interaction with 5 of Polar Bear Air Conditioning Staff.They were Octavia, Billy, Dwayne, Genome, and Tony.Octavia and Billy are two of their Service Technicians, Dwayne is a Installation consultant ( I think) and Gerome and Tony are Installation Technicians. All of them were professional, courteous, and extremely knowledgeable!I am very pleased with the work they did.

They need more technicians as I waited most of a day to have someone come and service my 2 ACs only to be told they wouldn't make it that day. They did reschedule to a Saturday morning and this time the tech was right on time and did a great job. He was very personable and showed me what was wrong and that it had been corrected. The tech deserves 5 stars but Polar Bear lost one for the wait.

Roemaine is a very pleasant and professional individual. He was proactive by calling ahead so that I could make arrangements to meet him for this emergency situation. He was punctual, upfront with the diagnosis and costs and explained my options. This made me feel like he was genuinely customer focused. Roemaine and his colleague resolved the issue promptly; big kudos to both of them.

These guys did a fantastic job, from start to finish. First the team of two introduced themselves and gave an explanation of what work they were going to do.This was a job well done from the correct size unit for the room to a neat installation and oh they even cleaned up before they left. Thanks again Polar Bear for an excellent job.

I am so grateful to Polar Bear Air Conditioning. I was smelling a combination of stale cigarette smoke and a wet dog for approximately 2 weeks and then the A/C unit stopped working on a particularly hot Friday night. I called Polar Bear and Mr. Gilbert Smith came out and he would not leave until he got the A/C to start cooling. He gave me his phone number and asked me to call him if it stopped cooling. Mr. Dwayne Ashley called me on Saturday morning and answered all my questions and reassured me that the unit would be fixed ASAP. My initial appointment was set for Tuesday morning but Mr. Dwayne called me on Monday morning to say that there was a cancellation. I had taken my vehicle to be serviced and Mr. Dwayne came to me to get the key to open the apartment. When I returned to the apartment, I was surprised with how well the team had cleaned up. Don't get me wrong, I still swept and mopped the floors, but it looked like what I would regularly do at the end of the week. Mr. Dwayne came by on his way home to collect payment. At the end of the day, I checked all the boxes for Polar Bear and I would highly recommend them to anyone. As a matter of fact, I have already recommended them to two people. Well done Polar Bear and thanks a million.
Romaine was amazing, very professional and responsive.He helped me out on a late friday afternoon and did not leave until my AC was up an running. Amazing, friendly service!The gentleman that he was training was also very professional.
Tyrone and Travis are professional, knowledgeable, honest, hard working and very pleasant to deal with. They came to install new thermostat units in the house and spent time to make sure that everything was set up properly and working with no issues. I highly recommend the 'T&T' team to all new and existing customers at Polar Bear. Thank you again for amazing service! Bibi & Nina
The team from Polar Bear Company came to replace our air conditioning unit, and they did an excellent job. From start to finish, their service was professional and efficient. The technicians arrived on time, well-prepared, and knowledgeable. They handled the installation with expertise, paying attention to detail and ensuring optimal functionality. Not only were they skilled, but they were also friendly and courteous, addressing my questions and concerns with clear explanations. Overall, the Polar Bear Company exceeded my expectations in terms of quality, efficiency, and customer service. I highly recommend their services to anyone in need of AC replacement or related work.

I recently had my air conditioning unit installed by Polar Bear Air Conditioning in Cayman Kai. I was very pleased with the service I received. The workmen, Jerome, Tony, and Nathan, were all professional and courteous. They arrived on time and were dressed in their uniforms. They laid out carpeting where they would be walking inside the house to avoid leaving debris or making a mess. They worked clean and kept the space tidy. They were polite and provided me a good understanding of the work they completed as well as showed me all pieces of equipment. They emailed me a jpg image of each piece of equipment's information plate so that I could record it in my home management software, as requested.Here are some specific details about the work they did:They installed 3 new high-efficiency air conditioning units that are much more energy-efficient (26 SEER) than my old units.They cleaned and disinfected the air ducts, as well as replaced previously installed flex ducts with rigid duct work that is superior in efficiency and durability.They installed new filters to help keep the air clean and free of allergens.They explained the operation of the new units to me and answered all of my questions.They cleaned up after themselves and left my home in good condition.I would highly recommend Polar Bear Air Conditioning to anyone in need of air conditioning installation or service. They are a professional and reliable company that provides excellent customer service.

