During the continual fluctuation of external temperatures, we hear all sorts of complaints as to how high energy bills are and why individuals simply are not able to afford their monthly utility bills.
We can all feel the pinch of higher energy costs, but that does not mean there isn’t anything that can be done.
In fact, with the help of a few minor upgrades and changes, it is possible to save a considerable amount of money every month.
Our services can cut down the monthly utility bills during both the winter and summer months.
Clean Vents Equal Lower Bills
A major problem area is the ventilation system of a home.
Over time, these vents become corroded and dirty with dust, pet hair, dander and all sorts of other debris. Regardless of what it is, the buildup of material reduces the airflow of the heating and cooling system.
This forces the HVAC equipment to work extra hard, driving up utility bills. On top of this, it also reduces the quality of the air inside of a home.
That is exactly why we always recommend cleaning out the ventilation system annually.
This improves the air quality in the home, and it also significantly improves the utility bill and energy consumption on a monthly basis.
Because the vents are clean, treated air flows through the vents smoothly so the furnace and AC unit does not have to work as hard.
Upgrade Thermostat for Upgraded Savings
A small fix is often going to make the largest impact.
This is true in regards to a new thermostat. A programmable thermostat is excellent for saving money throughout the year.
This way, homeowners are able to program the furnace or AC to cut down energy usage while they are gone and then heat the home or cool it down to the desired temperature right before they make it back home.
There are control-panel based thermostats, and now it is even possible to purchase equipment that is controlled over a smartphone application.
This way, individuals can alter their thermostat if they are not going to be home or if they are coming home early.
With a simple upgrade, any home can drastically cut down on their energy consumption and improve their monthly utility bills throughout the year.
