PJ's Repair

At PJ’s Repair, we believe that saving money is very important and as the summer season arrives, we want to give you some easy ways to save HVAC costs and keep you cool at the same time.

Here Are Some Easy Ways to Save HVAC Costs:

  • Make sure that you don’t put heat sources near your thermostat, in doing so; you cause your air conditioner to run more. And that costs you money.
  • Try using CFL (Compact Fluorescent Light) bulbs. They create much less heat than regular light bulbs; every little bit helps.
  • You will want to turn your lights off when you don’t need to use them.
  • Hey, let’s not use your oven. That really makes things heat up! We recommend that you use your microwave, try the Crockpot or even a toaster oven. These are great to use when it gets hot outside as well as indoors.

I told you they were easy ways to save HVAC costs. Did you know that changing clean air filters for used ones on a monthly basis for central air, window and wall units save on HVAC costs? It helps the units to run more efficiently.

Other easy ways to save HVAC costs are setting the thermostat higher (at least on 80°) during the day; this could cut your household’s electric bill by over $150 a year, that’s some savings? You can caulk and use weather-stripping to plug up any drafty places in your home; those drafty places allow cooled air to escape through gaps around your windows and door frames; this makes your HVAC run harder to keep the house cooler which costs you more money.

In addition you can draw the curtains or close the blinds to block the sunlight, pay attention to the rooms that face the Sun during the heat of the day. Did you know that rooms get hotter when there are no shades or curtains? Can you start to see how these easy ways to save HVAC costs can help your wallet and HVAC system?
