How can you improve your energy efficiency?
Energy efficiency allows you to save money while maintaining comfort. It’s not a code word for “suffer in silence,” but simply a way to use less energy. You can do so while staying comfortable and keeping the same convenient services you’ve had in the past. No sacrifice needed.
Here are three ways to drastically improve the efficiency of your home:
- Schedule Preventive HVAC Maintenance. Homeowners in Columbia, SC can tap into programs like the Cool Zone. For a reasonable yearly fee, you get two maintenance visits each year. You may do your own maintenance, but hiring a pro provides a few extra. For instance, by ensuring your use of a high-quality filter, a professional immediately increases your energy efficiency. You’ll also get first dibs on any needed repairs, discounts, and other benefits of being a loyal customer of Carolina Comfort, Inc.
- Go Tankless. Tankless water heaters are gaining popularity because the technology works really well. Would you like instant access to endless supplies of hot water? Rheem tankless water heaters also use less energy to heat the water. Presenting a savings while improving convenience? They’re the perfect fit for the modern home.
- Switch Thermostats. While any $40 thermostat will run your heating and cooling equipment reasonably well, a predictive or smart model has the ability to save you big bucks during the year. The Nest was first on the market, but soon followed by the Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat. It works well but looks too utilitarian for many clients. Enter the Honeywell Lyric. The round white device attaches simply to the wall and integrates with your HVAC system. It offers predictive services that adjust temperatures once it learns your normal habits, can be controlled via Android or iOS app, and it employs “geo-fencing” to determine when people have left your property. All these features result in higher efficiency rates. Plus, it’s pretty cool.
