Going Green: How To Save Energy
Hey y’all, are you looking to Go Green? There are so many ways to Go Green, from recycling to eating healthy foods. One of the best ways to go Green and conserve energy is to make smart decisions about your home HVAC system. According to Energy Star about half of the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling. Here are some easy ways to help you save Energy and money!
Change Your Filters: This is a simple and easy way to save energy. We recommend changing your filter at least once every three months. However, in the high energy seasons (Summer and Winter) You should check them once a month, if they look dirty, change it. If you have a dirty filter, it will slow down the air flow, causing the system to work on overload.
HVAC Tune Up: Make sure you have a yearly tune-up for you heating and cooling system.
Having it checked yearly can help maintain and improve efficiency. Call
an HVAC professional to make a yearly appointment.
Programmable Thermostat: If you’re away from your house for longer periods of time during the day, a programmable thermostat would be a great investment. You can set it at different temperature for different times in the day. According to Energy Star, a programmable thermostat can save you about $180 every year in energy costs.
