March is designated as Month of the Military Caregiver and an opportunity to honor these selfless members of our communities. We at Energy Savers wholeheartedly salute those spouses, parents, children, family, friends, neighbors and social organizations who care for our nation’s wounded, ill or injured military members.

Caregiving, in general, is a growing category for Americans, especially as the population ages and most caregivers do it while balancing additional work and family obligations. By dedicating themselves to such a responsibility, caregivers are contributing to our veterans’ health and well-being, enabling rehabilitation and recovery and improving quality of life.

According to Rand, there are 5.5 million people in the United States providing care for veterans. Encourage the caregiver to take care of himself or herself too. Many caregivers inevitably put individual needs last, often resulting in health problems of their own. Based on studies, an easy way to assist them is through support groups where they can find resources and emotional support. If you know a family in this situation offer to take care of errands, childcare, landscaping tasks or spend time with the veteran to give caregivers respite.

If you belong to a charitable organization, a thoughtful and meaningful service project might be to “gift” an HVAC service plan to a caregiver and his or her family.

A Priority Service Plan from Energy Savers, for example, includes preventative maintenance checkups of the heating system and the cooling system, priority scheduling, no overtime fees and discounts if repairs are needed. A NATE-certified technician inspects, cleans and lubricates various components of the system and can prevent small issues from turning into big problems. This easily gives the caregiver and often, head of the household, one less worry.  

A service plan also ensures a home’s heating and cooling is operating as efficiently as possible and keeping utility costs in check. A “healthy” HVAC system also contributes to healthy indoor air quality, often a necessity for anyone with respiratory illnesses. These simple measures provide immeasurable peace of mind for homeowners and caregivers who depend on consistent temperatures for the comfort of their loved ones. A well-maintained system is less likely to suddenly break down, leaving a family in sweltering heat or freezing temperatures with an unexpected bill. Nothing wrecks a family budget or ruins plans like a surprise repair emergency.

At Energy Savers, we want to share our knowledge with you by taking care of you and your home. Improve your air quality, as well as assure your HVAC system is healthy and able to reliably serve you and your family for the long term by making a small investment in a priority service plan.
