Find out how to buy a new house and not break the bank when trying to keep it cool.
Are you in a new home and hoping for greater energy efficiency than in your last? Whether your home is decades old or brand spanking new, there are ways to save on heating and cooling. Here are three great budget-friendly tips for using your AC in your new home:
One of the best and least expensive ways to save money on your cooling is with a smart thermostat. Not only will it allow you to customize the temperature and comfort level in your home, but it also allows you to cool only when you need it and scale back on the cooling when you don't. And you can monitor your energy use every month and adjust accordingly to meet your own energy efficiency goals.
This might be one of the easiest things to do regularly to increase your HVAC efficiency. Your air filter works to trap dust, dirt, and other airborne particles before they get pulled into your HVAC system. When the filter gets dirty and clogged, it makes your system work much harder to pull the air through. Changing your filter often can prevent excessive energy use by making it easier for your HVAC to draw in air.
Twice-yearly maintenance will improve your energy efficiency by keeping your system clean and tuned up. When it runs at optimum performance, it's going to run more smoothly and use less energy to keep your house cool, saving energy and saving you money on your utility bills.
