Air conditioning can account for up to 1/2 of your home's summertime energy costs. To keep your system operating at its peak performance, you should have a yearly maintenance check up, including a refrigerant charge and airflow check.
You can save money, energy, and lower your impact on the environment by keeping your central heating system in proper working order. The first place to start is your furnace itself. By following simple maintenance steps you could save 10% or more on your heating costs.
Cooling your home efficiently will help lower your energy costs. To improve efficiency and to keep equipment running properly, replace or clean your filter monthly, remove dirt and dust from outside coils, and keep registers clean and unobstructed by furniture and curtains.
