Boost the Energy Efficiency of Your HVAC System

Published by Blue Corona

Your heating and cooling system is one of the most crucial components of your home and can affect your utility bills in a major way. The decisions you make involving your HVAC system can have dramatic effects on your monthly energy bills, and so even a moderate change can end up costing or saving you thousands of dollars in the long run. If you want to reduce your energy costs and still enjoy the benefits of an HVAC unit, then consider implementing the following changes.

Steps for Boosting Energy Savings

  • Install a Smart Thermostat – Wi-Fi-enabled programmable thermostats are all the rage, and for good reason. You can change the temperature from your phone while you are away, so if no one is home for large portions of the day, you can turn the system off and save money.
  • Get Regular Maintenance – Regularly getting your HVAC system serviced and inspected is a great way to reduce energy consumption. Having a professional take a quick look through your equipment can ensure that your HVAC energy is optimal throughout the year.
  • Seal Cooling and Heating Ducts – If your home uses ductwork to provide heating or cooling air to each room, then you want to make sure that those ducts are airtight. Heat pumps and central air systems can waste tons of energy if they leak, so having a proper inspection of your ducts can help immensely.
  • Change Air Filter – The simplest but often forgotten way to save energy is to check your air filters about once a month. If there is dirt built up on the filter, then you know it is time to change it out, as a dirty filter reduces efficiency by an incredible amount.
