Tips for Managing Your HVAC Utility Costs

ames_air_conditioningManaging HVAC utility costs is always a widespread concern among homeowners and business owners alike; with costs on the whole rising as years pass, it becomes increasingly important to maintain manageable utility bills. Fortunately, new technologies, developments and methods are introduced to help with this very thing.

A main source of concern for many people and utility costs is their HVAC systems and the costs associated with running them. It’s important that you always make sure your system is in top working order – every year, you need to make an appointment to have a qualified air conditioning repair company perform a routine check-up and preventive maintenance on your furnace and air conditioner/heat pump. He or she will also be able to check filters and your ventilation ducts for leaks or other issues. If your system is more than 10 years old, you may want to consider a replacement with a state of the art, energy-efficient system. Replacing inefficient, outdated systems with new ones can save you hundreds of dollars each year.

When you are running maintenance checks on your filters and your system, be sure that you mark on your calendar reminders to change that filter; during seasons of heavy use, you should normally switch the dirty filter in your system for a clean one about once per month. During seasons of lighter use, normally a change every other month is sufficient. Make sure the area around your outdoor AC unit and your furnace are clear and free of debris, dust and dirt for maximum air flow as well.

When it comes to saving money on your energy bills, especially on your HVAC costs, remember the most important things you can do is have Neighbors heating and cooling of Ames professional come out once per year for an inspection and replace outdated, inefficient furnaces and air conditioners with new energy-efficient equipment.
