Save Energy On Earth Day & Every Day
Every year people around the world celebrate Earth Day in an effort to “go green” and support environmental protection. Saving energy in your home is a great way to do your part for the environment every day of the year while also saving money.
Here are just a few ways that you can make your home more energy efficient, starting with your heating and cooling system:
Change Air Filters
Changing the filter in your furnace once every month will help to keep it from becoming too dirty and overworking your entire heating and cooling system. This will also help to clean the air in your home. For even cleaner air, consider upgrading to a Perfect Air Plus or any of our other indoor air quality products.
Use A Wi-Fi Thermostat
You can save energy simply by programming your thermostat. Setting your thermostat at a higher temperature while you are away from home during the warmer summer months is a great way to keep your air conditioner or heat pump from using unnecessary energy when no one is home.
Schedule Routine Maintenance
Having your air conditioner and furnace tuned up every year is a great way to make sure that they continue to run at peak efficiency. A tune-up will also help you to extend the life of your system.
Upgrade Your Heating And Cooling
If your existing heating and cooling system is becoming old and outdated, replacing it with a high-efficiency, variable speed system could help you to save energy. A variable speed air conditioner will run longer and at lower speeds in order to keep your home cooler while reducing the energy that would be used for the constant stops, starts, and higher speeds of a lower efficiency system.
