Three Tips to Save on Energy Bills

If you’re like me then you’re always on the lookout for tips to help save money. Especially now when it seems that everything is going up in price! I did some research, and came up with the top three tips to help save on your energy bills that I wanted to pass along to you.

1. Check your filters!

This is extremely important as a clogged, or dirty filter will cause your system to work harder to get the air to flow through your home. It’s recommended that you check your filters monthly especially during heavy heating and cooling months.

2. Regular Tune Ups!

I know I’ve mentioned it before, but it truly is the best way to ensure that your system is running at peak efficiency. Remember that reliable performance from your comfort system doesn’t just happen. Like a car your home comfort system requires regular tune ups to be able to run efficiently. If you have a heat pump or gas furnace with air conditioner it’s recommended that it’s tuned up twice per year, once in the cooling season and once in the heating season. If you have a gas furnace only it’s recommended once per year during the heating season. This is especially important for older systems!

3. Seal Windows and Doorways

This one is pretty well known, but it’s still serves as an important reminder. If you have any leaks or cracks, seal them up! This will result in less air being leaked through causing your heating system to work extra hard.

Give these tips a try, and make a difference in your monthly bill!
