Your heating and cooling system is the biggest energy user in your home. Here are some ways to save energy with your HVAC equipment for Earth Day and every day.

Sarasota, FL (April 21, 2014): When you consider the biggest energy users in your home, your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system is at the top of the list. According to Energy Star, 46% of your combined energy use goes toheating and cooling.[i]  Technicians at One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating North NJ® maintain and install these systems every day and offer these tips to save energy as we focus on the environment for Earth Day:

  • Change your air filter regularly
    Change your air filter monthly or as required by your system’s manufacturer. A dirty air filter makes your system work harder and not as efficiently as possible. This can increase your energy use.
  • Tune up your HVAC equipment
    Having a professional tune up of your heating and cooling system can improve its efficiency and catch problems before they become costly.
  • Install a programmable thermostat
    These allow you to precisely control the temperature in your home. You can program it to use less energy while you’re away or asleep at night.
  • Seal your heating and cooling ducts
    Ducts move air from your heating and cooling system through your home. You can help improve the efficiency of your system by sealing your ducts.
