Since HVAC systems have become part of our daily lives, and the biggest consumers of energy in our homes.
We need to be aware of tips that help in saving energy in our homes.
Once we save up on the energy costs, we can direct the money onto other important areas within the home. I take seriously the energy saving help tips that some of the heating corps provide to their customers. When my boiler installation was done, the HVAC techs were kind enough to provide these tips and also explain them to me in detail. I noted that when I followed these recommendations my utility bill drastically dropped. But was it contained in these recommendations? One tip is to make sure we perform furnace/heater tune-up to our electric heating systems whether they are old or new heating units. Regular servicing helps the central heating to function at optimum level and efficiently thus it does not use a lot of energy. Most heating and air conditioning systems must be serviced, however some more than others. Take the geo heat pump, for instance, It does not require as much servicing as a ductless HVAC. Many homeowners often forget to service the wireless thermostat which can cause a dent in your utility bills. Believe it or not, servicing your controller can allow it to communicate better with the main unit. Another tip would be to lower the temperature on the oil heater when I am not on the premises. This ensures that heat is not lost as there is no one inhabiting the premises. I also ensure to switch off the space heater when not in use. These are very important tips that really do help in budgeting my bills.
