According to the U.S. Department of Energy, your heating and cooling costs make up at least half of your monthly utility bills. Luckily, there are various things you can do to cut down on this expense. You can take advantage of the cooler months to enjoy savings on your energy costs.
Here are helpful tips from a trusted solar panel company for saving energy and utility costs as a new season approaches.
Open Your Windows
There may be days where temperatures are milder, and you can turn off your air conditioner. It would also be great to open your windows during these days. Aside from saving energy costs, it will also allow fresh air into your living spaces and help improve your indoor air quality.
Replace HVAC Filters
One of the easiest ways to keep your HVAC system in good shape is to replace filters regularly. Dirty air filters can contribute to poor airflow and also let pollutants circulate your indoor air. Restricted airflow can cause your equipment to work harder than it should, resulting in higher energy costs.
Moreover, it’s also a great idea to have your HVAC unit inspected and maintained. Doing so will help you ensure that it stays efficient all year round. For your home’s heating and cooling needs, Go Green Air is always ready to assist. Our team also installs high-quality solar panels.
Set Your Ceiling Fan to Reverse
Ceiling fans can both help in cooling and heating your home. All you need to do is reverse the direction of the blades clockwise. The fan will then push warm air back down to your space. It will also help circulate warm air from your heating equipment.
