Everyone loves to save money – by utilizing these 5 major energy saving tips with your HVAC unit, you can rake in the savings this fall and winter! These tips also prevent HVAC repairs in the future. The average energy consumed by heating and cooling in a home is close to 50%. Making the right changes to your HVAC system is the best option to save money and energy.
The Power of Fans
Fans in a home play an intricate part in reducing energy while helping heat a home. Reversing the airflow of your ceiling fan draws the warm air up and moves it throughout rooms more evenly. This allows your thermostat to accurately read the temperature of a room and not give false readings to your HVAC unit.
Another energy saving tip is installing a programmable thermostat. You can install and setup a thermostat yourself or schedule an HVAC service call for a professional to install the thermostat. Along with programmable thermostats is the option to set up a zoning system with multiple thermostats.
A clean filter is a must on the energy saving tip list! Filters are responsible for trapping and eliminating all sorts of pollutants in your indoor air. During an HVAC service call, a professional can change your filter or clean it if it is a reusable filter. Filters are inexpensive items available to bring about savings in the future!
HVAC maintenance performed twice a year is a great energy saving tip that can save you additional money in the long run. HVAC units that aren’t properly maintained have a higher chance of breakdowns and costly HVAC repairs.
An HVAC service call allows a professional to inspect your ductwork for leaks. Any air that is pumped into your home can escape through cracks or damage inside your vents and ducts. Our technicians can investigate and fix any damaged ducts during a typical HVAC repair so that you can start saving energy and money right away!
