Energy Efficiency Tips

Are you looking for ways to maximize the energy efficiency of your home? The cold temperatures during winter and high temperatures during summer cause us to put our HVAC systems to good use, resulting in higher energy bills. Kennon Heating & Air Conditioning offers some helpful tips to get the most energy efficiency out of your systems!

How to get the most out of your HVAC systems:

  • Thermostat Settings: Set your thermostat to 78 degrees in the summer and 68 degrees in the winter. Following these temperature guidelines will save wear and tear on your system AND you will see a 3-4 % decrease in energy use= saving money!
  • Air Filters: You can also maintain efficiency by changing your filters at lest once every three months, have your systems professionally serviced, use a programmable thermostat to set your home temperature a few degrees warmer during the day when no one is home and begin to cool just before you arrive home.
  • System Size: Your home will not stay sufficiently cool if your air conditioner is undersized. However, an over-sized system will turn on and off more than necessary, increasing your cost for unnecessary energy use.

Consider Installing a High-Efficiency HVAC System

The Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Network, U.S. Department of Energy states that heating and cooling can account for more than half of your home’s total utility bill. Consider a high-efficiency system. High-efficiency systems are identified by the Energy Guide label [yellow-and-black sticker] found on the equipment.

The US national average for fuel and electricity consumption savings is 25% per year. Actual costs and savings will vary depending on weather conditions, usage, location and local utility rates. This information is intended as an example for comparison purposes only.
