Got energy efficiency on your mind? You’re not alone. Everyone is trying to use less energy and save more money when it comes to heating and cooling their homes. Helping out the situation are some of the best HVAC add-ons that can help boost the efficiency of your system. Here are just 2 of them:

1. Programmable Thermostat

If you haven’t invested in an upgraded thermostat, it’s time. A digital programmable thermostat is a great way to decrease your energy consumption and lower your utility bills. But don’t worry—you won’t be sacrificing comfort in the process.

A programmable thermostat can help you create the right temperature schedule for your house and your lifestyle. Will everyone be out of the house all day? Turn down the heat a degree or two automatically by setting the schedule on your thermostat. Then program it to bump back up just before you get home. Going on vacation? Do the same thing. You’ll never notice the change in temperature, but you will notice a change in your utility bills.

2. Whole-House Humidifier

It’s not the heat; it’s the humidity. And in the winter, that’s the truth when it comes to keeping your home warm without spending a fortune. Humid air holds heat better and feels warmer than drier air. Adding a humidifier can make your home more comfortable so you have to use your heating system less, which will save you money.

It’s easy to make small changes that make a big difference in the energy you use and the money you spend. For more HVAC add-on ideas that can boost the energy efficiency of your system, contact our team at Helms Heating and Air Conditioning by calling 704-821-6255 or by clicking here.
