Energy Efficiency In HVAC Systems

HVAC Tips To Reduce Your Energy Bill

There are various strategies and technologies that can improve the energy efficiency of HVAC systems.

Implementing these strategies not only lead to cost savings, but they reduce environmental impact by using less energy. 

Five Strategies And Technologies To Improve Energy Efficiency

There are many ways to increase the efficiency of a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system.

Here are a few methods to improve efficiency, increase savings, and reduce effects on the environment.

  1. Install ENERGY STAR equipment 
  2. Smart thermostats
  3. Change air filters regularly
  4. Annual HVAC maintenance
  5. Insulate heating and cooling ducts

Each of the strategies listed above can help improve HVAC system performance and efficiency.

When heating and cooling systems are running the way they should be, they consume less energy. The result: lower energy bills and less pollution on the environment.

Installing New Equipment Can Greatly Increase HVAC Efficiency

1. Install Energy Star Equipment

ENERGY STAR equipment is certified equipment known to cut energy bills by $140.

HVAC systems over 10 years old should always be assessed by a professional to see if it’s running efficiently and is in need of repairs or a total replacement. 

By installing energy efficient HVAC units, such as those that have earned the ENERGY STAR certification, can ensure performance and efficiency. 

Contact MyAirToday in Charlotte, NC to enquire about installing an energy efficient HVAC system.

2. Use Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats use the smart technology to control HVAC units right from a cell phone.

These thermostats are not only convenient, they can create a more energy efficient atmosphere.

Homes with smart thermostats can save around $100 a year.

3. Change Air Filters Regularly

Air filters should be changed regularly to promote system performance. 

Filters should be changed around every three months, but many need to be replaced more often depending on the season. 

Clean filters not only increase HVAC efficiency, they also prevent dust buildup within the system promoting longevity. 

4. Annual HVAC Maintenance

Annual HVAC maintenance can help increase system efficiency in two ways. 

First, it will include a system cleaning, riding the unit of any dust or particulate buildup. 

Second, annual tuneups can help find leaks or other minimal repairs that could lead to costly maintenance or even replacement.

5. Insulate Heating and Cooling Ducts

Leaky ducts are often the main reason for wasted energy. Heating and cooling ducts that are sealed and well-insulated ultimately improve HVAC system efficiency. 

Sealing any ducts that lead to areas of the building that are either heated or cooled can increase system performance and decrease energy consumption. 

Ducts can be sealed with duct sealant and wrapped in insulation to prevent them from overheating in the summer months or freezing during the winter.
