3 Simple Ways to Be More Energy Efficient

Homeowners often ask about ways they can be more energy efficient. That’s why we’ve put together a list of our top three favorite easy ways to cut down on home energy use. Take a look at what the professionals here at Patterson Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. recommend for staying energy efficient throughout Georgia’s four seasons:

1. Seal Windows

Drafty windows allow air from the outside to seep into your home and cause mischief for your thermostat. The draftier your windows, the harder your HVAC system has to work to keep the inside temperature constant.

Sealing your windows or even adding weather stripping to the frames will help prevent air from leaking in. Sealing is an easy and affordable way to improve your home’s energy efficiency and cut down on your utility bills.

2. Programmable Thermostat

A programmable thermostat gives you total control over the temperature of your home, even when you’re not at home. Most homeowners are gone during working hours, so you can set your thermostat not to work quite so hard when you’re out. Even lowering your thermostat by just a couple of degrees each day will significantly cut down on your energy usage and bills.

3. Routine Maintenance

Over time, your HVAC system will begin to show signs of wear and tear that decreases its energy efficiency. The less efficient your heating and cooling system, the harder it has to work to reach your desired temperature.

Fortunately, lots of these little nattering issues can be cleared up with routine maintenance. Our expert technicians know exactly how to inspect and fix up your machines so that they’re at optimum performance year-round.
