When you need an HVAC Contractor in Baltimore, MD, call Griffith Heating & Air for energy efficient ideas for your home. We offer products and services that can reduce your home’s energy bills and put more money in your pocket each month.
We are licensed by the state of Maryland as an HVAC contractor providing heating and cooling repairs to homes and businesses in the Baltimore, MD and surrounding areas. As a factory authorized dealer of many major brands, we carry a large inventory of products and parts that can help keep your heating and cooling system running at its best.
Most HVAC contractors agree that the best way to maintain the efficiency of your home’s heating and cooling system is to have it tuned-up twice a year. Before the cold weather arrives, you should have your heater serviced in the fall, and every spring you should have your air conditioner serviced.
When you have your system serviced, our highly trained service technician will perform a complete inspection of your system. He will identify parts that are beginning to wear out and recommend replacement before they cause your system to run inefficiently. This service also includes the cleaning and lubricating of all moving parts to reduce friction that will reduce your system’s efficiency. Be sure to check your air filter month and clean or replace as needed. This will help increase your system’s energy efficiency by maintaining proper airflow.
Another way to increase your home’s energy efficiency is to replace your heating and cooling system with a new unit. If your current system is over 15 years old, you could save up to 50 percent of your heating and cooling costs when you upgrade to one of the energy efficient models we offer. When you decide to upgrade your system, we will come out and evaluate your home to make sure you buy the right-sized system to efficiently heat and cool your home.
We also recommend having your home’s ductwork inspected. Any HVAC contractor will tell you that you could have the most energy efficient furnace or air conditioner installed in your home, but if your ductwork is in need of repair, you are just wasting energy dollars. Tears or loose connections in your ductwork will allow your heated or cooled air to leak out and reduce the amount that is sent to your registers.
Another product that can help increase the energy efficiency of your heating and cooling system is a programmable thermostat. This will allow you to set various times during the day when you want your heat or air conditioning to run so that you are not heating or cooling your home when no one is at home.
