For most homeowners in Aldan, PA, a top concern heading into the fall season is keeping their heating bills low without risking indoor comfort. One of our top recommendations to achieve this is to boost your HVAC system efficiency. To help you with that, below are some tips for improving residential HVAC efficiency.

Upgrade Your Thermostat

Traditional thermostats made temperature control possible when central AC first came to be. However, these thermostats are far from the most energy-efficient option available today. Upgrading to programmable thermostats that feature innovative additions will boost your HVAC’s efficiency and convenience.

Many newer models of thermostats allow for remote control and feature programs to suit your routine, often reducing energy consumption and HVAC runtime. Consequently, you may not need to heat your home the entire day while you’re absent from your home. The remote control allows you to turn the HVAC on when you get close to your home. You can also program it to turn itself off at night when everyone is finally asleep.

Consider Insulation

Insulation helps keep your home warmer for longer, with no need to operate your HVAC to keep you warm continuously. Proper insulation tackles heat loss, which causes uneven heating and cooling in your home. As a result of uneven heating, you overwork your system, further compromising its efficiency.

Proper insulation is necessary if you look to cut down your energy bills. It also directly complements the performance of your HVAC system, making it more energy-efficient. While we don’t offer insulation services at AirMaster Heating & Cooling Specialists, we recommend that homeowners take the time to evaluate their insulation and make any needed improvements.

Maintain the Right Airflow

Airflow in your home plays a vital role in the effectiveness of your HVAC system and the comfort level in your home. Poor airflow may occur due to a variety of HVAC problems that also alter your system’s efficiency. Inadequate airflow may be a result of dirty air filters, blocked vents, or improperly installed ductwork. Calling in for an HVAC inspection and maintenance service this fall will help to ensure optimal airflow throughout your home.

An energy-efficient system means maximum comfort and reduced carbon footprint and utility expenses. So, contact AirMaster Heating & Cooling Specialists and hire our HVAC technicians for HVAC repairs, maintenance, or installation.
