Should you enlist the help of energy services to cut down on your monthly utility bills? Absolutely, but there are other tactics you can employ that will help you maintain more consistent temperatures at home. This not only keeps your house's occupants more comfortable, but it also means you'll spend less on cooling and heating.
You might not think about your windows much, but they can be a heavy energy drain. Homes tend to lose a lot of air through windows - including the air you pay to cool! - and that contributes to unstable temperatures. Wooden shutters and blinds don't absorb as much heat, and cellular shades trap air rather than allowing it to pass through.
Smart thermostats are WIFI enabled devices that allow you to make adjustments to their settings from anywhere you have an internet connection (so almost anywhere, pretty much). Even the slightest changes to your temperature can have a huge impact on your energy usage, and you would never need to waste money keeping empty rooms comfortable again! You can also set schedules that ensure the thermostat maintains the right temperature at all times.
Duct testing can highlight issues that could be having an effect on the efficiency of your system. If the ductwork is in disrepair, deteriorated, or poorly connected, you could be losing air and wasting energy. You could even be harming your HVAC with blocked ducts, since the system must work much harder for the same results. If you're unsure of whether your ducts are still up to the task, don't wait! Call in the experts!
