Homeownership is a fantastic personal and financial investment! Owning a home can set you up for financial success for years to come and help you establish equity, but unforeseen expenses can make the cost of owning a home go up and up! During National Homeownership Month, take time to reflect on what you can do to keep your home’s HVAC utilities running at peak performance and help you limit costs associated with owning a home.
Are You Getting Your HVAC Unit Serviced Every Year?
It is recommended that your HVAC system be tuned up by a professional once or even twice a year depending on use. This can help extend the life of your unit by preparing it for the warm summer months or colder winter temperatures. Talk to a member of our team about scheduling regular tune-ups for your HVAC system.
Upgrade To the Most Efficient Model
The initial cost of a new HVAC unit may have a hefty price tag to begin with, but over time it will save you money. By switching to the most efficient model of an HVAC unit, you can use less energy to produce the same amount of heat or air conditioning which can save you money.
Explore Energy Saving Options
Turning your air conditioning or heat up or down by a couple of degrees can end up saving you quite a bit of money on your monthly electric bill and extend the life of your HVAC unit. While some are hesitant to explore this option because they don’t want to sacrifice comfort, there are things around your home to make this change less drastic. Keep your blinds or curtains drawn during the hottest or coldest hours of the day. This will prevent unintentional heating and cooling of the air in your home. You can also add ceiling or box fans to your space to help air circulate better throughout your home.
Keep your home’s utilities performing at top capacity during National Homeownership Month. These small changes to your behaviors with your HVAC unit can extend the life of the system and save you money in the long run!
