As temperatures continue to increase with the warm months of spring and summer, it’s common for homeowners to utilize their cooling systems more frequently. However, running your cooling system more often can cause an increase in your home’s energy consumption and monthly utility costs. Continue reading to identify two ways you can reduce the cooling costs in your home while preserving your home’s cooling system and comfort levels during the warm seasons.
Invest in a Smart Thermostat
A smart thermostat is a key HVAC accessory that can make your HVAC’s cooling system more energy efficient. It can learn and adjust the temperature settings in your home without your input, based on outdoor temperatures, your preferred temperature settings, or you can adjust the temperatures yourself to run on a specific schedule both manually and remotely. Smart thermostats also allow you to track and monitor the efficiency of your home’s HVAC system. Investing in a smart thermostat is an excellent way to enhance your home’s comfort levels and the efficiency of your cooling system. It can also help you reduce your home’s energy consumption and reduce the costs of your monthly utility bills.
Listed below are some of the benefits linked to installing a smart thermostat in your home:
- Easy installation
- Remote access
- Increased Energy-efficiency
- Temperature regulation
Scheduling Routine HVAC Maintenance
Routine HVAC maintenance is vital in ensuring that your cooling system is running efficiently and helps you detect minor issues, such as faulty parts or outdated equipment, before they become major repairs or replacements. When your cooling system doesn’t receive routine maintenance, it can begin to run inefficiently, consuming a surplus of energy, resulting in an increased utility bill, and is more susceptible to malfunction or shut down completely. Having your HVAC system serviced regularly by an HVAC technician is the best way to prevent expensive repair costs and utility bills.
Listed below are some of the services provided when you schedule your HVAC system to receive routine maintenance:
- HVAC visual inspection
- HVAC system diagnostics
- Checking/changing/cleaning air filters
- Checking/cleaning air ducts
- Re-calibrating your system
- Cleaning the exterior unit
- Refilling/recharging/replacing refrigerant
- Cleaning the AC evaporator and condenser coils
- Update/upgrade HVAC systems and accessories
- HVAC repairs/replacement
