If you are looking to save on utility costs this summer there are many steps you can take. Taking time for vacation and fun in the sun is a must, and you need just enough cash to do so. Here at HHR Heating and Cooling we’ve compiled a few ways you can cut back on energy costs starting with your HVAC system. Here’s how!
- Zone control – If you haven’t tried a zone control system yet you may be missing out on a ton of savings. Being able to control temperatures more effectively in particular areas of the home can keep you from racking up bills.
- Go Ductless – Many ductless systems have SEER ratings that reach over 20 providing more energy efficient air as opposed to its competitors of central duct systems and units.. Energy loss is less frequent since air doesn’t have to travel through ducts and your home air is conditioned more efficiently.
- Turn it off – If you are going away for a number of days turn off your AC. This may seem common but many have the misconception that leaving air on to avoid having to re-condition the air is a better option. That is only the case if you are leaving the house for several minutes and hours; so if you’re heading out of town be sure to shut it down.
