Is there anything I can do to my heating and air conditioning system to reduce my energy use and lower my utility bills?
Are we powerless when it comes to our monthly bills from our heating and air conditioning? The answer is a resounding no! There are lots of options to help increase your energy efficiency and lower your monthly bills, and HVAC add-ons might be just what you’re looking for.
Add Smart Thermostats
One of the best and easiest ways to lower your utility bills and make your heating system more efficient is with better temperature control. The more efficient your temperature control, the more efficient your heating system. The best way to do this is with a smart thermostat.
Smart thermostats allow you to customize your heating to fit your lifestyle, your preferences, and your heating needs. By heating your home based on when you’re there, with the ability to adjust as needed either by pre-scheduling or remotely via Wi-Fi, you control your energy use and your utility bills.
Add a Humidifier
It seems counterintuitive to add a humidifier to save money on your energy bills, but it can help. Humid air holds heat more effectively than dry air. This helps your house feel and stay warmer longer without excessive use of your heating system. You might even be able to lower the temperature setting a degree or two with the same level of comfort.
You don’t want to have excessive humidity because that can cause other problems, but controlling the relative humidity is a great way to make your system more efficient and less expensive.
