4 Tips for Home Energy Efficiency

April 11, 2022 | Blog

‘Energy efficient’ is a phrase every homeowner loves to hear and see. Energy efficiency can mean saving money on your energy bill and doing some good for the environment. Our team at Baldwin Heating & Air Conditioning wants to give you some tips on how you can create a more energy-efficient home!

Everyday Things Homeowners Can Do

There is a list of some everyday things homeowners can do to create a more energy-efficient home. Here are some basic guidelines most homeowners can follow to increase the efficiency of their homes:

  • Turn off water and lights when not using
  • Unplug cables from outlets when they are not in use
  • Replace your incandescent light bulbs with more energy-efficient LED bulbs

Now that we have shown you a few basics, here are some more significant improvements you can make to your home to create a more efficient living space.

Receive an Annual HVAC Tune-Up

One of the most important things homeowners can do is receive an HVAC tune-up at least once a year. We recommend getting one twice a year, once before both summer and winter.

Consider tune-ups as preventative maintenance; they will help to ensure your system runs smoothly as possible. Our trained professionals will thoroughly inspect your AC unit during a tune-up. They will be able to locate any issues with your unit and lead you to ways you can improve your home’s energy efficiency.

Consider a New AC Unit

The newer models of AC units tend to be more energy-efficient than older models, especially when buying an Energy Star certified unit. If you want to upgrade your older model to a more energy-efficient option, our team is ready to service you!

Ductless Heating and Cooling

Ductless systems are one of the most energy-efficient heating and cooling systems. Rather than bulky ductwork added to your home, ductless AC works by having a central unit outside with multiple indoor units. The indoor units are powered by pumps that flow from the main unit.

Ductless heating can also provide your home with zone-based heating and cooling. With the ability to change the temperature in each room, you can better control your home’s energy usage.

Replace Air Filters Regularly

Regularly replacing your air filters can also help improve your home’s energy consumption. When air filters get clogged, it will overwork your AC system and could cause it to shut off from overheating potentially. Regularly changing your air filters will help get your indoor air quality the best.

We recommend homeowners change their air filters at least once a month. If you have any pets or often keep your door and windows open, we recommend checking your filters twice a week to ensure they are not clogged.

Excellent install of a generator by Jake & Ryan. They went over and above, working late waiting for the utility inspector to come out for final inspection. Couldn’t be happier…these guys are the best.
