Want to Improve Your HVAC Efficiency? Here Are a Few Tips

In our area of Wisconsin, it’s important to have an efficient HVAC system. In the hot, sticky summers and in the frigid winters, HVAC systems can keep us comfortable and safe. The bills can add up, though, so it makes sense that many are interested in improving the efficiency of their HVAC systems. Here are some tips about how you may be able to do that.

Use Modern, Programmable Thermostats

Thermostats tell heating and cooling systems when to turn on and off. Since many of us have set schedules and prefer different temperatures at various points of the day or night, it can be useful to have a programmable thermostat. With this device, you can make it cooler at night and warmer during the day, for example, or set your home to use less energy when you’re away. There are several “smart” thermostats available. These can be adjusted with a mobile device.

Keep the Air Flowing

This next tip may sound pretty simple. Keep items like furniture or curtains away from air vents. This way, your system won’t have to work as hard to push the air through. A more comprehensive approach to this idea is to have your ducts and vents cleaned. Over time, dust can build up, impeding air flow. Likewise, air filters can get clogged pretty easily. It’s smart to have your filter(s) replaced regularly. This could be something that an individual could do on his/her own, but of course, assistance is just a phone call away.

If you live in the Green Bay region and would like a professional to maintain your unit, we’re ready to help at Nicolet Heating & Cooling. In addition to inspecting the air filter and replacing it if necessary, we can look over other components to make sure everything is working properly.

Improve Your Insulation

Homes can lose a lot of energy through roofs, windows, and doors. Improving your insulation can go a long way in saving you money on utility bills. Older homes may benefit greatly from new insulation and new windows. Even if you have a newer place in Green Bay, you may want to have an energy audit conducted to see where you can enhance your insulation.

Upgrade Your System

In some circumstances, it may be best for a homeowner to replace an older unit with a newer one. Newer HVAC systems are generally held to higher standards, so they’ve been designed to be more efficient than their older counterparts. We realize that this requires an up-front investment, but it could be a wise move if your older unit is barely hanging in there. It may be using up so much energy to do the bare minimum.

Ways in which you can enhance your HVAC efficiency range from simple tasks to larger projects. At Nicolet Heating & Cooling, we can answer your questions and would be happy to work with you. Give us a call to schedule an appointment.
