3 Energy Efficiency Tips
There are so many things that you can do as a homeowner to improve the energy efficiency of your HVAC system. These range from small changes you can make on your own to bigger, more long-term upgrades and regular maintenance. Below are three of our favorite tips for keeping your energy efficiency in check.
1. Small Improvements Make a Difference
Little things add up. Good examples of this include turning off and unplugging those electronics you don’t use all the time and changing your air filters on schedule.
2. Implement a Smart/Programmable Thermostat
A bigger step toward energy efficiency comes with replacing your old thermostat with one that is programmable and/or works with your preferred smart technology. This level of control allows you to adjust your thermostat settings to suit your schedule and even while you’re on the go, meaning you won’t be cooling an entire house while everyone is at work or school, which can also save you money.
3. Schedule Regular Maintenance Check-ups
If your HVAC system is not outdated (10 years or older), the best way to stay ahead of inefficiency is through regularly scheduled maintenance check-ups.
How to Further Improve the Energy Efficiency of your Home
A home that has begun to fall behind in energy efficiency will start to exhibit symptoms – most people will start to notice things like inconsistent heating or cooling throughout their house, issues with humidity levels or more dust than usual and most tellingly, a noticeable increase in their monthly energy bills.
