Caulk around windows, doors, and outlets.
Drafts in your home can act just like leaks in air ducts. They siphon cool air out of a structure, leading to discomfort and higher bills. Common places to find these leaks are around windows, doors, and electrical outlets. Often, running a thin line of caulk around these areas is enough to help. However, a professional can evaluate your home for areas needing extra work.
Upgrade your thermostat.
While it’s possible to buy a new thermostat from many big box stores, it’s a better idea to hire an HVAC service to install a new model. Why? First, you know it’s being done correctly. Even minor electrical work is beyond the skills of many homeowners today. More importantly, you’ll have an expert train you on the proper way to maximize its features.
More than 90 percent of homeowners ignore their thermostats’ advanced settings and use them exclusively for manual adjustments. When you consider how much recent advancement has been made in climate control, you know that speaking with a pro is a must. Now, not only can you use a cell phone to change or program your thermostat, you can use a predictable model that you never have to program. It bases its adjustments on your normal habits.
You can also set up alerts and reminders for a wide variety of incidents, including weather monitoring and out-of-the-ordinary energy use. Combined, these features result in optimal comfort and significant cost savings.
