Contrary to popular belief, personal comfort and energy efficiency are not mutually exclusive. With summertime quickly approaching in Townsend, MT, it’s easy to assume that you won’t be able to fully enjoy your home’s air conditioning without running up your monthly utility bills. However, there are several options that you should consider when looking for a way to boost your home’s energy efficiency.
1. Home Zoning
Our line of ductless mini-splits allows you to employ zoning in your home’s HVAC system. These units heat or cool the room where you install them, allowing you to control the temperature in certain zones without wasting electricity controlling the temperature in unused spaces. Zoning your home’s heating and cooling makes your home more energy-efficient and saves money on wasted electricity.
2. Schedule Regular HVAC Maintenance
Having your HVAC system regularly maintained by a professionally licensed HVAC service technician keeps the entire system working exactly the way it’s designed. Upon manufacturing, your HVAC system receives an energy efficiency rating. In order to make sure that the system is constantly operating at its full efficiency potential, you should make regular maintenance part of your yearly plan.
3. Properly Position Your Thermostat
As important as it is to have a properly working thermostat, it’s equally important to position it properly. If your thermostat is in direct sunlight, near a vent, or near a light in your home, the temperature readings won’t be accurate. Without accurate temperature readings, your HVAC system won’t know when to run, decreasing your home’s efficiency.
It’s also worth noting that quickly addressing any issues with your HVAC system is an important part of maximizing your efficiency. Whether you need system repair or a routine maintenance visit, we have the solutions to your energy efficiency needs.
