Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) December 31, 2014
Homeowners in the valley area are always looking for ways to save energy during the summer, but the experts at Brewer One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating urge Phoenix residents to consider these year-round changes as part of their HVAC upkeep:
The right thermostat or system controller allows the HVAC system to be set to reflect appropriate temperatures when the home is occupied versus empty, so an empty home isn’t being heated or cooled for no reason. This will result in significant savings on monthly energy bills. Modern system controls feature touch screens and WiFi options, which enable control of the system from a cell phone or tablet.
50-70% of energy bills in the home go towards heating and cooling expenses according to the United States Department of Energy. To avoid loss of warm indoor air during the winter season (as well as cool air during the summer), make sure the home is properly insulated. Check windows and doors for areas of draft that could be causing the home to waste and lose energy.
Annual HVAC System Maintenance
Even heating systems that are only used a few months out of the year need annual maintenance checks in order to continue to work effectively (and also to comply with some warranties). The wintertime is also an excellent time to receive an air conditioning maintenance service to ensure the system will be working when the extreme summer temperatures hit.
Check Air Duct System
Flaws in an air duct system can create issues for heating and cooling units without homeowners realizing where the problem lies. If a home’s ductwork is leaking large amounts of air, this is energy lost and the cost is reflected in the energy bill. Make sure to have ducts checked while receiving annual system maintenance.
HVAC System Size
When the cost of repairs add up and it’s time to upgrade to a new HVAC system, it’s essential for maximum efficiency that the correct-sized unit be installed. A heating or cooling unit that is too large or too small for the home will not cycle properly or regulate temperature evenly, which will cost more to operate.
