Heating and Cooling System Maintenance Reduces Energy Bills – Chesapeake, VA

Darren Kincaid - Tuesday, November 08, 2016

It is true, Virginia has felt a bit more like fall than winter lately, but heating and cooling experts suggest getting HVAC systems checked now before the winter weather really hits. This will keep unwanted surprises and potential problems at bay. It will also save you in home heating costs.

Preventive maintenance should really be done once in spring and once in the fall. If there is an issue with you heating and cooling equipment, the problem can be fixed before the extreme weather hits. But now is still a good time for preventative maintenance or a tune up if you haven’t gotten your HVAC system checked yet.

A good way to cut home energy costs this winter and to save energy is to pick one temperature for when you are home and one temperature for when you are not home and program your thermostat.

But don’t set your temperature too low at night, or when you are at work, because then it takes far too long to heat back up, using lots of energy.

We often suggest just setting your thermostat at 68 degrees around the clock. Every degree above 68 causes a 4% increase in the heating costs on your electric bill. And, for every degree you lower your thermostat, you save an average of 3% to 5% on your bill.

Checking the heating system monthly and cleaning or changing filters regularly is also important. Using a dirty filter can increase thermostat operating costs significantly and can also reduce efficiency.

Heating your home is the single biggest energy cost in the winter. Pay attention to your heating and cooling system in Chesapeake, VA, contact Central Plumbing and Heating.
