What Can I Do to Improve My HVAC Energy Costs?
One of the most common questions our residential services team receives is how to reduce heating and cooling costs.
Of course, homeowners want to heat and cool their homes without paying an arm and a leg. And believe it or not, it is possible to save quite a bit on your energy bill with a few simple steps.
What Changes Can I Make to Lower My HVAC Costs?
The easiest change to make is to adjust your typical home temperature by one or two degrees. This small change can make a nice dent in your energy bill without a big sacrifice on your part. You may not even notice the difference!
What Might Cause My HVAC System to Operate Inefficiently?
In addition to adjusting the temperature of your home, there are a few steps you can take to make sure your HVAC system is operating efficiently. The following are ways you may be losing efficiency, costing you more money:
- Dirty air filters; experts recommend changing filters every 1-3 months
- Improperly sealed and insulated heating and cooling ducts
- Dirty HVAC coils
- Lack of maintenance
It is a good idea to have your HVAC tuned up yearly by a professional. Regular professional maintenance can reduce the cost of running your HVAC system by 5-40 percent.
