Now more than ever people are taking extra steps to save energy and live a more environmentally friendly life. Simple steps like turning down the air conditioner or switching to LED light bulbs will save you money, help the environment and put you in the main stream among an elite club of neighbors that are doing the same thing. If your neighbors are doing something that saves them money and it contributes to the good of the environment, then most likely you will want to do the same. Peer pressure is extremely powerful, and when used for good, can make quite an impact.
Lowering HVAC Energy Consumption & Cost
Simple steps can make it very easy to make your home run on less energy. Drastic reductions in heating, cooling and electricity costs can be accomplished through very simple changes. The majority of your energy costs go towards heating and cooling your home throughout the year. In the summer time and warm parts of the year, installing ceiling fans in every room will help keep the air cool within your house and your air conditioning unit will not have to work as hard to keep your home at the desired temperature. Replacing air filters on a regular basis will also help to lower energy costs, making it easy for your unit to force air in and out of the home.
Thermostat Location and Temperature Settings
Setting your thermostat to an appropriate temperature is a good way to conserve energy and lower energy costs. If your thermometer is close to a light or other source of heat, you may want to consider relocating it. Thermostats that sit too closely to a heat source will cause your air conditioning unit to run constantly, because your thermostat will register at a temperature that is higher than the actual temperature inside of your home. This can result in an over-heated unit and shut down of your entire system.
Professional Air Conditioning Inspections
Regular inspections performed by a professional on your air conditioning and heating systems will ensure that you do not run into any unexpected problems, especially when you are relying on your unit at specific times of the year to stay warm or keep cool. Regular maintenance visits are a great way to stay energy efficient and will save you money from any major repairs in the future. Your neighbors enlist the help of Ambient Heating and Air Conditioning throughout the year to ensure that they are saving money and conserving energy.
