There is no better feeling than seeing trees full of leaves, hearing birds sing, and feeling the warm rays of the sun hitting your skin. That’s the wonderful feeling of Spring making its way to central Texas! However, with great times come great responsibilities! The change in temperature can present new challenges when it comes to your monthly bills. It always helps to understand how to conserve energy, which in turn conserves your hard-earned bucks. By following just a few simple tips, you can make your home more comfortable while boosting your HVAC spring savings:
The first thing you can do to increase your HVAC spring savings is to make sure that your system can breathe. Changing your HVAC filter and having your air ducts cleaned regularly ensures that dirt and allergens in your home’s air are kept to a minimum. A dirty A/C filter will slow down airflow and make the system work harder to keep your home cool. Ductwork may not be the first thing you think about, but a leak can cause major problems and increase your monthly electricity bill. By maintaining your ductwork and air filter(s), you can keep your system running at full capacity for longer while saving you money!
As temperatures start to rise, remember that energy-efficient systems can keep you cool while boosting your spring savings! No matter what system you have in place, you can save money and increase efficiency by properly operating and maintaining your equipment. That being said, technology innovations in the last few years have led to some of the most efficient systems ever hitting the market. If your system is on its last leg or it’s costing you a fortune each month in electricity, it may be time to explore the idea of a new unit.

Smart thermostats have become an effective method of controlling your home’s environment from wherever you happen to be! Smart thermostats are a major upgrade when it comes to lowering your electric bill – you can save up to 10% a year on heating and cooling by adjusting the climate control down by 7°–10°F for 8 hours a day during the spring! Not only can you set a schedule for your thermostat, allowing it to turn off while your home is empty and kick back on before you return, but you can also check its performance reports to see when it’s working the hardest. A smart thermostat can help to ensure that the air quality in your home is up to snuff by monitoring the outdoor pollen/allergen levels and kicking on the fan when necessary. You’ll also be reminded when it’s time to clean/replace your filters, keeping your system healthy and breathing well. Smart thermostats are one of the easiest and most efficient ways to boost your spring savings!
