Energy Tips

  • Regular Maintenance
    • Make sure your system is cleaned and inspected annually to ensure the system is in working order. We recommend a Spring AC clean and check and a Fall furnace clean and check. See our Service agreements for the best price!
  • Change Your Filter
    • We recommended your HVAC filter be changed every 1-3 months, and after any remodeling in the home. Clogged filters can restrict air flow, causing issues and dust your system.
  • Ensure Your Home is Sealed and Insulated
    • Air leaks around windows, doors and other areas around your home can make your HVAC system inefficient, and drive utility bills to rise. Inspect windows and doors for correct weather-stripping, caulking and proper closure. Make sure walls, ceilings and attics are properly insulated according to building standards.
  • Keep Vents Clean and Clear
    • Keep furniture, bookshelves, plants, rugs, and more away from vents to allow proper air flow. Make sure to clean your vents to ensure a clean system working properly.
  • Use Curtains, Drapes and Blinds
    • Window coverings can significantly change your home’s HVAC system operation. Energy Saver states that you can reduce heat gains by up to 33% and reduce heat loss by 10% simply from installing draperies.
  • Crank The Fan
    • Using fans in your home to regulate the indoor air flow can allow you savings on your utility bills. This can take load off your HVAC system, allowing the savings.
