Energy Savings by Treat’s Heating & Cooling
Heating and cooling your home uses more energy and costs more money than any other system in your home, typically making up about 48 percent of your utility bill. Regardless of what kind of system you have in your home, you can save money and increase comfort by properly maintaining and upgrading your equipment.
An energy efficient furnace alone will not have as great of an impact on your energy bills as using the whole house approach. By combining high efficiency equipment and upgrades with recommended insulation, air sealing, and thermostat settings, you can save about 30 percent on your energy bill while reducing environmental emissions.
Set your programmable thermostat as high as you can (without being uncomfortable) in the summer and then raise or lower the set point when you are sleeping or away from home.
Clean or replace filters on your air conditioner every three months, but check them monthly and change if necessary.
Make sure all registers are not blocked by furniture or objects that make the air difficult to filter air into the home.
Keep drapes and blinds closed during the day to block the suns heat.
In the evening when it cools off, open windows and use fans to circulate the cool air into the home instead of air conditioning.
Most importantly, make sure you call a professional at Treat’s Heating & Cooling 360.825.0800 for an annual maintenance and refrigerant check on your air conditioner. We serve many satisfied clients and have been in business for over 40 years!
