Save money on your home’s typical operating costs by increasing your HVAC efficiency. Getting the most out of your appliances and electronics can lower your energy bills and contribute to saving the environment. Your HVAC system can be a major source of lost power in your home, so learning ways to increase its efficiency is always a good idea.
Keep the Condenser Unit Clean
The outdoor condenser unit that runs your HVAC can collect dirt and debris. Make sure that plants or vegetation don’t overgrow around the unit. This can cause blockages and force your system to work harder.
Keep the Thermostat Cool
If you have an automatic thermostat, keep the temperature around it as close as possible to your preferred temperature. If you keep heaters or hot light bulbs near the thermostat, its sensor will detect that the entire home is at this temperature. This will cause it to adjust accordingly, which might be cooler than you want or need.
Get Regular Maintenance
Your HVAC system needs regular preventive maintenance to stay in good working order. Lost air and leaking condenser units mean that you have to run the system longer to get your desired temperature, so it’s important to stay up-to-date on your maintenance. Keeping your ductwork sealed and replacing hoses as needed can greatly increase your HVAC efficiency.
