5 Ways to Make a Change in Your Home for Better Efficiency and Comfort!

Are you ready to do something about your monthly cooling and heating costs? Are you tired of paying for a heating and cooling system that doesn’t seem to do the trick? It’s time to make a change! We’ve put together a list of a few changes you can make to your heating and cooling systems and to your home to lower your bills without sacrificing your comfort.

  • Change the way you use your thermostat. Do you keep your thermostat set to one constant temperature throughout the day and night? Studies show that lowering the temperature (in cold weather) by 10-15° for eight hours a day or raising it in the summer while you are away or asleep can actually reduce your energy bills by up to 15%. Replace outdated non-programmable thermostats, and ask your technician for more advice on how to use it.
  • Get a home energy audit. Do you feel like you pay far too much for your monthly energy bills? A home energy audit from an HVAC technician can help you to locate areas of the home with insufficient insulation or air leaks.
  • Seal and insulate your home. Have you noticed hot or cold areas of the home, drafty rooms, or insufficient temperatures? This could be due to leaky ductwork—a problem that actually occurs in the majority of buildings—as well as air leaks around doors or windows, or poor insulation around the ducts and throughout the home.
  • Replace your heating and air conditioning systems. Do you frequently deal with heating and air conditioning system repairs for a system that costs too much to run and takes too long to make your home comfortable? After about ten years or so, we recommend upgrading to a high-efficiency AC or heating system to see a major decrease of your bills.
  • Set a schedule to change your air filter. Are you worried about the performance of your air conditioning system or your heater? Change your filter each month! It’s one of the easiest things you can do to maintain any HVAC system, though we also recommend scheduling professional maintenance for each of your systems every year.

We’d love to help you make changes to your home comfort system—big or small—for your comfort and for greater energy efficiency. Call GSM Services for expert heating and cooling services or for a home energy audit from a company that’s been around since 1927.
