Ways To Improve The Energy Efficiency of Your HVAC System

Live in comfort, and lower your HVAC bills!

A residential heating and air conditioning system plays an important role in your comfort. When you improve the energy efficiency of your system, not only does your comfort improve, but you’ll notice lower utility bills, and a reduced carbon footprint. In this article, we are going to share a few ways to make your HVAC system run more efficiently.

Our top tips include:

  • Increase your home insulation
  • Get your ducts sealed
  • Perform routine maintenance
  • Change air filters regularly

Improve Your Home Insulation

When air escapes from your home, your HVAC system is required to work harder to get your indoor climate to the ideal temperature. So to avoid this from happening, make sure you have your home properly insulated!

It is also important to make sure your ducts are insulated as well.

Get Your Ducts Sealed

It is common for flex ductwork to rip and tear with time for multiple reasons. The most common culprit are rodents tearing them up. However, they can also rip and tear naturally with age as they expand.

If you are noticing air leaking into the attic or crawl space, contact a professional such as Quality Contracting to have your ducts sealed and repaired.

Perform Routine Maintenance

To ensure optimal operation and to extend the lifespan of your HVAC system, have a professional Chesapeake HVAC company perform routine maintenance at least twice a year. At Quality Contracting Electrical & HVAC, we have comprehensive maintenance plans that provide everything you need for your routine maintenance needs!

To get started with our maintenance plan, call our office today at (757) 752-7077

Change Your Air Filter Regularly

It is important to change your air filter once every 30-60 days. Your filter is what returns clean air to your system, when your filter is dirty or clogged, it not only allows dirty air into your system, lowering your indoor air quality, but it can force the system to work harder, causing costly repairs.

If you have dog or cats in your home, you’ll need to change it once every 30 days as their fur and dander can easily cause the filter to get clogged up.
