Top 10 Tips To Save Energy This Winter

Moving into the holiday season, we tend to get busy, becoming preoccupied with preparation and participation in all the holiday-related fun stuff.

However, before things get too hectic, we at Lebanon Heating & Cooling suggest doing a quick check of your home’s heating system to ensure you have the comfort you’ll need in the most energy-efficient way possible. Primarily, this means keeping up with your maintenance schedule to avoid breakdowns, unexpected costs, and energy leakage.

A little time, attention and effort now will serve you well in the winter months ahead having peace of mind your system is in its prime

  1. Professional HVAC System Inspection

Quite simply, there’s no substitute for professional maintenance prior to every heating season. During a routine visit, we come out to your home and examine your system to ensure everything is working properly, tuning it up and performing a whole list of tasks and cleanings. Ideally, it’s best to schedule maintenance appointments long before any gatherings, events or holiday parties. Autumn is the best time to get your home ready for winter’s rigorous demands.

  1. Replacing Outdated, Antiquated Heating Systems

Antiquated heating systems are massive drains of energy, inefficiencies that waste untold amounts of money. Having a reputable contractor analyze your HVAC system’s efficiency, its energy use and performance can give you an idea of how much money you’re wasting. Although system upgrades cost money, in the long-term they pay off in comfort, energy efficiency and peace of mind. When a system is more than 10 years old, usually it’s time to replace it with the latest models of high-efficiency systems that can cut your energy costs down by up to 40 percent less than what it would have cost. 

  1. Check Insulation

The amount of insulation you have in your attic has a major impact on your HVAC system’s optimal performance. We suggest lightening the load on your system by ensuring your attic has sufficient insulation, at least enough to keep warm air inside and prevent it from escaping through the roof. With an ample amount of attic insulation, your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard to control temperature, and this saves energy.

  1. Upgrade Your Thermostat

One great way to slash down energy costs in the winter is to upgrade your thermostat to one that has better control of your indoor air temperature. Smart thermostats and programmable thermostats are great options that pay for themselves. These smart devices know when you’re away and when you’re home and adjust temperature levels accordingly to save money. 

  1. Upgrade All Your Systems at Once

Although cooling your home is the last thing on your mind in the winter, nonetheless when upgrading a heating system, often you can save even more money and energy by purchasing both heating and cooling systems at the same time.

  1. Change or Clean Air Filters

When your HVAC filters become dirty, they restrict the flow of air and decrease the energy efficiency of your whole system. Autumn is the ideal time to clean or replace your air filters, and moving into the winter this needs to be repeated every one to three months depending on how fast it gets dirty.

  1. Keep Vents and Registers Open and Free

Go around the house and check all your vents and registers to make sure they are all open, clean and clear of anything that could be blocking them like rugs, furniture, or draperies.

  1. Reprogram Your Thermostat

Check and see if you are comfortable with indoor air that is any cooler than what you currently have it set to. If you can lower your thermostat, you will save substantial amounts of energy and money with this lower setting.

  1. Find Air Drafts

For this tip, you’ll want to go around the house inspecting room by room for air leakage, cracks, air drafts allowing cool air in and warm air out. This is especially the case around doors and windows, which are more susceptible. . 

  1. Learn More About Energy Efficiency

Stay up-to-date and current on energy efficiency in your residence with an ongoing education of things like this, along with other HVAC system repairs and maintenance.
