Energy costs are rising, and local homeowners are starting to think about affordable ways to keep their homes and families comfortable through the winter. As a family-made company, Bovio Rubino Service treats our customers as people, not numbers, and we’ve been helping improve New Jersey homes for nearly 50 years with honesty, high-quality service, and heating and cooling expertise.
Here are some of the best ways you can take action today to reduce the pain of high energy costs, with help from the local company that knows HVAC, like nobody’s business.
Preparing Your Heating System for the Long Winter
Getting your heating system into fighting shape before you need to rely on it every day will pay off in the long run. At Bovio Rubino Service, we always recommend scheduling a maintenance service in the fall to ensure any failing parts are replaced, screws are tightened, moving parts are properly lubricated, and air filters are changed. This simple step will go a long way to prevent your heating system from breaking down unexpectedly and will also reduce how hard your system will need to work to provide heat.
Energy Efficient HVAC Upgrades
You can also invest in making your existing heating system more efficient by improving your furnace controls. Switching to a smart thermostat is a simple upgrade that can save you on your heating bills without having to change any of your home comfort preferences or habits. Smart thermostats like the ecobee learn from your daily heating system use and automatically optimize the settings to reduce energy usage. Plus, these thermostats are often wifi-enabled, meaning you can control your home temperature from anywhere your smartphone can get a signal!
Add a Ductless Mini Split
Do you ever find you need to turn the temperature up on your thermostat so that those hard-to-reach rooms get some heat? Adding a ductless mini split heat pump to those tough-to-condition rooms or recently added square footage is an energy-efficient way to supplement your existing system and take some of the pressure off of your furnace or boiler.
Save on Heating System Upgrades Before Winter
If your heating system is more than ten years old, has required more than two repairs in the last couple of years, or your annual fall heating maintenance has uncovered a catastrophic repair that will cost more than 50% of a new system, it may be time to upgrade to a more efficient heating system. Upgrading your furnace or boiler to a high-efficiency option will ensure you use less heating oil (if applicable), and save you on your winter heating bills. And there are multiple ways to save on the cost of the installation here in South Jersey!

Financing Available for Home Performance, HVAC, Plumbing, and Electrical Services
While planning for a home upgrade is ideal, HVAC emergencies are most often the triggers for these kinds of upgrades, which won’t always align with your own financial plans. But an unexpected furnace breakdown or plumbing emergency shouldn’t have to prevent you from making the right improvements when you need them the most, which is why Bovio Rubino Service offers financing through Payzer. Many of our services qualify for 24 months with 0% interest financing.
