5 Tips on How to Lower Your HVAC Bills

HVAC repair

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) services account for roughly half of the energy used in an average American home. Having an efficient HVAC system can significantly decrease how much you spend on your utility bills every month. Especially during tough economic times, homeowners across the country are always looking for new ways to save on bills. One of the easiest ways to do so is to pay close attention to your HVAC system and, if need be, make a few modifications. A few simple rules can make a world's difference in your spending on utilities.

If you want to save on your bills, here are a few efficient home heating tips to keep in mind:

  • When you're not at home, turn down your thermostat. This especially applies for when you're away for an extended period of time, such as when you're on vacation. Whatever you do, though, do NOT turn off your HVAC system entirely. It needs to be on but it can be set to lower temperatures.

  • During the winter, your thermostat should be set to about 68-70 degrees during the day and to 65-68 degrees at night. This will keep you more than comfortable and will put less of a strain on your HVAC system.

  • Change the air filters of your HVAC system at least once every three months. HVAC inspections should be conducted at least once a month.

  • Change the air filters of your HVAC system at least once every three months. HVAC inspections should be conducted at least once a month.

  • Reliable heating services depend on proper sealing and insulation in order to be the most efficient. Proper insulation can increase a system's efficiency by 20%.

Taking these few simple steps can extend the life of your heating and cooling systems and can delay the need for HVAC repair work. For more information about HVAC repair work, heating and cooling tips, or other topics, feel free to leave a comment or question at the bottom.
