3 Easy Ways to Be More Energy Efficient
Energy usage is one of the biggest expenses for your home, but there are many steps you can take to reduce this use of energy. Mario's AC has been helping our customers save energy for many years, and if you implement these methods, then you will save energy as well as money.
1. Weatherize Your Home
You could be losing energy from air leaks around your home. Typical places in your home that are sources for air leaks are windows, doors, and vents. Apply caulk between window frames and walls and place weather stripping around windows and doors. Cover areas around vents, pipes, and wiring with tape or other sealants. Since a lot of the heat escaping from the vents and other small openings travels to your attic area, it is a good idea to better insulate this area in order to get the full benefit of weatherizing your residence.
2. Install a Programmable Thermostat
A programmable thermostat allows you to adjust your home’s interior temperature for designated cycles of time. You can also set the temperature remotely with certain “smart” programmable thermostats. Using adjusted thermostat settings for extended lengths of time when you do not need much warming or cooling is a great way to save energy costs. Mario's AC can help you choose a programmable thermostat and show you how you can start saving money immediately.
3. Install an Energy Efficient Heating and Cooling System
If your heating and cooling system is an older model, it could be time to replace your old system if your energy bills are becoming increasingly higher.
