Your heating and cooling usage make up a large, if not the largest, part of your monthly energy costs. Depending on the time of year, the effect your HVAC system has on your energy costs can spike. So it is important that your heating and cooling system is running properly and efficiently. Here are just three of the ways Quality HVAC and Refrigeration can help save on your energy costs.
Regular maintenance is important and can save you money on energy costs. Any number of issues can cause your heating and cooling system to run improperly. For example, your HVAC system could be leaking Freon. If your AC is low on Freon it will not cool effectively and will run longer to compensate, this will lead to higher energy costs. With a maintenance agreement, we can find heating and cooling problems or even prevent them.
Air is not the only thing lost due to a poorly insulated attic, energy is also lost and energy costs money. A well-insulated home is vital to keeping your home comfortable. Insufficient insulation in your home will lose heat or cold air faster than a well-insulated home causing your HVAC system to run more than it has to. Johns Manville blown-in insulation can increase the R-value of your home and help lower your energy costs for years to come.
A good thermostat is essential to an efficiently running HVAC system. Old analog thermostats are limited, but a smart programmable thermostat has a wide variety of useful options that can help save on energy costs. With a smart thermostat, you can set specific days, times and duration that your heating and cooling system will run, giving you complete control. Some smart thermostats have WiFi connectivity allowing you control of your system from anywhere there is internet access. Control of your heating and cooling system means control over your energy costs.
