Energy efficiency isn’t just the buzzword of our current century. It is an important consideration for everything that we do in order to preserve the Earth for future generations. Coming up with green energy solutions, particularly for heating and cooling, is a vital part of reducing our impact on the environment. There are a number of things that you can do to help in this endeavor that will not only help our planet, but your own financial wellbeing, as well.
- Downsize – There is a growing trend toward smaller and greener homes, with people downsizing after retirement or even far before that. The growing popularity of tiny homes over oversized homes is encouraging. A smaller home needs far less energy for heating and cooling, not to mention fewer chemicals to clean, and it forces you to keep belongings at a minimum.
- Maintain – Even the most energy-efficient heating and cooling system cannot operate at peak energy conservation as it was manufactured to do if you forego regular maintenance on it. Twice a year servicing – typically in spring and autumn – is the best way to keep it operating as it should.
- Insulate – There are many types of insulation that can be added to your home to make it more energy-efficient, thereby reducing heating and cooling costs. Also be sure you aren’t experiencing energy loss due to duct leaks and other conditions.
- Upgrade – Upgrade old, inefficient appliances that are gobbling up utilities—including your HVAC system.
