3 Simple Ways to Make Your Home Energy Efficient

April 20, 2019

Your heating and cooling system is your home’s biggest consumer of energy. When you take steps to decrease how hard your HVAC system needs to work, you save both money and energy. Fortunately, there are simple steps you can take to cut down on your home’s energy usage. Here are a few ways to make your home more energy efficient.

1. Programmable Thermostat

Programmable thermostats are an excellent way to cut down on your daily energy usage. Instead of your thermostat running all day long, a programmable thermostat can be set so the temperature changes throughout the day. Even adjusting your thermostat by a few degrees can save a significant amount of money and energy.

2. Seal Your Home’s Air Ducts

Did you know that, according to Energy Star, up to 30% of the air that moves through your home’s ductwork is lost due to leaks? Your heating and cooling system has to work much harder than usual to make up for all that lost air. This can get expensive! To fix the issue of leaky air ducts, you can have a professional from Nacogdoches Sheet Metal, Plumbing & Air Conditioning, LTD. do an inspection and seal any leaks or holes they find.

3. Routine Maintenance

Routine maintenance will keep your HVAC system running at peak performance all year long. Heavy usage during winter and summer months take a toll on your heating and cooling system, but it’s nothing that can’t be solved by a routine tune-up. When we tune up your system, we’ll inspect the components, clean away any dust or debris, and identify any potential problems before they get worse.
