An electric hot water heater is a great alternative to a gas water heater because the more you optimize energy efficiency in your home, the more money you’ll be saving on energy bills (and carbon emissions)!

When it comes time for a replacement or an upgrade to your old oil or gas or air conditioning system, consider heat pumps to get your home off fossil fuels, improve indoor air quality, and use less energy. Air source or ground source (geothermal) heat pumps are quiet, efficient and clean; they cool in summer and heat in winter and they run on electricity.

YOUR NEIGHBORS ARE SAVING
“Bedford 2020 performed a post-analysis of what we saved after undergoing the renovations. The year after installing the new boiler and insulation, we used roughly 30 percent less energy and saved 50 percent in overall heating costs. We ended up saving considerable money and are continuing to save even more.”
-Andy Chintz, a Katonah resident.
