Energy Saving Habits (HVAC Maintenance Works!)

April 28, 2023 | Blog

Summer is around the corner and it’s important to create energy-saving habits that’ll be easier on your wallet and home! Are you a homeowner but you’re unsure on how to manage your air usage that fits your family’s lifestyle? If so, Channell Heating & Cooling is here for you! We have tips on how to improve your energy usage inside of your home. We believe that our customers deserve top-quality Hazlehurst HVAC maintenance. Read more down below on ways you can make your home more energy-efficient!

What’s An HVAC Tune-Up?

It’s recommended to schedule maintenance for your heating and cooling unit at least twice a year before any big weather change. Just like all other appliances, HVAC units have an average lifespan and by providing regular tune-ups, you can extend this and avoid your system breaking down. Also, you can lower your utility bills by ensuring your system is running at peak efficiency.

Routines That’ll Conserve Your Home’s Energy

When it comes to achieving an energy-efficient HVAC system, the options can feel overwhelming. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with a list of ways to help you save money and energy.

Use Your Blinds

Closing your shades is a great way to save energy on cooling costs. Believe it or not, windows without blinds are responsible for over 85% of heat gain! All that added heat can make your HVAC work harder to keep your home cool. We suggest closing your blinds during the heat of the day to stay more comfortable indoors.

Seal Your Home

It’s important to go through your home and look out for any cracks in your walls or gaps that could bring in unwanted outside air. Our team recommends sealing door frames, windows and ductwork to help you save big on your HVAC costs.

Get Regular HVAC Maintenance

Getting your AC and heater maintained twice a year can help you achieve lower energy bills and year-round comfort. Our technicians at Channell Heating & Cooling are experts when it comes to inspecting your unit for any leaks or issues. We strive to save you money in the long run by providing timely repairs before they result in a costly system breakdown.

Examine Your Windows

If you notice your energy bill rising, it could be caused by your windows. The last thing you want is heat coming into your windows and driving up your utility costs. Inspect your windows for any leaks or gaps in the sills. If you see any, we recommend that you get your windows sealed or replaced.

Good Habits To Help Save Energy

Want to know more ways you can contribute to your air quality and energy usage? Read below for some additional helpful homeowner habits:

Very Thankful for Their Service

They installed our old system and took care if all maintenance since 1995. This year it finally needed replacing. They installed a quality Trane system and it’s been running efficiently ever since. Very thankful for their service.