Our ac stopped working a few weeks ago and Polar Bear sent Roemaine and Tyrone to diagnose the problem. Roemaine and Tyrone very quickly identified the problem and communicated with me. It turns out the best option was replacing the condensing unit which Paul quoted within a matter of minutes and they had expert installation team (Tony and Jerome) complete late in the afternoon with short notice. I’m very happy with their work!

Tony and Jerome were such amazing technicians during my first service with Polar Bear AC! They were diligent and very hardworking while also being extremely careful and considerate with the home during an AC unit dismantlement and full new installation of a downstairs home AC unit. They were very clean and tidy as they worked with protective carpet through the house and cleaned up throughly when the job was done. They were an example of best kind of people who taking pride and care as they completed their work. They did such an excellent job, i couldn't recommend them enough for future jobs!!!!! thank you Tony and Jerome for a job well done.

From booking the appointment, reminder notifications, calls prior to arrival, details of who to expect to the very staff who answer the calls, the service has remained exceptional. Value for money and the quality of work performed has always been at a high standard. Would certainly continue to use their services and recommend them.

I have, over the years been trying to find a reliable, professional A/C maintenance and repair company. I have tried a few. That search is now over after using Polar Bear. Billy and Jerry were absolutely a pleasure to work with. Knowledgeable and professional from the initial diagnosis to the final repair. I highly recommend this company and the team that came to do work on my AC. Tim.

Great work. I received an email and also a call from the dispatcher that the tech would be calling me, and sure enough, the tech (Simon) called shortly after that to let me know he was on his way which was very much appreciated. The customer service from all of the team and updates was spot on, and Simon was very thorough and very knowledgeable. He was also very courteous and professional. I rate Polar Bear as the best company in town. Great work!

Polar Bear's service and response was amazing! Nicole who answered my phone call and scheduled me was extremely friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable! The Technician assigned to me was Simon and he was also extremely friendly and very knowledgeable. Within a minute of looking at my system he knew what the errors and issues were! He was able to fix one of the two problems that day, and then came scheduled and came the following day to fix the remaining issue. He was perfectly on time and the courtesy call before arrival both times before arriving was a welcome touch as it made sure that I was ready.Will continue using polar bear for all my HVAC needs! 5*

My experience with Polar Bear has been awesome!!!! From the beginning, the office staff were so professional and kind, then receiving my AC quote, the gentleman has been very prompt in his response time—, the kind of employee that puts customer first and has such a nice and an approachable attitude, very patient in answering my questions and providing guidance as required by me- customer focus completely, then as if that wasn’t enough to convince me to move my AC maintenance and installation to Polar Bear; the technicians that attended to my AC installation provided such excellent service— what stood out was how they used a carpet that was placed on my floor to avoid making any mess on my floor and whatever mess they did make, the technician used their broom to remove it. I know this message is long but I really wanted to express my THANK YOU and appreciation for such excellent customer service that I’ve experienced by Polar Bear — you have won me as a customer!! THANK YOU! Keep up the excellent customer service!!! Looking forward to building a relationship with you as a new customer.

I am very pleased with the service that was provided by Polar Bear. I had an issue where the ac was not working at one of my rental properties after hours on a weekend. Rohan came all the way out to East End at 10pm and worked on the issue to get the system back up and running. He was very thorough and explained the issue in detail, and the measures I needed to take to prevent it from reoccurring. Excellent customer service
