How energy efficient is your home? Your energy bills are unavoidable but spending a fortune on them is. Increasing efficiency while cutting costs is possible. Take a look at the three best ways to keep your energy bill low this summer.
1: Change Your HVAC Filter
One of the easiest and least expensive ways to lower your energy bills is by changing your HVAC air filter. The filter traps dirt, dust, pollen, dander, and other airborne pollutants. When the filter gets full, it’s harder for the HVAC system to pull in air for heating and cooling, which means it has to work harder, leading to excessive energy use. Change the filter, and you’ll use less energy and save money this summer.
2: Upgrade Your Thermostat
Are you still managing an old thermostat, constantly trying to adjust the temperature to stay comfortable? It’s time for an upgrade. Not only will a programmable smart thermostat help keep your home more comfortable, but it will also cut your cooling costs. With programming capabilities so you’re only cooling your home when you need it, you’ll see a decline in the total amount due every month.
3: Service the System
Having a licensed HVAC technician service your air conditioning equipment this spring can cut your cooling costs this summer. A well-running system will be more effective and also more efficient.
