Finding ways to save on your monthly utility bills can put extra cash in your pocket for activities you and your family truly enjoy. Your HVAC system can be a major drain on your electricity and on your budget. ENERGY STAR recommends these three steps to optimize your home’s energy efficiency and to improve comfort all year around.

Invest in Regular Maintenance

Replacing your air filter every month can improve the quality of your indoor air and may even reduce the risk of damage to moving parts of your HVAC system. ENERGY STAR also recommends at least annual maintenance visits from a professional technician to ensure that all elements of your heating and cooling system are working as intended.

Clean and Seal Ducts

Investing in professional duct cleaning and sealing can eliminate particulate matter and leaks that can affect the efficiency of your air conditioning system. By taking the time to ensure that these key elements of your HVAC system are clean and in good working order, you can significantly reduce wasted energy when heating and cooling your home.

Upgrade to Newer Equipment

Especially in the heat of summer in Lorton, Virginia, keeping your home cool can be an expensive proposition. Investing in a new air conditioning system can be a good first step toward achieving greater energy efficiency and reducing your electric bills during the hottest days of the year.
