Our Five Tips for Managing Energy Costs
Here are our five tips for managing energy costs:
1. Schedule a home energy audit
When you have a home energy audit performed by a BPI accredited contractor like Arctic Air Conditioning, we can inspect your home and suggest recommendations on the existing components that can help you significantly decrease the amount of wasted energy in your home—and if you make these changes, you can qualify for amazing rebates of up to $5,000!* These changes can include everything from updating your home’s ductwork to installing a new furnace and more.
2. Install a programmable thermostat
A programmable thermostat is pretty simple—it allows you to create different temperature settings for different times of the day or occasions. For example, during the winter, you can set your programmable thermostat to automatically lower the temperature during the day while everyone is out of the house at work or school. That way you won’t be wasting energy heating your home while no one’s there—and you can schedule it to raise the temperature just before you return!
3. Get annual HVAC maintenance
If you want your heating and cooling equipment to run efficiently and limit energy waste, you need to have annual HVAC maintenance performed. Ideally, heating maintenance should be done at the end of the summer or beginning of fall while cooling maintenance should be done at the end of winter or beginning of spring. This allows our highly-qualified technicians the chance to check out your system and make sure everything is in top condition.
4. Install a whole-house humidifier
During the winter, you can actually keep your home more comfortable with less energy by installing a whole-house humidifier. Since you will feel more comfortable when the air has a higher relative humidity level, you can keep the temperature set a little lower on your thermostat!
5. Install radiant floor heating
Did you know that radiant floor heating actually uses significantly less energy to operate compared to traditional forced air heating systems? This means you can save money on your monthly heating bills while staying more comfortable!
