Do you want to focus on energy efficiency while also keeping your house warm this fall? It might be easier than you think! Upgrading your HVAC system, or even servicing your current system, can help you save energy and lower your utility bills. Here are some tips to keep your home energy efficient this fall.
Maintain Your HVAC System
One way to keep your home energy efficient is to have your HVAC system regularly serviced. Replacing the air filter on your furnace is one way to save energy. A blocked air filter causes the system to have to work harder, using more energy and raising your bill.
Adjust Your Home’s Temperature
Turning your thermostat up or down 10 to 15 degrees in the fall and winter when you are away from home can help to cut down on energy use and save you money on utility bills. The lower your thermostat setting, the less work your HVAC will need to do, resulting in less energy use.
Installing a Smart Thermostat
Smart thermostats are programmable and make it easy for you to change the temperature within your home, even when you are away from the house. Installing a smart thermostat in your home will allow you to stay comfortable in the fall while also saving energy.
Increasing the energy efficiency within your home is great to keep utility costs down and help care for the planet. If you’re interested in increasing the energy efficiency of your HVAC system, connect with H.H. Hovey to schedule your service today.
