There are many things you could and should due to save money and our environment.
First tip is to change your air filter on a regular basis, this will reduce particles from entering your system that cause components to overwork and become less efficient. Filters can reduce microorganisms from building up in your air handler and duct systems. By changing your filter you are allowing the air in your system to flow more freely than it would with a filter that is clogged or partially clogged subsequently reducing the electricity used to run the system.
Next, having a programmable thermostat installed and have it set to run at a higher temperature at times of the day when it is not necessary to run it cooler. Remember that for cooling 78 degrees is a good setpoint and every degree below that is approximately 10% more electricity used and 68 degrees when heating.There are many different options when choosing a thermostat so let our highly trained professionals assist you.
