Trying to stay ahead of the game when paying your utility bills can be frustrating for most homeowners. It may feel like you are underwater and every time you break the surface, you are pulled under again. While we can never make those utility bills disappear, Kotz Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing can help you stay afloat. We can also help you avoid costly repairs and extend the life of your system.
Scheduling regular ac maintenance and tune-ups are the most important thing you can do. This will keep your cooling and heating system running economically and efficiently, which is the best way to reduce those utility bills. Changing your air filters on a regular basis is a crucial part of regular maintenance, an easy, do-it-yourself task that promotes better air flow and enhances air quality. Here are a few other energy-saving tips:
- Seal your house. Eliminating the amount of air that leaks out – or in – from cracks or gaps around windows and doors will be an immediate cost cutter.
- Don’t cool an empty house – turn up your thermostat when you are gone. If you have a programmable thermostat, make sure you use it.
- Uncovered windows are heat-generating magnifying glasses during the brightest and hottest part of the day, so keep them closed.
- Identify problem rooms that require more effort to cool than others. Try to refrain from cranking up the A/C in an effort to make these uncomfortable rooms comfortable. This causes undue wear and tear on your system.
