11 Ways to Reduce Air Conditioning and Heating Service Costs


Throughout the year, people are looking to reduce the money that they spend every month in order to keep more money in their pockets. One of the ways that they do this is by evaluating the amount of money spent on their air conditioning and heating service in Decatur. Here are 11 ways that you can work to save money this winter:

1. Schedule an Energy Audit

An energy audit is conducted by a professional who will examine the energy usage throughout your home. This individual can find areas in your home that are allowing too much heat out of your home. You can use the information that they provide to make sure that you're not losing too much energy unnecessarily.

2. Purchase Energy Efficient Equipment

Older units aren't as energy efficient. This equipment is operating at levels that waste energy. If you have older equipment, you should consider purchasing new equipment with higher Energy Star ratings.

3. Seal Air Leaks

During the energy audit, a professional will tell you where air is leaking from your home. It could be due to older weather stripping along your doors, cracks around your windows, cracks in the foundation, or open areas around pipes and utility cables. You can seal these areas to prevent air from leaking out of your home.  

4. Install a Programmable Thermostat

A programmable thermostat will allow you to reduce the temperature in your home when you're away from the house. By reducing the temperature during the day or while you're warm and cozy in your bed, you'll notice increased savings every month.

5. Improve the Insulation

Your energy audit will also check the insulation in your attic and crawlspaces. You may need to add insulation to ensure that you're not losing heat in these areas of your home.

6. Replace Your Windows

Windows often have cracks around them that allow cool air into your home and the heat out of your home. There are special windows that you can purchase to help seal the air into your home and prevent the cold air from getting into your house.

7. Rearrange the Furniture

Make sure that there isn't any furniture blocking the vents in your home. You can also pull your beds and chairs away from windows and doors, which tend to be the coldest areas of your home.

8. Direct the Airflow

Are there areas of your home that you rarely use? Then why spend the money to heat those rooms? You can close the vents in these rooms to make sure that the heat is only getting to the areas of the home that need the heat.

9. Schedule Tune-Ups

When your heater is working properly and efficiently, it's going to reduce the costs. To do this, you need to have your heater checked out on a regular basis. Tune-ups are a great way to have your heaters serviced, so you can repair them before larger problems develop.

10. Replace the Air Filter

Make sure to replace your air filter every few months. If your air filter gets dirty or clogged, your system will have to work harder to push the air through. Have your filter cleaned or replaced to prevent this.

11. Use Natural Sunlight

During the day, pull back your drapes and allow the sun into your home. The sun is a great way to naturally warm up your home.

As you take deliberate steps to make your air conditioning and heating service in Decatur as efficient as possible and lock the heat in your home, you'll find that you can reduce your energy use and utility bills in the process.
