No one likes paying a hefty energy bill. However, you do require heating in the winter and cooling in the summer for you and your family to be comfortable.
According to the Energy Star Corporation, more than 45% of your energy bill is due to your heating and cooling system.
There are ways however to save money on your energy bill when it comes to your HVAC system.
3 Energy Efficiency Tips For Your HVAC
Here are 3 energy efficiency tips you can implement:
1. Seal Leaks In The Home
You might not know it but every home has leaks where cool and warm air escapes and enters the house. It’s important to check your home for these leaks and seal up any that you may find. Inspect doors and windows and use caulk or weather stripping. Once the leaks are better sealed, your HVAC won’t have to work as hard to maintain an average internal temperature within your home and you’ll save money.
2. Install A Digital, Programmable Thermostat
Instead of utilizing a regular digital thermostat, install a programmable thermostat. With this type of thermostat, you can program it to your desired temperature to keep you and your family comfortable while home and program it to auto-adjust when at work, school, running errands or on vacation. Your HVAC won’t have to unnecessarily run as much when no one is there, thus saving on energy and money.
3. Use A Ceiling Or Portable Fan
Ceiling fans move air in a funnel which results in a ‘wind chill’ effect. Even though using a ceiling or portable fan won’t actually lower the room temperature, it can allow you to feel cooler, since it helps evaporate sweat. This allows you to possibly turn up the air conditioning by a degree or two.
