Is increased energy efficiency in 2019 one of your New Year’s resolutions? It might seem harder than sticking to a new exercise plan. The good news is you can reduce your energy use and decrease your spending with these tips for more efficient heating and cooling.
The first and simplest step to your HVAC using less energy is to change the air filter. A clogged air filter will only make the system work harder to pull in air. A clean filter will keep your air cleaner, prevent damage to the heating and cooling equipment, and keep your utility bills down.
A smart thermostat lets you control the temperature of your home while it enables you to control how much energy you use. They offer extensive programming capabilities and the ability to access temperature control as well as energy use information remotely via a Wi-Fi connection. Your home will be more comfortable, and you’ll save money by only heating and cooling when you need it.
Nothing keeps your current HVAC system running like it should more than regular service. A maintenance agreement will ensure it gets the TLC it needs to stay tuned up and energy efficient in the spring before cooling season and in the fall before it’s time to kick on the furnace.
Do you need a new heating and cooling system? If your energy efficiency is on the decline and your utility bills are on the rise, it could mean your equipment has reached the end of its usefulness. Talk to a reliable HVAC technician to find out if you could benefit from an upgrade.
