Brace Your‘Elf’ for Rising Energy Costs

‘Yule’ Want to Check Out These Energy-Saving Tips!

What’s the adult equivalent to receiving coal in your stocking? High energy bills! Unfortunately, with electricity costs on the rise, higher-than-normal heating costs will be common for homeowners across the Tampa Bay area and beyond this season.

Yes, we know. This isn’t the news you were hoping to hear—particularly during the holiday months when there tends to be less wiggle room in your budget. Thankfully, our energy efficiency pros are stepping in to help!

From installing the Clean Air Defense System AirRanger so you can enjoy healthier, cleaner air inside of your home to providing swift, reliable HVAC, plumbing and electrical repairs, there’s no denying we truly care about our customers, their homes and their budgets. That’s why we’re giving you peace of mind by sharing our expert advice!

Here are three simple energy-saving tips that will have you unwrapping lower energy bills this holiday season—and for months to come.

1. Make Sure Your System Is Functioning at Its Best!

According to Energy Star, heating and cooling your home accounts for roughly 43% of your total energy consumption. But you can help keep your HVAC system’s energy use to a minimum by taking care of it.

The key is efficiency. When your system has to work overtime, it can take years off of its lifespan, increase the need for repairs and send your energy costs through the roof. You should:

  • Replace or clean your system’s air filter. When your furnace or air conditioner’s air filter is dirty or clogged, your unit is forced to work overtime to meet your comfort demands. Avoid this energy waste by cleaning or replacing your air filter on a regular basis. We recommend you do this at least three times a year.
  • Stop ignoring problems. From a faulty part to other damage, continuing to operate your heating or cooling system when there’s a problem is the fast track to unnecessarily high energy bills.
  • Schedule an annual tune-up. Our in-depth system inspections prevent faulty parts or the need for repairs from going undetected. They also allow our techs to get your system in tip-top shape by thoroughly cleaning it and performing any other necessary maintenance.

2. Reverse Your Ceiling Fan for ‘Tree’mendous Comfort & Savings

Warm air rises. Switching your ceiling fan so that its blades operate clockwise will push the warm air that’s heading toward your ceiling back into your living space. You’ll be amazed at how quickly your room heats up!

3. Trim a Few Degrees Off of Your Thermostat

You can save up to 10% a year on your energy bills by turning your thermostat down a few degrees—even if it’s just while you’re sleeping, at work or out and about. Or you can upgrade to a smart thermostat and let this smart device do the work for you.
