How To Save Energy At Home

Conserving energy is becoming an important part of the lifestyle in America. Whether the Energy Efficient AC Unitreason is environmental consciousness or financial conservation, the truth is that everybody benefits from using the energy in their home wisely. However, many people are still not sure what they can do to conserve energy. At Bill Howe, we have a couple recommendations which will save energy while being easy on your wallet:

Keep Your HVAC System Well Maintained

Your San Diego HVAC system is one of the appliances in your home which is almost always using at least some energy. Between monitoring your home’s temperature via the thermostat and turning on to maintain a comfortable temperature, this system is almost always using energy.

Though there are energy efficient models on the market, the truth is that you can save a great deal of energy by simply making sure that whatever system is in your home is running at peak performance. Preventative maintenance of your San Diego HVAC system will maximize the efficiency of any system and is a good first step for conserving your San Diego HVAC system’s energy footprint.

Adjust Your Thermostat

Even the best maintained HVAC San Diego system is going to waste a lot of energy if the thermostat is set incorrectly. A good way to save some energy in this case is to adjust your thermostat according to the outside temperature. We recommend about 68 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter and about 72 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer. The best way to ensure proper use of the thermostat is to install an auto-programmable thermostat. There are many options to choose from including thermostats that you can program from your phone or computer, or even systems that learn your behavior and adjust automatically based on the system’s memory.

At Bill Howe, we care about the health of your home’s HVAC system and want to make sure that it runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Plus, if you are in need of a new system, we offer free estimates on new installations. To schedule an appointment with a specialist in HVAC, San Diego residents please contact us at 1-800-BILL-HOWE (1-800-245-5469).

What Andy B. via Lennox Pro says about us

We have been using Bill Howe Plumbing’s service for more than 25 years and have been pleasantly surprised at how consistently they perform an excellent service call. We use them for our home and our rental properties, and their dispatchers and technicians have always been the best at problem solving; our tenants have told us how great the service is as well. When we needed air conditioning service, naturally we called Bill Howe first. There’s no reason to call anyone else. I know the job will be done right the first time, with fair pricing and professional service.
