This is particularly the case for homeowners who have not had professional heating services in Chandler, AZ area carried out on their heating systems for a while. If you are trying to go green like many of the homeowners in Chandler, you must be wondering how you can reduce energy consumption in your home this winter.
Basically, it is possible to reduce the much you pay in utility bills by up to 30 percent today. Much of the energy used in your home during the winter months will be consumed by the heating system. As such, you need to have your HVAC upgraded or replaced for improved efficiency. In this regard, the following are several of the ways you can improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system.
Have a Digital Thermostat Installed
As compared to traditional thermostats, digital thermostats have a comparatively higher degree of accuracy. Having been in this business for a considerable period, our heating and cooling experts will tell you that digital thermostats tend to regulate the on and off function of your heating and cooling system more accurately. As a result, such a thermostat will ensure that you have a constant temperature in your home.
The traditional, mercury thermostats are not that accurate; they allow the temperature reading in your home to fluctuate by between 4 and 8F. This inaccuracy causes the heating unit to run even harder, hence consume more energy. At Velocity Mechanical, LLC, we believe that changing the thermostat in your HVAC to a digital one can improve the efficiency of your system.
A Programmable Thermostat is Even Better
A programmable digital thermostat will not only make the system more accurate, but will also allow you to set multiple temperature settings for different times of the day. If you hire us to install such a thermostat in your heating and cooling unit, you will not only benefit from some of the best heating services in Chandler, AZ area, but we will also adjust the thermostat to a lower temperature reading during the day. In most cases, no one will be at home during the day. As a result, you won’t need to keep the unit operating at the same temperature as you would at night. This adjustment will make it possible for you to save a decent amount of money on your energy bills.
If you are still using an old fuel oil or coal fueled heating system in your home, replacing it with a modern, energy efficient unit will help you save on energy. With our expertise, you will be able to buy the most appropriate and energy efficient heating system that runs on natural gas or electricity.
