As a Mokena homeowner, have you given any recent thought to your energy costs? When energy prices are lower, there is a tendancy to boost our use without even realizing it. Winter is still with us in the chilly north, so instead of shortchanging yourself, here are some tips to lower your bills starting today.
Using the Wrong Air Filter
When was the last time you changed the air filter in your home? Having the right air filter, and properly changing it when it is needed, is an essential part of keeping your home energy efficient. Talk to an HVAC professional about which air filter will clean the air in your home while effectively helping you lower energy costs.
Improper Thermostat Use
Are you using your thermostat properly? Investing in a programmable thermostat is the first step to decrease energy use by only running the heat or air when you are home. Then, make sure that you have the thermostat in a central area of your home, away from direct sunlight. This will help it signal the HVAC system as effectively as possible.
Do you have things in front of your air vents? Even if they are return air vents, which may not seem like they do much, you are making your HVAC system work harder. Removing the obstructions in front of your vents will help decrease energy use by allowing your HVAC system to run as efficiently as possible.
