On average, heating and air conditioning costs account for nearly half of a household's utility bill. Some of these costs may be money wasted. The following are some of our best tips on how to cut the cost of your utility bill and save on air conditioning and heating.
One of the best ways to lower your utility bill this year is to have regular service performed on your air conditioning and heating systems. Routine maintenance can improve the functionality and efficiency of your air conditioner and heater, which can cut down on your electricity bill.
If your air conditioner or heater is past its prime, consider investing in a new one. New systems can be nearly two times more efficient than older models. Over time, a new air conditioner or heater will save you money and reduce your emissions.
Update your current ductwork. Old or leaky ductwork can decrease the output of your heating and cooling systems, not to mention lower the air quality in your home. Having your ducts replaced, repaired, or sealed is one of the best ways to insulate your home and save energy.
With a programmable thermostat and timer, you can program your air conditioner or heater to automatically turn off at specific times when you know you'll be away.
Check and change your filters regularly, and make sure heaters and air conditioners are free of dirt and dust. A clean machine and filter will improve the performance of your air conditioner or heater.
Adjust the temperature of your thermostat to be as close to the outside temperature as comfortably possible. It takes much less energy to heat or cool a house when the difference between the outside and the inside is minimal. Believe it or not, each degree Fahrenheit you change makes a significant difference on your energy bill.
When running your machine, try to keep doors and windows shut to prevent loss of energy, and keep ceiling fans running to circulate the air in your house. Shade your house in the summer with awnings and blinds, and always let the sun in during the winter.
