Energy efficiency is the name of the game. Homeowners everywhere are trying save money this summer by making their HVAC systems and their homes as energy efficient as possible. But how? What can you do to ensure you are getting the most out of every dollar you spend on cooling this summer?
HVAC Maintenance Tips for Homeowners
Last week, we explained the importance of regularly changing your air filter. This week, we are going to focus on another aspect of energy efficiency: Sealing Your Home. As summer approaches, it will become more and more difficult to keep your home cool, but it doesn’t have to be that way. There are several quick steps you can take, as a homeowner, to ensure your home is as energy efficient as possible.
- Insulation: One of the easiest ways to improve the energy efficiency of your home is to make sure it is properly insulated. The right amount of insulation can go a long way to make your home much more energy efficient and comfortable.
- Seal Doors and Windows: Drafts can cost you money. This is why it is so important to seal your windows and doors.
- Seal Recessed Lighting: When recessed lighting is installed, many times there are gaps in the attic space, gaps with insufficient insulation. Because of this, recessed lights are often a source of air leaks. By sealing the cracks around recessed lights, you can help make your home that much more energy efficient.
