When reviewing your bills each month, you may be dismayed to see energy usage and costs steadily increasing over time when you should pay less to stay comfortable. Affordable Service Plumbing and Heating can sympathize. We are always looking for ways to make our homes energy efficient and we appreciate it when customers share this goal. Families interested in reducing their carbon footprint need to know that increased utility bills can sometimes be an indicator that the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system in their home has grown dirty and simply requires cleaning.
Going Green and Reducing Your Family’s Carbon Footprint
About 50% of the energy used in your house goes toward air conditioning and heating, according to the government’s Energy Star program. To keep your HVAC system running as efficiently as possible, Affordable Service Plumbing and Heating recommends that you change your air filter according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
In addition, you should arrange for a technician to inspect, maintain and clean your HVAC equipment every year. A dirty system has to work harder, resulting in higher bills as well as the potential for the equipment breaking down because of overuse.
