With multiple heat waves striking Bath, Pennsylvania, homeowners are looking to keep their energy bills as low as possible. Saving energy during the summer starts with taking a few simple steps. By making use of HVAC smart technology, you can save money on utilities and remain comfortable in your home. Here are two easy ways to conserve energy this summer.
Install a Smart Thermostat
You may have already heard good things about smart thermostats from your neighbors or friends. Installing one is an easy way to increase the energy efficiency in your home. Smart thermostats allow you to program specific temperatures for different times of the day — like when you’re at work, and the house is empty, for example — and different temperatures for specific rooms in the home.
Smart thermostats offer more convenience than regular programmable thermostats because they have Wi-Fi connectivity capabilities. This function allows you to get access to and adjust your thermostat with your smartphone from practically any location. Most smart thermostats will even send you diagnostics of your HVAC energy usage that show you where you might be wasting money, so you’ll know exactly how and when you should adjust the temperature.
Start a Maintenance Plan
Preventive maintenance conducted by a licensed HVAC technician takes your HVAC system to the next level of efficiency. It includes regular check-ups, cleaning, and any needed parts repair and replacement. Preventive maintenance increases the system’s lifespan and effectiveness by catching molehill-sized problems and fixing them before they become mountains. Sullivan Oil & Propane offers a maintenance plan that gives you priority service, ensuring that your HVAC system is always in good hands.
Saving money on your energy bills is as simple as taking these two simple steps. Before long, you’ll be able to put those savings towards something else that you want or need.
