HVAC efficiency is important to keep your utility costs low, and for the overall health of your system. Here are 4 tips to increase your HVAC efficiency this season and into the next.
- Proper Insulation
Proper insulation in your attic is key for HVAC efficiency. You’ll be able to reduce the amount of heat your house is taking on, and your system won’t have to work as hard.
- Weather Stripping
Make sure your house is sealed off and won’t allow outside air to get in the home. Use proper weather stripping on your doors and windows.
- Dark Shades, Shutters, and Windows
If you have darker shades or tinted windows, they will help make sure your house is energy efficient.
- Programmable Thermostats
There are many different types of programmable thermostats that will help your energy usage. It’s important to set them to your needs so that when you’re away from the house, the temperature isn’t too high or low and is comfortable when you get home.
