Many homeowners spend more than they should on energy costs. At Griffith Energy Services, we can help you to lower heating costs in winter and to spend less on air conditioning in summer. Here are just a few of the ways that you can save money on your HVAC without lowering the bar on indoor comfort.
Annual System Maintenance Keeps Energy Costs Low
The easiest way to reduce heating and cooling costs is to keep HVAC equipment in prime condition with annual maintenance. This not only saves on monthly utility bills, it also saves on HVAC repairs and system replacements. Furnaces, boilers, heat pumps and air conditioners all need annual service to operate efficiently. At Griffith Energy Services, we offer periodic discounts on preventive maintenance. Always check our Specials Page before scheduling service.
Save On Utility Bills With an In-House Energy Audit
Griffith Energy Services is a Home Energy Savings Program Contractor. Using a blower door and infrared technology, one of our experienced technicians can test your home for loss of heated or cooled air. Up to 30 percent of energy leakage occurs through gaps between windows or doors and the frame of your home. Heated and cooled air can also escape via cracks and leaks in duct work. Leaks can also develop next to a chimney or a flue. To learn more about how to identify and prevent energy leaks, contact us for a home energy audit.
Upgrade To a High-Efficiency Heating Or Cooling System
Air conditioners and furnaces get more efficient every year. If your air conditioner or furnace is over ten years old, needs frequent repairs, or just doesn’t work like it should, replacing it with a modern, energy-efficient unit can reduce cooling bills and lower heating costs enough to offset the price of installation. There are state, federal, and local programs that provide energy assistance rebates and discounts to those who purchase high-efficiency products, and we offer dealer discounts on energy-efficient HVAC upgrades; our Trane, Carrier, and Mitsubishi Electric products are among the best on the market.
Keep Your Air Filters Clean
Dirty air filters will tax your heating and cooling equipment. Most HVAC filters should be cleaned or replaced monthly. If you have pets, they may need replacement more often. Keeping air filters clean will keep energy costs low while helping your HVAC to function optimally.
Install A Programmable Thermostat
Adding a programmable thermostat to your home will provide worry-free and money-saving temperature adjustments when no one is home and while you’re asleep.
