It’s important to keep your Helendale home energy costs under control. Some changes can save you as much as $180 per year. The more you save, the more you can use later for nights out, vacations away, and other fun activities.

Here are just a few ways you can save money on home energy bills:

Upgrade to a Newer, Efficient System

An older unit can wreak havoc on your bank account. You can end up spending a ridiculous amount of money on frequent HVAC repairs and rising utility bills. To avoid wasting energy and money, purchase an energy-efficient HVAC system that has a high SEER rating. Consider Energy Star rated models as well to reap the rewards of having an energy-efficient system.

Change Your Air Filters Every 1-3 Months

Your HVAC system’s air filter exists to trap dirt and debris, ensuring it doesn’t build up inside and affect the performance of your system. Unfortunately, an HVAC unit with an extremely dirty air filter has to work harder to do the same job, raising your energy costs. Inspect your filter every 1-3 months. If the filter look dirtier than it should, then replace it immediately.

Have Your HVAC Unit Checked Annually

In order to keep your HVAC unit running smoothly, it’s important to schedule maintenance at least once every year. This goes for both your heating and cooling systems, which you’ll want to have inspected prior to using them. Trust a licensed and trained HVAC repair specialist to perform this inspection when the time comes.
