Most homeowners would like to see their home’s energy consumption decrease in order to boost energy savings. The experts at Maitz Home Services are happy to help by offering our top 5 ways to drive energy savings higher, no matter the season.
These 5 tips can help you save money throughout the year:1. Use your programmable thermostat
to set an energy-saving schedule, and be sure to implement at least one eight-hour period a day when you dramatically adjust temperatures for maximum savings. Most homeowners schedule these periods when the home is unoccupied or when they’re sleeping. 2. Upgrade the insulation throughout your home.
This action will create a better barrier to prevent heat gain during the summer, and prevent heat loss in the winter3. Seal the air leaks around your home’s exterior.
When you close leaks, you’ll keep more conditioned air inside and reduce energy consumption. 4. Change your system’s filter regularly to ensure proper airflow through the A/C.
When airflow is constricted, your system will consume more energy. 5. Replace old, inefficient HVAC equipment
, like your A/C or water heater, with high-efficiency systems that will dramatically boost your monthly energy savings, and maximize your investment over the life of the equipment.
By implementing some simple strategies to boost energy savings, homeowners can reduce their energy consumption while making their homes more comfortable. For expert advice, contact the HVAC professionals at Maitz Home Services today.
