Nearly half of your monthly utility costs go toward heating and cooling your home. For a cost-conscious customer, that thought is maddening, but luckily, there are steps you can take to decrease your monthly utility bills. One step would be to install an energy-efficient HVAC system in your Pittsburgh, PA, home. Read on to learn how an energy-efficient AC can help you beat the heat.
While temperatures soar outside, the amount of airflow in your home controls your comfort levels. Not only does a highly functioning, energy-efficient AC system quickly provide the comfort that you’re looking for, it allows your HVAC system to not run for such long periods of time, which decreases your monthly utility bill.
An HVAC system that doesn’t run for long periods of time also cuts down on the amount of impurities that get into your home. Having an energy-efficient system improves your budget, your system’s functionality and your interior air quality.
Improved Tech Options
An energy-efficient HVAC system typically involves more than simply installing a unit that runs for shorter periods of time and fewer cycles each day. You can also opt for a smart thermostat, which will increase the energy efficiency of your home.
Smart thermostats allow you to control your home’s interior temperature from your phone or mobile device. This means you can increase the temperature of your home when you’re away and let it become more comfortable when you and your family will be home.
Longer Operating Life
While new HVAC systems come with warranties, there are still repair costs associated with having your HVAC system professionally repaired if there’s an unfortunate issue. Due to the fact that they turn on and off less often, energy-efficient HVAC systems typically have a longer life expectancy and require repairs much less frequently.
If you’re looking for a way to improve your HVAC system’s performance while saving on your monthly utility bills, contact Woodruff and Smith Heating and Cooling, Inc. and ask about having one of our professional service technicians install an energy-efficient system for you.
