Your Tax Refund Can Save You Money

Your 2015 tax refund can give you years of savings in the future on your electric bills. Romark A/C and Plumbing wants you to spend your tax refund wisely.
According to the IRS, the average tax refund is somewhere in the neighborhood of $3,000 or more. On average, Uncle Sam also owes some type of refund to approximately 70 percent of those filing. Have you thought about how you are going to spend this year’s refund?

Selecting a New Water Heater

Selecting a New Water Heater

When selecting a new water heater for your home, choose a water heating system that will not only provide enough hot water but also that will do so energy efficiently, saving you money. This includes considering the different types of water heaters available and determining the right size and fuel source for your home.

Types of Water Heaters

It’s a good idea to know the different types of water heaters available before you purchase one:
