With temperatures rising, our energy bills may be making its way up as well. Finding new ways to save energy becomes more important during extreme weather conditions.
PLANTING THE SEED OF SAVINGS
Have you ever considered landscaping for energy savings? Most of us use landscaping for aesthetics only. However, proper planting can make a difference on your energy costs too. While adding attraction to your home, you can lower the price of heating and cooling.
Properly placed trees and shrubs help shade your home in the summer and block wind during the winter months. This means that your HVAC system gets a little bit of a break and so does your wallet.
According to TogetherWeSave.com, “Proper placement of trees and shrubs can help you save up to 10-percent on your energy bill.”
The Big Deal About Air Filters
By: Krysten C.
Have you noticed the radio commercials and advertisements telling you to change your air conditioner filter? With the changing of seasons, it’s been well enough time for you to change the air conditioner filter in your home. What’s the big deal? – you ask. Here are some reasons that make changing your air filter a big deal.
AIR CONDITIONING EFFECIENCY
For starters, resources show that the top cause for HVAC system malfunction is dirty filters. When your air filter is dirty, that also means that your ducts are dirty, which then means that the air distributed throughout your house is dirty. Airflow is also reduced and air has to find other routes (unsealed or open areas) to slip through. Ultimately, costly repairs will be needed.
Basically, by deciding to not replace your air filter you’ve decided to put one of the biggest home investments at risk for failure. Putting in the money twice a year for a new air filter will save you the huge cost of fixing or completely replacing your HVAC unit or entire system.
