How to Optimize Your Heating and Air Conditioning in Granite Bay for BIG Savings

Heating and air conditioning in Granite Bay can be expensive.

Hot summers and chilly winters give Granite Bay HVAC systems a workout and often make family budgets sweat. Nice to know then that there are a few things you can do to optimize your HVAC system right now and lower your utility costs every month.

These simple steps will show you how to optimize your heating and air conditioning in Granite Bay for big savings.

Step 1: Change your air filters.

Any discussion about how to optimize your heating and air conditioning should begin with changing your air filters. Your heating and air conditioning system employs filters to keep dust, dirt and debris from damaging the moving parts. Check the filter every month and change them every month if you have the little one inch filters. Better yet, have qualified contractor upgrade to a 4 inch pleated filter that is rated to last 6 months or longer.

Not only will this allow your HVAC to run more efficiently, saving you money in monthly utility costs, it will maintain the system so you don’t end up spending a fortune on repair or replacement fees.

Step 2: Check your ductwork for leaks.

Leaky ductwork makes it impossible for your HVAC system to run efficiently and that means keeping your home’s climate comfortable is costing you more than it should. Check your ductwork for leaks and seal the ones you find with caulking. Know this: most leaks are hidden on your ducts in hard to see and harder to reach places. If you want to ensure your ductwork is sealed properly it’s best to have this done professionally.

Step 3: Vacuum your ducts and outdoor air conditioning unit.

As dust and dirt builds up in your ductwork and on the surface of your outdoor unit the unit’s efficiency suffers because it has to work harder to draw in air. Worse still, this dust and dirt is sucked into the unit and coats its moving parts, which can cause the unit to breakdown altogether if left unchecked. Every month, grab a shop vacuum and clean inside the ducts that you can reach. This will improve the air quality of your home and lower your utility costs.

Step 4: Invest in a programmable thermostat.

You probably know that lowering your thermostat setting for when you’ll be asleep or away from home is an easy way to save money on heating and cooling bills. Problem is, with everything else from pets to partners to worry about it can be easy to forget this simple money-saving move.

The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that lowering your thermostat by 10 to 15 degree for eight hours can reduce your heating bill by 5% to 15% a year. With a programmable thermostat you’ve got a “set-it-and-forget-it” solution to high utility bills. Save money on utilities while sleeping and at work? Sounds good.
