Professional maintenance is easily one of the best things you can do for your HVAC system. Arguably, its biggest attribute is how it enhances your system’s energy efficiency. Part of what a professional HVAC technician will do is make sure everything inside your heating or cooling unit is operating smoothly. By reducing stress among the interconnecting parts of your system, your system, by default, will use less energy.
Thus, by investing in HVAC maintenance, you invest in HVAC energy efficiency.
Some things should be reserved for a professional, while others can be handled by yourself! There are a lot of little things you can do to increase your home’s efficiency. You can rotate clean air filters into your HVAC system, take the time to clean your home, seal air leaks in doorways, and more. Each task alone may not seem like a significant step toward an efficient home, but put together, they make a significant impact.
A new HVAC system is easily one of the best things you can do to be efficient. HVAC technology has improved over the years, leading to systems with higher efficiency ratings and less fuel usage. You will often find that any new HVAC system is more efficient than the one you have now purely by design. If your current HVAC system is old, you can cut the cost of a new HVAC system by the amount of money you will save every month on energy bills; so, consider a new system today!
There are energy efficient HVAC systems, and then there are solar-ready HVAC systems – an HVAC system that is powered directly from the light of the sun. These HVAC units are incredibly efficient as they don’t require your classic fuel source. Solar ready HVAC systems provide a much lower energy bill, a smaller carbon footprint, and tax incentives for their owners.
The best part of a solar powered HVAC system is that the panels power more than just your HVAC unit. After your system has taken the energy it needs, the leftover energy is used by different appliances and electronics in your home. That alone will boost your entire home’s overall efficiency, making it a worthy investment for 2017!
A programmable thermostat is the best way to optimize the way you use your heating or cooling unit. Imagine a thermostat that works with your schedule and can be controlled from across town. With the modern thermostats, we offer today, you can do just that. You can now ensure that your thermostat will only operate your HVAC system when you need it. As a result, you can turn the power down when you’re at work, out of the house, or asleep to save money on your utility bill.
A high-tech thermostat will also make sure that the temperatures across your home are even and more precise to the temperature reading. Old thermostats can fluctuate around the desired temperature and have varying temperatures across the home. Advanced thermostats eliminate those problems and provide several energy-efficient benefits to homeowners.
