HVAC Cost Savings Ideas
5 Simple ways to save money and lower the negative impact on the environment
1. Maintain your equipment
This is the most basic and easiest way to reduce your air comfort costs. Investing time to change air filters on a regular basis, clean your condensing unit and be quick to call an HVAC professional anytime you notice unusual performance or noise from any component of your air conditioner or heating system. Many aspects of HVAC systems maintenance, such as cleaning evaporator coils, should be performed by a licensed mechanical contractor. TeleTemp Mechanical Corp. offers HVAC maintenance services and is licensed and insured.
2. Upgrade to high-efficiency equipment
If your equipment is over 10 years old it is probably extremely energy inefficient compared to modern equipment designs. Manufacturers often offer equipment rebates and in some cases your system upgrade may qualify you for tax credits. By replacing your HVAC system you will see substantial drops in your utility bills. An average consumer may see a savings of thousands of dollars over a few short years. TeleTemp Mechanical Corp. offers HVAC replacement upgrades.
3. Upgrade from window ACs to ductless mini-split air conditioners
While a ductless mini-split system is cheaper and easier to install than whole-home central air it still requires a qualified technician and a small investment. The system incorporates an outdoor condenser component with smaller wall-mounted cooling units called zones that are installed where you need them most. Placement of these cooling zones can be on an exterior or interior wall with no window required. Some systems have one to two room units that can be networked, while others may have more. And, some systems include heating as well as cooling, so they are more versatile than a simple window air conditioner. TeleTemp Mechanical Corp.offers ductless mini-split AC installations, service and maintenance.
4. Use programmable or Wi-Fi thermostats
Upgrading to a programmable thermostat allows you to have near effortless control over your HVAC system. For, example, a programmable thermostat can be set to run less often during your workday and start running shortly before you arrive home so that you arrive to a comfortable home and eliminated your unit running all day while you are gone. Wi-Fi Thermostats allow users to easily adjust the temperature remotely. Like a connected thermostat they are connected to the Internet, they allow users to adjust heating/cooling settings from other internet-connected devices, such as smart phones. A small investment can quickly bring you a substantial return on investment. TeleTemp Mechanical Corp. provides thermostat installations and replacements.
5. Get a zoned system
A zoned system has been designed to switch the delivery of conditioned air (cooled or heated air) to different parts of your home at different times of the day. For example, during the day conditioned air is delivered to living spaces, while at night the conditioned air is delivered to sleeping areas. If you already have invested in high efficiency equipment, and utilize zoned delivery, your air comfort system will be incredibly kind to your utility bills. TeleTemp Mechanical Corp. offers HVAC replacement and upgrade services.
