Larry & Sons Offers Tips on How to Save Energy Costs

HAGERSTOWN, Md., Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Although temperatures are seemingly warm one day and cold on the next, winter is hardly over. Larry & Sons, a leading air conditioning, heating, and plumbing company serving Hagerstown and Frederick is offering homeowners tips on ways to save energy and keep utility bills low for the remainder of the winter.

“Swapping out light bulbs, turning on ceiling fans, and replacing air filters are a few easy ways to save energy,” says Eric Corbett, president and owner of Larry & Sons. “Even the smallest problems with your furnace or inconsistencies in heating effectiveness throughout your home can cause your energy bill to skyrocket during winter.”

Corbett offers the following tips on how to save energy and lower utility bills during winter:

  • Seal the doors and windows. Homes are built to protect you from the elements. However, over time the seals around doors and windows can become weak. You may find that the seals between your doors and window frames are not as tight as they once were when the home was brand new. Weakened seals allow cold air to enter and warm air to exit. Therefore, heating your home isn’t working if your seals are weak.
  • Run your fans. Turning on the indoor fans will help to move air around the room. This evens out the temperature in a room instead of the hot air accumulating near the ceiling. It also helps to eliminate any cold spots in corners of the home.
  • Swap old bulbs for LED lights. Swapping out old incandescent lights for LED lighting can save you extra money over time. In addition to being more energy efficient, LED lights last up to 50 times longer than incandescent lights and up to five times longer than fluorescent ones. This saves you time and money replacing burnt out bulbs.
  • Turn down your thermostat and water heater if you’re leaving home. If you are traveling, turn down the thermostat and water heater before leaving your home. Don’t completely shut them off, just turn them down to save energy. If you shut your thermostat and water heater off, pipes can freeze without sufficient warmth.
  • Install a programmable thermostat. A programmable thermostat allows you to set the temperature for various times of the day so that your furnace turns on to warm your house before you wake up, or it shuts off to save energy when everyone is asleep.
  • Call a professional. Your HVAC is a complex system. If it’s malfunctioning and runs without repair, it could potentially lead to greater damage and a more expensive repair. Invest in routine low-cost maintenance and tune-ups to save money in the long run.
  • Clean your furnace filter. The simplest thing to do is to replace your air filter often. An HVAC unit drives air through a filter into the ductwork to the rest of the house. This keeps your air clean and filtered for impurities. As the filter removes impurities and dust from the air, it blocks airflow causing the furnace to work harder, which draws more energy.

Larry & Sons Offers Comprehensive Drain Checkups and Cleanings

You may think your home has weathered the heavy rains, but it pays to be sure

 

HAGERSTOWN, MD. September 7, 2016 –Torrential rains have put the strain on homes in many parts of the country. You may think your home has weathered the storm, but it pays to be sure. Small cracks or puddles can become major, and put your entire home at risk.

 

Larry and Sons, a leading air conditioning, heating and plumbing company serving Hagerstown and Frederick, Maryland and surrounding counties for nearly 50 years, can inspect entire drainage systems with video camera pipe inspection.

 

 “Drains and sewer lines in homes are immensely important, removing a large volume of waste water from your property each day,” says Eric Corbett, president and owner of Larry & Sons. “Weather like we’ve had this year puts an immense strain on these systems. Small problems can become big ones very quickly, and can even compromise the very foundation of a structure. We offer annual checkups on both sewer systems and septic systems, as well as comprehensive drain cleanings.”

 

Plumbing systems supply both hot and cold water to various fixtures and faucets, and also remove waste water from your home. Drainpipes are particularly susceptible to clogs and other blockages because of how much use they get, as well as the various substances that go down them. Using the most advanced technologies, the experts at Larry and Sons can detect and repair any issues in your plumbing system. Hair, grease, hard water and root penetration may all, in their own ways, lead to blocked drains. And heavy rainfall only strains the system and speeds the process.

 

It helps to use hair and food stoppers throughout your home to reduce the amount of hair and food scraps that end up in your drainpipes. But sometimes, clogged drains are inevitable. Larry and Sons treats the problem quickly and professionally, so you can have your functional home back.

Eric Corbett, Owner of Local Business Larry & Sons, Interviewed on CNBC

Larry & Sons’ owner and president, Eric Corbett discussed how the lessons learned from CEO Warrior helped his home service business grow.

HAGERSTOWN, Md. August 10, 2016 – When CNBC’s “The Nightly Business Report” was looking for participants of the CEO Warrior mentoring programs, they found the perfect candidate in Eric Corbett, owner of Larry and Sons Inc., a leading home service provider serving homeowners in the Tri-State area.

On the “Bright Ideas” segment of the program that aired Friday, August 5, Corbett discussed the business lessons he learned at Mike Agugliaro’s CEO Warrior seminar and his subsequent experience at an intensive four day training workshop, where he received additional insights into effective business strategies as well as the benefit of ongoing consultation.

Corbett can attest to the fact that it takes a certain savvy to be chosen for a widely watched and highly respected network business program like “The Nightly Business Report.” As he told host Tyler Mathisen, he understood the value of participating in an advanced management training session that offered practical lessons for further growing a business. The time, money and effort Corbett invested in the program paid immediate dividends. After active participation in the program, he expanded his payroll from 22 employees to 30 and saw his revenues increase by half a million dollars annually.

“CEO Warrior has positioned Larry & Sons for tremendous growth moving forward,” Corbett said. “As a local company that is a proud part of our community, we’re pleased to be able to share that success with a national audience as well as with area homeowners that continue to support us here. As a result, we’ve also been able to make a positive impact on our local economy.”

With more than 66 years in business as a leading provider of plumbing, heating, cooling repair and installation of water heaters, sewer systems, drain services and water treatment systems, Corbett had the experience and expertise required of participants in CEO Warrior’s specialized training programs. As owner and operator of a family-owned business that was founded by his father in 1960, Corbett was keenly aware of the benefits offered for consummate entrepreneurs like himself.
