Don’t let the cold weather get you down! Maximize your home or business’ heating efficiency to save money and stay warm this winter. Here are our 5 tips to help you maximize heating efficiency:
- Schedule Routine Maintenance
Even the best HVAC systems need routine maintenance! Proper HVAC maintenance won’t only save you on your operating costs and energy bills– it also prolongs the life of your system and protects your equipment’s warranty! At Gilman Cooling and Heating our certified technicians are available to service HVAC systems in Lee, Collier, and Charlotte County. Call us today to learn more about the advantages of routine maintenance and discuss pricing options!
- Keep Heat In
Whether you are a business that likes keeping the door open for customers or a homeowner who likes sleeping with the window open— letting in the cold air could be having a big impact on your heating efficiency! Some other ways to effectively keep heat in your home or business include drawing the curtains on your windows at night and installing door sweeps on entry doors and quick seal on windows.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
Changing your furnace filter on your HVAC system could save you up to 15% on energy consumption! That’s because having a dirty filter slows down air flow, making it more difficult and time-consuming to pump air throughout your home. Energy Star recommends replacing your filter once every 3 months. If you don’t know where to buy a filter in Southwest Florida or how to install it — call Gillman Cooling and Heating. We’d be happy to help!
- Install A Smart Thermostat
Keeping your heating system off or turned down when you aren’t at home or work is a great way to save money— but no one wants to walk into a cold building and wait for it to heat up! That’s why smart thermostats are a great investment for homeowners and businesses alike! These thermostats allow you to turn down the temperature in your home or business from your phone and then turn it back up an hour or so before you arrive!
- Invest In A New Energy-Efficient Heating System
Having the best, most reliable heating system in your home or business is a fantastic way to improve heating efficiency. According to Energy Star, replacing your old heating and cooling equipment can cut your annual energy bill by nearly $140. Gilman Heating and Cooling offers a full range of state-of-the-art, high-efficiency heating options. Call us today to request an estimate!
