Ways to Save Energy
Do you know that heating and cooling account for more than 50% of the average home’s energy consumption? So if your electricity bill at the end of the month makes your pockets hurt, the problem may be with your HVAC system. But we are at a conundrum here. Climate control appliances are very important to our homes. It is impossible to do without them. The only way to have a compromise is to adopt measures that will ultimately save you money and energy. Here are some tips that can help you significantly reduce your spending on energy.
Use Programmable Thermostats or Smart Thermostats
With the help of programmable thermostats, you can considerably reduce the amount of energy that your HVAC consumes. Programmable Thermostats will ensure that your HVAC doesn’t work when you do not need it to. There is no point in having an HVAC system function if there is no one at home to use it. Programmable thermostats are designed so that they can be configured to make sure that the only time that your HVAC is active is when you will be using it. Smart Thermostats, on the other hand, detect the presence and absence of people in the building and adjusts the heating and cooling appropriately.
Maintain The Coils Of Your AC Unit
The Coils of our AC Unit are a very important part of the system. They are responsible for trapping heat and sending cold air to the room. Along with trapping heat, the coils also trap particles like dander, dust, and dirt. As a result, the coils are unable to catch as much heat, as usual, forcing the Air conditioner to work harder. This also means that it will need more energy to compensate. The result is hiked up energy bills. The best way to prevent your coils from being covered in debris is to make sure that you keep debris away from the outdoor unit.
Replace Your Air Filters
Air Filters can get blocked due to dirt and debris. They have to be replaced frequently to reduce the pressure that a damaged filter will put on the unit, which will result in wasted energy. Replacing or cleaning an Air Filter is not something that you cannot do yourself. All you have to do is remove the filter, check for debris, clean with an old toothbrush, and wash in soapy water. If, when it dries, the air filter is still dirty, you may have to replace it.
Have Us Come Regularly Check Up Your HVAC
A poorly maintained HVAC system can significantly increase your energy consumption by a lot. This is because, without regular cleaning and inspection by a professional, your HVAC unit will have to work overtime to produce heat and cold air.
