Make that your insulation is adequate
If your home isn’t adequately insulated, your power bills will be greater than they should be, regardless of how wonderful your HVAC system is, how efficient your boiler is, or whether you have solar energy or not.
Poor insulation will not only raise your utility bills, but it will also make your home uncomfortable. Do you want to be able to sweat in one room while being ice cold in another? If not, check to see if you have adequate insulation throughout your home.
It’s possible that you have a problem with your ductwork
According to experts, if ductwork isn’t up to code, up to one-third of the air conditioned air that passes through it is lost. Have your ductwork checked if you don’t want your conditioned air to leave your system before it has a chance to reach your vents and chill your home.
You’re making use of an out-of-date thermostat
You may be dealing with an inaccurate thermostat if you have an old manual thermostat with a slider. Even a few degrees off can result in significant increases in utility expenditures. Simply switching to a more modern choice can significantly improve the efficiency of your HVAC system. A conventional digital thermostat or a more sophisticated WIFI or smart thermostat can be installed.
You’re not getting the most out of your appliances
Do you have any appliances that are Energy Star certified? If you do, you’re probably under the impression that this is sufficient for them to function effectively. The truth is that no matter how efficient the systems are, they are only as efficient as you make them. If you don’t keep your thermostat at the appropriate temperature, no matter how effective your air conditioner is, you’re wasting electricity. You’re wasting electricity if you use your washer and dryer for a single outfit instead of waiting for a full load.
You’re using an old water heater
Many consumers do not believe that water heaters have a significant impact on their overall utility expenditures. We at The Stanley Louis Company would prefer that a client’s water heater did not account for a significant portion of their utility costs, but this is only true for those who have updated systems and who have regular maintenance to ensure that their systems are operating properly. Contact us at 800-217-6527 to learn more about how the correct water heater can help you save money on utilities.
