Did you know that studies have found that heating and cooling
could account for 30- 40% of your home’s energy bill?
These bills pile up and can generally become the largest energy expense in most homes. Let’s take a look at a few tips that can help reduce your energy bills, add a little money to your pocketbook, and make the environment a little more sustainable.
Not all heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are created equal. The more years a heating a cooling system has weathered, the more likely is to break down or run up your energy costs. It’s a good rule of thumb to consider replacing furnaces that are older than 10 years, and cooling systems that are older than 15. Not only will replacing your system cut down on repair costs and energy usage, but it will also help protect the environment through increased sustainability. Today, manufacturers have utilized new technology to develop high-efficiency systems that demonstrate improved performance over older models. The Environmental Protection agency has created Energy Star, a designation for HVAC systems that meet or exceed federal guidelines for high efficiency performance.
Although new, energy efficient HVAC systems can be more expensive to purchase up front, the cost difference will be paid back over time through lower energy bills. Additionally, proper care and maintenance can help you prevent future problems with your heating and cooling system.
