In looking back at the last twelve months, it comes at minimal surprise that folks are looking for ways to further protect their biggest investments—including that of their Hudson Valley homes.
This presents a great opportunity to invest any stimulus money and/or tax refund you may have received this year back into your residence. Not only will you increase your home comfort almost instantly, but it’ll provide you long-term energy savings—and some high-efficiency equipment purchases may give you a tax break for the next year as well!

Plus, we also offer affordable service plans to protect your new equipment on parts and repairs for years to come.
Here are some ways that Depew Energy can help you make the most of your investment.
If you can’t take one more hot summer in your home, central air conditioning is an outstanding investment now and for summers to come.
Another bonus: Adding central air conditioning can improve your home’s resale value, and help it sell more quickly. According to one study, adding central A/C can boost a home’s sale price by 2.5%. That helps you not only get a return on your investment, but it can also give your home a competitive advantage over other comparable homes in your area.
If your home uses a boiler for heating and thus does not have ductwork, you may believe you only have two not-so-great solutions. One is the spend thousands of dollars to add ductwork then spend thousands of dollars more to add central air conditioning. The other is inefficient, unattractive, light-blocking window air conditioning units that inevitably let in dust, pollen, and bugs.
However, with ductless mini-splits, you get efficient, cool comfort that you can program and zone for maximum efficiency. It’s far more affordable than central air conditioning and much more comfortable and efficient than window units too.
If your water heater is about 10 years old, now is the time to upgrade it. First, it’s nearing the end of its life expectancy. Second, it’s becoming less efficient with each passing day. Much like you stop sinking money into repairing an old car, the same holds true for your water heater.
Propane-powered water heaters cost 30% less to operate than comparable electric models. Go with a tankless model and that figure increases to 50%, plus you get endless hot water, on-demand!
With the arrival of Spring, you likely don’t want to think about home heating. But using this opportunity to upgrade to a high-efficiency furnace or boiler will reward you with energy and money savings for years to come—besides, the fall season will be here once again before you know it!
Installing it now means you’ll be ready no matter when that cool weather returns.
