Are you being smart with your heating and air conditioning?
Heating and air conditioning are essential, but are you being smart with how you use it? It’s easy to get into a routine and accept that’s how it is, but you can make some simple changes and get big results. Take a look at this handy two-step guide to smart heating and your home:
Step #1: Invest in a Smart Thermostat
A smart thermostat is a great way to make the most of your heating system this winter. Not only that, it can save you a bundle when it comes to your energy bills. Installing a smart thermostat allows you to more accurately control how and when you heat your home this winter.
The device’s user-friendly programming tools let you set your heat in any number of ways, so you only use it when you need it. You can program it to turn down at night when everyone is asleep and back up again before everyone gets up in the morning. You can put it in vacation mode when you’re away, or just adjust it to keep the pets and the plants happy during the day. The best thing about it is it will help you make smart choices about heating your home this winter.
Step #2: Have Your System Evaluated
How old is your heating system? If it’s coming up on the 10 to 15-year mark, it could be reaching the end of its useful life. Have a trustworthy HVAC technician take a look at the equipment and evaluate its performance. It might still have a few more years, but it might be smart to upgrade to a new HVAC system. You’ll save money on your energy bills in its increased efficiency, and your home will stay more consistently comfortable with a new system that is more effective than an older model.
