Maximize Energy Efficiency With These 3 Tips

October 10, 2022 | Blog

Every family likes to save money on their utility bills. Here at Tim’s Southern Air Heating and Cooling, we’re always happy to educate our clients on ways to protect their wallets. Prioritizing energy efficiency usually translates to lower utility payments, which is why we encourage our customers to pay attention to their HVAC systems, furnaces and heat pumps. Our outstanding Lafayette air conditioning professionals are always prepared to offer their expertise, whether that be through AC maintenance, air conditioner installation, AC repairs or other HVAC services.

Browse our website for info about air conditioning replacements, or read on to learn about our top 3 tips when it comes to creating an energy-efficient household.

Tip 1: Find an HVAC that Fits Your Home

When it comes to an efficient AC unit, correct sizing for your home is essential.

Your HVAC uses a significant amount of energy to cool your space, especially during the warmer months of the year. If your system is too small for the size of your household, you may notice some components burning out more quickly due to overuse. On the other hand, if your HVAC is too big, you will probably run into temperature control issues that waste energy and increase your utility costs. At Tim’s Southern Air, we are always available to check on the sizing of your AC system and make sure it’s a perfect fit for you and your family’s needs.

Tip 2: Keep Your System in Good Condition

Ensuring that your device is functioning smoothly is an easy way to cut back on energy usage. Some of the simplest ways to improve energy efficiency in your home are:

  • Checking your ducts for dust and dander buildup
  • Replacing old HVAC parts, like the condenser fan or compressor
  • Changing your filters regularly
  • Checking your home’s insulation for places air could be escaping
  • Scheduling consistent maintenance checks
  • Installing smart technology to regulate temperatures while you’re away

Alternatively, if your air conditioning system is ancient, it may be best to replace it entirely. We know that there are many different paths one can take when it comes to energy-efficient air conditioning, but you can rest assured that Tim’s Southern Air has got your back and will always lead you toward the best option.

Tip 3: Get a Professional’s Perspective!

Asking a professional for ideas on reducing energy usage is always a quick and easy way to preserve your bank account! From strategically installing fans to generate more airflow throughout your home to trying out a heat pump, there are always ways to cut utility costs!
