Timeless Tricks for Energy Savings
Minimize Your Expenses & Maximize Your Comfort
The HVAC industry is constantly changing. That being said, tradition still plays a part when it comes to your indoor comfort. During the summertime, homeowners increase their energy usage; and as a result, their utility bills often climb drastically.
At Home Comfort Heating & Cooling, we’re here to pass along some tricks of the trade. Using these energy-saving tips, you can stay cool this summer, and simultaneously benefit your budget.
Outsmart Your Energy Bills
While you count on your AC for cooling comfort, this doesn’t mean that your hands are tied. Explore below some ways that you can control your energy usage—without being forced to lose your cool.
When your air conditioner is running at full force, you should replace the air filters on a monthly basis. Otherwise, debris will build up in your system and hinder your unit’s overall efficiency. When your AC needs to work harder to crank out cool air, this overexertion is reflected in your utility bills.
Fine-tuning your AC through our maintenance services, our technicians will be happy to teach you the proper technique for changing the air filter.
Doors and Windows
Each summer, homeowners look forward to spending more time outside. However, this doesn’t mean that your home should feel as warm as the outdoors. When your home has leaks, this energy loss directly impacts your expenses.
Rather than exposing your home to the elements, weather-strip, seal and caulk all leaky doors and windows. In addition, shut windows and blinds during the day to limit the sun’s heat.
If you are committed to saving as much energy as possible, avoid using the oven and other heat-generating appliances. Additionally, wash your clothes in cold water, and consider investing in a ceiling fan for rooms that are particularly hot.
Making changes in the home will undoubtedly benefit your energy savings. However, there are times when your air conditioner is the real restraint that’s holding you back.
