How to increase HVAC energy efficiency

Your HVAC systems represent a large energy expense. Some of that energy may be wasted if your systems are not operating efficiently or if you are losing heat or air. There are things you can do to save energy and energy costs. The energy department estimates that it can improve energy savings by up to 35% by increasing its energy efficiency.

Insulate, reduce air leakage

To increase energy efficiency, make sure you don’t lose your conditioned air (heated or cooled) through doors, windows or attic. Adding insulation if there is not enough can help keep the conditioned air where it belongs. In addition, it may be beneficial to check exposed pipes, outlets and ductwork for air leaks. An insulating wrap can be applied to these areas to seal them properly.

Your air flow

Replacing your Air Filters and keeping indoor and outdoor units free of dirt and debris can help keep the air flowing. This can help increase energy efficiency. Your systems require adequate airflow to operate efficiently. Air filters should be checked monthly and replaced at least every three months.

Programmable thermostats

Installing programmable thermostats is an excellent way to reduce your energy costs. They allow you to heat or cool specific areas at specific times of the day. This can result in energy savings by reducing your energy use in those areas.

Upgrade your equipment

If your current system is older, but well maintained, it may benefit from an upgrade. Replacing components in otherwise well-maintained systems may be a good option for you. Components such as compressors, controls or other parts are a less expensive replacement option to complete the system replacement.
