Together, your home air conditioning and heating systems use up more energy than any other system in the home. In Florida, air conditioning is of particular concern, as inefficient equipment forces some of us to make adjustments to the thermostat that make us feel a lot less comfortable so that we can save some money month to month.
We’re here to help you save in 2016 without sacrificing your family’s comfort. Check out a few helpful efficiency tips!
Air conditioning and heating maintenance visits include an investigation of the most important components of the units. This way, you can schedule repairs before something goes wrong with the system, and this may cost less than repairing a completely broken down AC. Maintenance visits also include a tune-up and cleaning that can help the system to run at peak efficiency, reducing your overall bills.
Learn to Use Your Thermostat Efficiently
In 2015, we learned that the majority of homeowners with a programmable thermostat do not actually know how to use it. Understanding your thermostat allows you to use it more efficiently, since you can actually have the system turn on and off automatically even while you are far away. Consult your manual, check for an online guide for your particular model, or consult a local technician. Raise the temperature setting by 10 degrees (in warm weather) while you are away to save each month.
Replace Older Heating and AC Equipment
Finally, if your heating and AC equipment is over 10 years of age, it may be a good time to resolve to replace it. Newer heating and cooling systems have higher efficiency ratings than they did in the past. In fact, any time you replace a system that is decades old, you are likely to save on monthly costs (as long as it’s the right size for your house).
