Hey folks. Your friendly HVAC specialist is here with a tip to help reduce your energy bills.
One of the worst ways that you can find out that your HVAC system is on the fritz is by noticing a spike in your energy bills. Of course, this isn’t often how it ends up working out. For most HVAC systems, a reduction in efficiency is felt slowly, over time. The energy bill might be a little more expensive than it was last year, but have utility fees increased? Most folks, so long as the HVAC unit is keeping them cool in the summer, and warm in the winter, aren’t going to notice the issue until one day they scratch their head and bill seems to be absurdly out of control.
Your Gas-Powered Furnace Relies On Electricity
A forced air heating system relies on a blower that runs on electricity in order to push air through the ducts. Anything that impedes that process will not only require the blower’s motor to work harder in order to warm the room, but it will also require more energy to use, driving up your electric bill. Sometimes the issue is a bad duct work, dirty ducts, dirty filters, or a thermostat that isn’t working quite right, and other times the system itself is just too dang old!
One of the upsides of consumers becoming more energy conscious is that the newer Energy Star rated HVAC units economize the amount of energy required to heat and cool your home. This results in lower energy bills and a lower carbon footprint. But even older systems can be made more efficient by preparing your home for the winter and summer months.
Winter and Summer is When Your HVAC Unit Works the Hardest
Even Energy Star rated HVAC systems need to be maintained, and the best time to do that is in the Spring and Fall when they get a bit of time off from working so hard.
