As summer transitions into fall, you can start preparing your Phoenix area home for the colder weather. There are some things that you can do to save money on your energy bills. When you start using your heating system more, consider these five energy-saving tips for your home.
1. Check for Air Leaks
Fall is a great time to check for air leaks. It is a good idea to check on the windows and doors throughout your home. Weatherstripping is the perfect solution to keep warm air in your house as you shut out the cold air.
2. Replace Those Filters
Clogged air filters can lead to higher energy bills. A dirty filter can also reduce your heater’s efficiency as it uses more energy consumption. In addition to that, the HVAC unit will need to work harder to keep your home warm on a chilly night.
3. Tune-Up Your Heating System
Before the frigid weather comes to town, you will want to conduct a tune-up on your system. A professional can check your system for the upcoming season. At Collins Comfort Masters, our technicians can make sure your heating unit is ready for winter in the Gilbert area.
4. Change Your Ceiling Fan Blade Direction
Ceiling fans are often used to cool down a hot room. You can use those same ceiling fans during the winter as well. The ceiling fan blades should move in a clockwise position to push the warm air down in the room. This easy fix can help you save some money on energy bills.
5. Lower Your Water Heater Temperature
The water heater is a high energy consumer in your home. When you turn down the temperature on the unit, you can make your water heater a little more efficient.
