nest-thermostat

There's an extremely simple way to reduce your heating and cooling costs without buying additional equipment. You can begin saving energy costs immediately when you set your thermostat properly.

It is normal to set an air conditioner thermostat between 75 and 80 degrees. It is normal to set the thermostat for your heating system between 68 and 72 degrees. You should always set your thermostat to the highest possible setting that is comfortable for you in the warmer months, and the lowest comfortable setting in the colder months. If you adjust your thermostat accordingly, you will maximize your energy savings.

How much money can you expect to save? On average, every 1 degree of temperature change is equal to about 10% energy savings. For example, changing your thermostat setting from 75 degrees to 76 degrees in the summer could result in about a 10% savings on your cooling costs.

level9-1-1

Looking for ideas on how your home energy costs? Want to explore green energy options? Lots of people don’t even know what geothermal heating and cooling system are or how they work. Here's a simple explanation

The Earth collects about 50% of the sun's energy and remains a constant temperature of 50°F to 70°F depending on the geographic location. A system that utilizes geothermal energy, can use this constant temperature to offer you significant savings whenever you are trying to heat and cool your home.

What many individuals don't realize is that it is possible to save as much as 60% of their energy costs when they compare them against traditional heating and cooling (HVAC) systems. There is no flame, no flue, no odors, and no loud outdoor equipment. A single compact unit can be used as a hot water heating system as well as for heating and air conditioning your home.

How To Reduce Indoor Air Pollutants & Improve Indoor Air Quality

Want to maximize indoor air quality and reduce the indoor air pollutants in your home?

A high-efficiency air cleaner might help. You can eliminate as much as 99% of the pollen and spores that find their way into your home through your heating and cooling system. You can also eliminate a great deal of the household dust, dirt, smoke, and other air pollutants in your HVAC system. Your indoor air will become cleaner and fresher while reducing the allergens and dust that circulate throughout your house.

If you use a whole house humidifier, you can drastically reduce the annoying discomfort of dry indoor air. A good humidifier works to reduce itchy skin, scratchy throats, static electricity, and damage to your furnishings and woodwork.

One thing that most people don’t realize is this. Since humid air feels warmer than dry air, you do not have to set the thermostat as high to feel the comfort you want. A lower thermostat setting will reduce the costs of your energy bill.
