It’s a new year and each new year I like to discover the best energy saving tips I can.
I think this year I have put a lot of focus on the world of HVAC. You can save a lot of energy in your house if you can figure out how to cut down on your HVAC costs. A lot of people don’t really realize how much energy their heating and cooling system uses, but I can assure you that it is a lot. My HVAC technician gave me these really great energy saving tips that I am about to share with you. The first of my HVAC energy saving strategies is that you should have your windows properly insulated. A lot of people, even some HVAC technicians, forget how important window insulation is. You can have the best HVAC system but if all of the conditioned air is flowing out of the windows it’s no use to you! The next energy saving tip I have for you is to set your thermostat a degree or two lower, or higher in the summer, than what you would normally set your HVAC system to. You will see a dramatic increase in your HVAC bill just by adjusting your thermostat by one degree. Many people don’t believe me when I tell them that their thermostat can save them money, but it is true. The best thing that you should get in 2019 is a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat will really change your world and it’s something that I wish I had when I was a young man. If I had a smart thermostat back in the day I would have saved so much money and I would have been much more comfortable with my HVAC system.
