Efficiency Upgrades for Earth Day
As we look forward to Earth Day on April 20th, we are looking for ways to decrease our energy consumption. There are many things we can do, especially involving our HVAC system, that can help us with this goal. Replacing an outdated system is a definite way to make sure that your home is running more efficiently, and there are other changes you can make too!
Adding insulation is a great way to make sure that your home is operating at peak performance. Our Home Performance Specialist, Tony, knows all about it! Insulating your home means that the comfortable climate you have created comes with less work on your heating and air conditioning systems.
Upgrading your thermostat can also reduce your carbon footprint. Setting the thermostat closer to the outdoor temperature when you are not home ensures that your system is not working hard to keep no one comfortable. A digital, programmable thermostat is also more accurate, so you can be sure what the actual temperature inside your home is.
The best way to ensure that your system is running as efficiently as possible is regular maintenance. Checking the refrigeration levels, changing the filter regularly, or cleaning the outdoor unit of yard debris, can make a huge difference in your energy consumption.
Of course, if you are interested in replacing your system before the outdoor temperatures reach extremes, we would love to help you with that too! Call today to set up a free in-home analysis and our expert Comfort Advisors can give you all the information about the most energy-efficient system for your home. Luckily these systems are often applicable for a variety of rebates.
