Heating and cooling your home uses more energy and drains more energy dollars than any other system in your home. No matter what kind of heating, ventilation and air conditioning system you have in your house, you can save money and increase comfort by properly maintaining and upgrading your equipment.

An energy-efficient furnace or air conditioner alone will not have as great of an impact as combining proper equipment and regularly-scheduled maintenance with appropriate insulation, weatherization and thermostat settings. Understanding operating costs of your heating and cooling appliances can save you hundreds of dollars on your energy bills each year.

Air Condition Only as Needed

  • Limit use of kitchen, bath, and other ventilating fans. Turn them off if they are no longer needed.
  • Keep draperies and shades open on south-facing windows during the heating season to allow in the sunlight. Close them at night to reduce the chill from cold windows.

  • If you use electricity to heat your home, consider installing an energy-efficient heat pump system. Heat pumps can provide up to three times more heating than the equivalent amount of electric energy they consume.
  • Caulk and weather strip all cracks and openings to the outdoors.
    Switch to cooler, energy-efficient fluorescent bulbs, which use about 66% less energy than standard bulbs.
