When you’re talking about energy efficiency, HVAC costs usually enter the discussion at some point, and for good reason. Heating and cooling account for a significant portion of our energy bills, and we're always trying to come up with ways to cut down on what we consume. This isn't always easy, especially during the hottest months of the year. Luckily, there are ways to keep the bills under control without giving up the cooling we need. Keep reading for three pointers to minimize your electricity bill this summer.
Your HVAC works overtime when the weather reaches extreme levels, so it's important to give it a break when the opportunity presents itself. This can include opening the windows on cooler nights instead of running the AC or utilizing ceiling fans to help rooms feel cooler. Fans allow you to feel just as comfortable with a more conservative setting on the thermostat. Even a few degrees can make a big difference once the bills arrive.
Preventative maintenance from a reputable provider can keep your bills down by ensuring the HVAC system is always working at peak efficiency. Aside from that, you can perform some maintenance of your own to make sure the unit doesn't need to work harder than necessary. Keep an eye on air filters and change them regularly to keep airflow from blocking up, which is a cause of wear and tear as well as reduced efficiency.
Even the smallest issues and inefficiencies can lead to higher electric bills. An energy audit highlights the little problems so you can fix them, thus cutting down on your consumption and allowing you to save money right away and also over time.
