When your HVAC system isn’t running efficiently it wastes both energy and money. There are upgrades you can make that can increase efficiency, save money and prolong the life of your system.
A smart thermostat will take the guesswork out of keeping your home comfortable, and it will save you 10-20% on your heating bill. If you have trouble remembering to adjust your thermostat when you leave for work or before you go to bed at night, then this is a must-have!
We would recommend hiring a professional for this task as you can lose 60% of your climate-controlled air before the air even reaches the inside of your home if ductwork is not insulated correctly.
Ideally, humidity in your home should be between 30% and 50%. Low humidity can cause dry skin, irritate your nose and throat and make your eyes itchy. High humidity can trigger the growth of harmful bacteria, dust mites and molds which cause respiratory problems and trigger allergy and asthma flare-ups. Ensuring your home humidity is maintained at healthy levels will create a much more comfortable space and will also improve air quality.
An Air Vent Booster is simply a fan that goes inside the ductwork and will work for any of your rooms that are either hotter or colder than the rest of your home (depending on the season).
It may be time to trade in your old unit with one that is more energy efficient. Replacing an old system with an energy efficient unit can save you 20-40% on your home energy costs. Newer units have features to save you money on your electricity bill and will also work more effectively at keeping your home comfortable. When choosing a new system be sure to get quality advice on what size to buy. A system that is either too small or too large can end up costing you in the long run on your heating bill.
