Homeowners looking over energy bill

Are you striving for energy efficiency in your home? You’re not alone. Everyone wants to lower their energy bills by increasing household efficiency. When it comes to your HVAC system, do you know the impact it has on your energy use? Take a look at what you need to know.

Heating and Cooling and Your Energy Bill

Of all the things that keep your home running, your heating and cooling system is one of the most important. It’s also one of the most expensive. Running an HVAC system can often account for up to 30% of household energy use. That can have a huge impact on your monthly energy bills, especially if your equipment is old and inefficient. 

What Does Energy Efficiency Mean?

New heating and cooling equipment is subject to government regulations that require increased levels of energy efficiency. HVAC units that take less energy to do the same job will keep your home more comfortable for less money. They will also have a smaller impact on the environment.

Why Upgrade to Energy Efficient Equipment?

Upgrading your equipment to Energy Star rated units can save up to 30% on your monthly bills. Over time, you can pay for the equipment with the money you'll save by using less energy. As an added bonus, reducing your energy consumption in one area of your home can have a large impact on your annual household energy use overall.

Your HVAC system has an enormous impact on your energy bill. By taking some steps to improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling units, you can save serious money. For more information on easy ways to increase your energy efficiency, talk to our team at Helms Heating and Air Conditioning.
