Want to save money on your heating and cooling expenses? There are many ways to reduce your heating and cooling bills. Not only will you save money, but you’ll conserve energy and help protect the environment. Use these tips to decrease your energy bill.
Keep Your Home Cooler
During the summer, keep your home cooler by using curtains and window shades to block out the sun’s rays. During the winter, just do the opposite: Open your curtains so that the sun can enter and warm up your home. Make sure to seal off any cracks that can let hot air or cold drafts in, especially near your doors and windows.
Watch Your Usage
A lot of energy can be saved by simply paying attention to your thermostat. If you’re not at home, you should turn it up to 78 or higher. Using a programmable thermostat, you can adjust the times you turn on the heating or air-conditioning according to a pre-set schedule. Read More
Repair Your Equipment
There are certain things that can reduce your air conditioning system’s efficiency and cause it to waste energy. Leaks in the air ducts can let unnecessary air out. Dusty and dirty air filters will cause your system to work overtime. Getting a yearly tune-up by a professional will help prevent these issues.
Replace Your Old Equipment
If your air conditioning system is old, it may be time to replace it. Installing a modern system that is designed to save energy will help you reduce your bills. Old systems are also not as efficient, which can cause them to use up more energy in order to heat up or cool down your home.
