Paying the high cost of utility bills can be tiresome. That’s why homeowners are constantly looking for smart ways to increase the energy efficiency of their residential heating and air conditioning system. The more energy efficient a system is, then less energy is wasted and more money is saved. As a good portion of monthly energy expenses goes to heating and cooling, we’ll now take a look at the different ways homeowners can make their HVAC systems more efficient.
Investing in Programmable Thermostats
Programmable thermostats give homeowners the luxury of doing away with constant manual changes to thermostat settings. By programming the thermostat settings according to your specific schedule, you can optimize its use and boost energy efficiency. In fact, the DOE estimates that with proper use of programmable thermostats, homeowners can save anywhere from five to fifteen percent in annual cooling and heating expenses!
Regular Air Filter Change
As filters ensure your HVAC system provides you with only the purest of air by filtering out pollutants; therefore, it’s natural for them to get dirty as time wears on. Dirty filters can block airflow, thereby making your system less efficient. The more it strains, the more energy it consumes. In addition, you also run the risk of respiratory ailments and allergies if you let air filter care fall by the wayside.
Routine Coil and Duct Maintenance
Clean coils in outdoor units can keep air conditioning systems running efficiently. Just the same, you also have to periodically check your ducts to make sure they are free of dust and debris for efficiency and money-saving purposes in the long run.
