2 Ideas You Can Steal from Heating and Air Conditioning System Installation

Heating and Cooling

Looking for some easy heating and air conditioning system hacks?

Heating and air conditioning system installations involve dozens of meticulous steps. One skipped step, one crossed wire, or one tiny mistake, and the whole system won't work properly. This level of complication is why the installation process should always be left to the experts - they'll get it right and save you a headache.

But there are other aspects of home heating and cooling that the typical homeowner can easily handle on their own. Here are 2 home improvement ideas you can steal from heating and air conditioning system installation pros:

1. Get rid of air leaks.

When your heating and air conditioning system is being installed, serviced, or inspected, your HVAC professional will check your air ducts for leaks. This is a great way to improve the performance and efficiency of your furnace and air conditioner. While the technician is sealing your ducts, you can replace the weather stripping around your doors and windows to further reduce air leakage around your home.

2. Improve your insulation.

Your heating and air conditioning system service provider may insulate certain parts of your HVAC system, such as air ducts that run through your garage, basement, or attic. While they are insulating your HVAC system, you could wrap your water heater with a specialized sheet of insulation to reduce the cost of heating your water.

These two simple energy-saving steps could leave a large impact on your utility bills for years to come. There are many other things you can do to seal in the air your equipment is either heating or cooling.
