The New Year’s festivities give you an opportunity to make decisions that can have a positive impact on your future. One common resolution homeowner’s make for the upcoming year is to save money, but it’s easy to let this goal slip through the cracks if you don’t have a plan in mind. Since HVAC systems typically consume more energy than any of the other systems in your home, we’ve put together a few recommendations so that you can start saving on heating and cooling costs today!
Schedule reminders on your calendar to change the air filter
A dirty filter blocks airflow into the system, which means longer run times and a potential hike in your energy bills. Resolve to keep your heating and cooling bills low by setting reminders on your calendar to change the filter on a convenient day each month.
Join a maintenance program
Another thing that helps to improve the condition of your air conditioning and heating systems is an annual maintenance visit. Maintenance helps the system to run smoothly, and you can learn about problems within your air conditioning and heating system early on so that they don’t develop into a major problem.
Seal your ducts
Leaky ducts add on a lot to your monthly energy bills, since air has trouble reaching your home efficiently. And it turns out that most homes have leaky ducts. Duct sealing can save you hundreds of dollars a year, so call a professional today to learn if this is a service you should schedule this coming year.
Replace Your Thermostat
If you’re relying on a thermostat that doesn’t have any preset programming options, it’s time for an upgrade today! A programmable thermostat allows you to vary the temperature throughout the day for maximum efficiency. And with a smart thermostat, you can even make changes from your smart phone or tablet.
