How many times have you looked at your energy bill and were shocked at how high it was? Over half of the energy your home consumes comes from your heating and cooling system. In the winter time, homeowners blast their heaters in order to stay warm. During the summer time, in order to escape the smoldering heat, homeowners elect to have their air conditioners running nonstop. Let’s take a look at a couple of E&Q Heating and Cooling tips you can use.
Close the openings and cracks around your home. Most homeowners don’t realize how many cracks they have around their homes until they actually look for them. It’s not uncommon for some homes to be riddled with cracks and opening around windows and doors. Carefully look around the windows of your home. If you notice any openings you can simply use caulk to seal them shut. Doors that lead to the exterior also tend to have openings underneath them. You can fix this problem by using an under door draft stopper. Taking these steps will ensure that your heat and cold air stay inside of your home.
You should also pay attention to how you’re operating your heating and cooling system. In order to save money you should keep the thermostat at a temperature that you can stand. For instance, during those cold winter months, set the thermostat to the lowest temperature you can tolerate. In the summer, increase the temperature to the highest point you can stand. Doing this will prevent your system from working so hard, and will prevent an unnecessary call to a Professional HVAC Repair service.
Consider investing in a programmable thermostat for your home. Right now, you probably have to set your thermostat at a certain temperature during certain times of the day. Unfortunately, manually setting the temperature could be wasting you money. A programmable thermostat will allow your system to automatically adjust itself during certain times of the day.
These are just a few tips you should use for your heating and cooling system. Again, closing cracks around your home will help save you a lot of money. You can also save money by adjusting your thermostat, or investing in a programmable thermostat. Both of these choices will prevent an unnecessary call to a Professional HVAC Repair service.
