Fortunately, help is at hand. Put Lee Company on your team. Keep the home fires burning because you like the fireplace – not because you need the light and heat!

Vanquish vampires with:

  • Surge protectors: A surge protector, or surge suppressor, is designed to help protect electrical systems, electronics and appliances from power fluctuations. These fluctuations could come from storms, downed power lines, brownouts, or even the on-off cycle of electronics in your home.
  • Whole home generators: These generators keep the lights on and the refrigerator running even when the electrical system gets zapped. They’re especially useful if you use critical healthcare equipment at home or run a business out of your home.

Lighten up

Never come home to a dark house. Lighting automation and photocell controls give you the ability to program your lighting for safety and energy conservation. And, the power of electricity extends beyond the walls of your home! Keep vampires at bay with accent and landscape lighting. Learn more. When it comes to protecting you and your home, Lee Company has a host of bright ideas.

When was the last time you took a good look at your windows? Not through your windows – but at them? If you see wood rot, condensation, cracked caulking and other issues, you could be throwing energy dollars out the window.

Next, take a fresh look at your doors. If you see light through the cracks, that’s more wasted energy. Is it drafty by those windows and doors? That’s not good either.

Simply put, when enough windows and doors have cracks, crevices and other issues, your house is basically missing a wall.

Energy vampires think that’s great. We don’t. At Lee Company, we’re dedicated to making your home as comfortable and energy efficient as possible. Our energy services specialists will come out and look at everything that affects the energy in your home, from appliances and HVAC systems to insulation, windows and doors. After assessing your unique situation, we’ll suggest how to save the most on your utility bills.

For example, your windows and doors may simply need caulking. We can do that. If you need new windows, we handle that, too. Lee Company offers high-efficiency windows with ultraviolet protection molecularly bonded into the glass. These beautiful windows reflect heat back to its source, so the heat stays out in the summer and in during the winter. (And they’re almost maintenance free!)

Energy vampires love the dark. They thrive in the areas of the house you avoid, like the crawl space or attic. How do you know if vampires consider your house Home Sweet Home? Start by looking for these clear signs:

  • High utility bills – gas and electric
  • Hot and cold spots in your home
  • Hot or cold areas around doors and windows
  • Musty smells or moisture in the crawl space or basement

Unfortunately, other warning signs, such as sagging ductwork or insulation gaps, are frighteningly easy to miss.

Trick the vampires.

With our Insight smart glasses technology, Lee Company virtually takes you along as we inspect your ductwork and insulation. If repairs are needed, you’ll see how we seal the duct system, install higher R-value insulation or add insulation to the attic.

Treat yourself.

When you want to save money on utility bills, it’s natural to think about heating or electricity. You could turn the heat down, buy a programmable thermostat, use timers, turn lights off when you’re not using them. Those are all great ideas. Here’s another possibility you might not have considered: Update your water heater. Now. Before it breaks.

Planning ahead gives you clear advantages:

  1. By proactively replacing the water heater, you’ll have time to do more research and find the option that works best for your budget.
  2. You’ll be able to schedule installation at a time that works best for your schedule.
  3. You’ll avoid the expensive damage, frustration and trauma caused when a water heater bursts.

Bonus! You’ll also send energy vampires packing.

Vanquish the vampires

Energy vampires love homes with old water heaters. They love watching your money go down the drain, every time you have to run water for a long time to get it hot.

Fortunately, you don’t have to waste water or shiver in the shower! Tankless water heaters with recirculation deliver valuable energy savings, typically providing 96% efficiency, compared to the 62% efficiency rating of a standard water heater.

Cold winter, hot water

Now’s the time to prepare! Talk to Lee Company about tankless water heaters, recirculation options, or the hybrid electric heat pump – another great choice for cutting your water heating costs. Lee Company has been helping customers make their homes more comfortable and energy efficient for over 70 years. We’ll find the solution that’s right for you.
