I have been trying to find a way to keep our home cooler during the Summer months and warmer during the Wintertide months for an entire year now. I was tired of paying high utility costs every month, which is why I decided to challenge myself and find a way to decrease our utility costs. The first thing I did was hire an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C professional before each seasonal shift in temperature. The Heating, Ventilation, and A/C professional was trained to examine our Heating, Ventilation, and A/C plan and find any troubles that could be causing our utility costs to rise. He replaced our air filter and examined all the intricate parts. The Heating, Ventilation, and A/C professional didn’t save me much money because I had to pay him, however he did supply me some reassurance and tips. He commanded that I replace our air filter biweekly instead of bibi-weekly. A fresh air filter would keep our furnace or air conditioner running effortlessly and efficiently. He also commanded that I scrub the outside condenser unit. If I scrubbed the fan and cleared all the leaves away from the base, it would also keep our Heating, Ventilation, and A/C plan running efficiently. Lastly, I went around and sealed all the doors and windows. The home is older, so a lot of the air was escaping through the cracks, causing our heat and air to run harder. With these swings, I’ve been able to save a superb amount of money on our biweekly utility costs over time. I only wish I would have started sooner.
