Why an Energy Audit Is Important

An energy audit is an assessment of your home that can tell you what its energy needs are and how efficient it is. It’s important because it lets you know where and how you can reduce your energy consumption. This helps you be a better global citizen, but it also saves you money on your utility bills, now and over time.

What Should an Energy Audit Include?

A comprehensive home energy audit checklist should include, at the minimum, these six things:

  • Attic, crawl, and basement spaces
  • Exterior walls, doors, and windows
  • Concrete slabs and foundation walls
  • Attached garages
  • Water heating systems
  • Heating and cooling systems

Why Your HVAC System Is So Important

Your heating and cooling systems are two of the biggest energy users in your home. Making sure they’re running as efficiently as possible should be part of your energy plan. An HVAC inspection and service done by a reliable HVAC technician will save you money and make sure your home stays comfortable.

Save Money This Year

One of the biggest benefits of regular HVAC maintenance is saving money. You can prevent breakdowns, cut down on energy use, lower your utility bills, and give your HVAC system a longer life.

Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

A system that’s running right is going to do its best to keep the air in your home cleaner. Your HVAC technician can check the filter, the ducts, and the air cleaners as well as the humidity levels and the air flow. All of these things contribute to the quality of the air you and your family breathe.

Increased Comfort

Regular maintenance means consistent temperatures. Consistent temperatures mean a more comfortable home. If there are issues with your heating or cooling systems, even small ones, it could mean the difference between reliable temperatures and an uncomfortable home, with a frustrated you.

Want peace of mind in 2019? Then it’s time to prioritize HVAC maintenance. Your home will be more comfortable, your utility bills lower, and your indoor air cleaner. And all you need is to contact Morelli Heating and Air Conditioning for a maintenance agreement that makes keeping it a priority easier than ever.


3 Ways Smart Thermostats Will Save You Money


Are your heating and air conditioning costing you an arm and a leg?

Heating and air conditioning are essential, especially in the south where the winters can get unexpectedly chilly, and the summers are hot, hot, hot. That doesn’t mean it has to cost you a small fortune to keep your house comfortable. Take a look at three ways a smart thermostat can help you save money without giving up your heat and AC.

Simple Programming Equals Simple Savings

Saving money with programming is simple. The user-friendly interface on today’s smart thermostats makes them easy to program, so you only use heating and cooling when you need it most. Instead of keeping your home at the optimum temperature 24/7, use the programming functions to save money by using less when you don’t need it. You can set it for your daily schedule, for vacations and when you’re out of town, and use less energy when you are at home.

Monitor Your Energy Use

Many of the latest smart thermostats allow you to monitor your energy use in real-time. This gives you insight into how much you might be using during the month. The benefit of energy monitoring is that you can adjust the temperature and programming to meet your efficiency goals and lower your utility bills.

Adjust as Needed

Staying late at work? Coming home a day early from vacation? A sudden change in the forecast? These unforeseeable events don’t have to mean you’re stuck with the same temperature in your home. A smart thermostat lets you make changes from anywhere, anytime, via a WiFi connection. Plans change, and so can your thermostat.

Don’t spend all of your money keeping your house comfy. Talk to the team at Morelli Heating and Air Conditioning to get the right smart thermostat to save you money.


3 Ways to Prepare for Your Commercial HVAC Installation


Commercial services are the team to rely on when it comes to HVAC installation. Is there some way you need to prep before they arrive? Let’s take a look at three ways to prepare for your commercial HVAC installation:

#1: Pick the Right Unit

Don’t choose your new HVAC system hastily. The wrong unit can cause you long-term headaches. You need to make sure it’s the right size, the right capacity, and a brand you can trust. Working with a reliable HVAC company to assess your building and your needs will help ensure you choose the right system for your budget and your business.

#2: Have the Ducts and Ventilation Inspected

Before you spend the time and money on a new heating and cooling system for your business, take the time to have the ducts and ventilation inspected. You don’t want to invest in an upgrade only to find that you’re losing heating and cooling through cracks in the ducts. You also want to make sure the ducts and vents are clean. This will help make sure you can take advantage of all of the benefits of a new system.

#3: Consider Add-Ons

If you’re spending the time and money to upgrade your heating and cooling system, consider also spending some money on add-ons that can make your new system even more effective and efficient. Things like humidifiers and dehumidifiers, smart thermostats, and air purification systems can keep your office, and your staff more comfortable than ever.

Don’t just wait for the arrival of your new HVAC systems, make sure you prep for installation. Contact the commercial services experts at Morelli to find out what system is right for you and what you need to do to get ready for installation.
