3 Energy Efficiency Tips to Help You Save Money

3 Energy Efficiency Tips to Help You Save Money

What if you could help preserve the environment and money at the same time? Most of us would love to do that, which is where energy efficient tips come in. Bunn’s and Bennett Heating and Air would like to present three energy efficient tips for homeowners in the Tennessee Valley. You can reduce the costs of powering your home by becoming more efficient with actions you can take today.

1. Use a Programmable Thermostat

All too often we see homeowners who have a programmable thermostat installed but they never use it. This is one of the best ways to make your house energy efficient. Start by programming your thermostat to adjust the temperature in your home when you are at work or away for a length of time. For winter months, set the thermostat for the heating system lower. In the summer and on warm days raise the temperature on your air conditioning. According to the US Department of Energy, this will cut your energy costs by 10 percent.

2. Schedule Professional HVAC Maintenance

When is the last time you had HVAC maintenance conducted? Typically, homeowners wait until their heating and air conditioning system is broken before they call for service. However, by getting routine maintenance for your HVAC system, you reduce the chances of this happening. Through scheduled checkups, Bunn’s and Bennett technicians have the opportunity to identify potential issues. Rather than waiting to wake up to a chaotic summer morning without air conditioning, let our experts keep a preventative check on your system.

3. Hang Window Shades and Coverings

If your windows are bare or barely shaded, you might be suffering every month with your power bill. Purchase window blinds, shades, or curtains that are designed to block out UV rays. These will offer the best protection against the elements. Close window shades or curtains to block sunlight from heating the interior during the hottest part of the day. By the evening, shades and coverings serve as a form of insulation against the thin glass pane. This will regulate the temperature of your rooms and home overall.
