Simple Ways to Save on Energy Costs This Fall

The warm days and cool nights of fall in Galveston, Texas, make heating and air conditioning necessary at different times. Fortunately, it’s easy to make an HVAC system more efficient. You can save on energy costs with simple changes like installing a programmable thermostat, adding a ventilator, and maintaining your HVAC system.

Installing a Programmable Thermostat

Most programmable thermostats can change between air conditioning and heating automatically, so keeping your home comfortable in fall is easier. You can set a programmable thermostat to raise or lower the temperature to save energy while you and your family are at work, on vacation, or asleep. Many programmable thermostats can communicate with your computer, smartphone, or tablet, so you can change your home’s temperature from anywhere. Some programmable thermostats even notify you when to change your air filter.

Adding a Ventilator

Heating and air conditioning can’t bring fresh air into your home, but opening windows can force your HVAC system to work harder, shortening its life and increasing your utility bills. Instead of opening windows, use an energy recovery ventilator to refresh air to your home. Carrier’s energy recovery ventilator is easy to install and it can improve your indoor air quality all year. It also transfers heat to or from the outgoing stale air to conserve energy.

Maintaining Your HVAC System

Have your heater inspected by a professional before you start using it in fall. That way, you can avoid problems that waste energy. You should also change your air filter once per month to keep your indoor air quality high and lower utility bills. A clean filter increases airflow and helps get rid of warm or cold areas.
