Is your heating system up to par when it comes to energy efficiency? Some ways to get it there and keep it there are simple and affordable. Take a look at three that the pros recommend.
1: Keep Your Air Filter Clean and Clear
The air filter’s primary job is to keep dust, dirt, and other airborne particles out of your HVAC system. If the filter is dirty and clogged, it has to work harder to keep your house warm. By keeping a clean air filter in place, you can help keep your system running efficiently and using less energy.
2: Upgrade Your Thermostat
Sometimes the best way to increase the efficiency of your heating system is by upgrading its boss. The HVAC system relies on the thermostat to direct it on what to do. By upgrading your thermostat, you have more control over when it runs, how long, and how often. With comprehensive programming capabilities and the ability to monitor energy use, you can save money every month, keeping your house warm.
3: Consider a New HVAC Unit
Is your heating system or furnace more than ten years old? If yes, it might be time to consider an upgrade. Newer equipment is significantly more energy-efficient, using less energy than older models. You can make up for the cost of the unit, and then some when you use less energy every month.
Everyone wants to spend less money without sacrificing comfort. Can you do that and still keep your heating system running? You bet. The experts at H.H. Hovey Heating and Cooling, Inc. can help. Contact them today for information on improving your energy efficiency.
