A Homeowner's Guide to HVAC Systems

Last updated 5 years ago

A heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system can keep your home comfortable and safe, but it can also take a big bite out of your budget if it isn’t operating efficiently. In fact, heating and cooling represents about 56% of energy use in the average home. You can reduce your HVAC costs by upgrading your system to make it more energy efficient. Routine maintenance performed by a qualified HVAC contractor will also result in energy use savings.

This video explains how a few simple modifications to your home can result in substantial savings. Start by setting your thermostat lower in the winter and higher in the summer. Clean the evaporator coil and outdoor condenser coils every year, and avoid obstructing the area around the outdoor unit. Also consider the energy efficiency ratings for possible replacement units. Watch this video to learn all about optimal ratings.
