How Your HVAC System Can Help Lower Your Energy Bills

Sky-high energy bills getting you down? We don’t blame you; it always stings to get a hefty bill at the end of the month, especially if it’s not for a big, fun purchase. Luckily, though there is a way out—through energy-efficient windows and the like, of course, but also through your HVAC system!

Take it from an HVAC contractor: When you’ve got the right machinery and the right HVAC services caring for it, your heating and cooling can radically change the way your home uses energy, slicing your bills to shreds. Furnace Doctors is here with all the ways that your home’s comfort system can cut down on your monthly energy expenditures.

Clean Filters Make for Efficient Machines

If you want to save money with a pre-existing system, start with the part you’re probably most familiar with: your filter. These devices are an important part of maintaining your residential indoor air quality, as they catch harmful particulates, like pet dander and (ew!) even dust mites, before they can recirculate into your home.

If you want to get the full picture of how hardworking these filters are, check out some of the dastardly foes they combat in “Three Common Airborne Pollutants and What They Do to Your Health.”

When it comes to your energy bills, though, maintaining your filter lets your heating and cooling systems breathe easy and work efficiently, minimizing your spending.

Clean Coils Keep Your Machines in the Game

Whether you’ve got a furnace or an A/C unit or both, many times you heating and cooling systems work with structures called “coils” to manage your home’s temperature. If these coils are left uncleaned, your system’s efficiency will slowly begin to deteriorate, as it will need to work around all that gunk to have the desired effect on your home’s air.

Keeping them regularly cleaned with a furnace maintenance plan or an A/C maintenance plan, however, means your machines will never need to work against the odds—and use more power than they’d need otherwise.

Think Ahead to Program Your Systems

Remembering to turn down the cooling or heating when you’re not home can pay huge financial dividends in the long run. If you’re lucky enough to have a programmable thermostat, take advantage of it and input your entire weekly schedule. You won’t need to think about your HVAC system running or not from then on out—you just get to save.
