Home and commercial building owners have all types of appliances and equipment to maintain. And equipment that is well maintained is always going to perform better. With that said, the team here at South Nashville Heating and Cooling wants to take this time to explain why a dirty, outdated, and poorly running heating system can cause you to lose money and energy efficiency. Our team is equipped to help you save energy and money this winter with these important facts.
PERFORM PROPER MAINTENANCE TO YOUR HEATING SYSTEM
Here at South Nashville Heating and Cooling, we offer a wide range of maintenance and service agreements to all our valued clients. We cannot emphasize enough how important it is to perform routine preventative maintenance and an inspection to your heating system regularly. Our team of specialists offers and installs energy-efficient cooling, heating, and ductless systems for both residential and commercial properties. Energy efficient systems not only reduce energy costs, but provide warmth, comfort, and safety to your home and family throughout the brisk winter months. Our team of specialists is on hand to help you determine the best heating and energy saving options for your home and pocketbook this winter.
We have some simple but very important tips we can offer you to help save energy and money in your home throughout the winter season. To begin with, if you spend a good deal of time away from home in the winter months, whether you are working daily or traveling, your thermostat will need adjusting. It is important that you adjust the thermostat in your home for those hours that you are away and even for those hours that you are sleeping. In the cold weather months, we recommend you adjust your thermostat settings to 55 degrees when you are traveling, and to 63 degrees when you are sleeping or away from home each day at work. This will present with some noticeable savings once you get in the habit of using these thermostat settings in the winter months.
Next, if your utility bill each month is on the high side, you may want to invest in a home energy audit and inspection. This will help determine changes you can make in your home to add to its energy efficiency. Some of the typical changes that homeowners make include:
- Adding insulation to the living space
- Sealing any leaks or holes in the foundation or in plumbing pipes
- Installing specialized door kits to help eliminate, or at least minimize, drafts
- Installing LED light bulbs
- Utilizing power strips
- Installing low-flow shower heads
- Investing in a programmable thermostat
- Installing faucet aerators
Each of these upgrades or changes can contribute greatly to the energy efficiency in your home and can help you save energy and money all winter long. Here at South Nashville Heating and Cooling, our team of highly skilled technicians is on hand to assist with any of these necessary changes and stands ready to answer any questions you may have about energy efficiency options or any other HVAC concerns you may have.
