Are you going green? Whether you’re trying to save money, the planet, or both, we’ve got some ways to go green without giving up your HVAC. Take a look at these three tips from our energy services professionals to help you save money and energy on your air conditioning this summer.
#1: Change Your Air Filter
Something as simple as changing your air filter can have a big impact on your energy use. When your HVAC air filter is dirty and clogged, your AC has to work overtime to pull air in for cooling. Changing the air filter will help your house feel cooler, your air conditioner work more effectively, and help you use less energy.
#2: Upgrade Your Thermostat
A smart thermostat is a great way to go green. This easy upgrade provides multiple ways to be more energy-efficient while keeping your home more consistently comfortable and cool. With programming options to optimize your energy use and keep your home cool when you need it and less cool when you don’t, you’ll save money while reducing your carbon footprint.
#3: Install a Dehumidifier
Summers in the south are always hot and sticky, but you can make your home feel more comfortable while saving energy with a dehumidifier. The lower the humidity, the cooler the air feels. A dehumidifier can make your home feel cooler and more comfortable while reducing the amount of AC you need. Less AC means energy savings for you.
It’s time to go green, and with these quick tricks, you can do it easily and affordably. Find out more by contacting the energy services team at G+S Heating Air Energy Services.
