Tips for Making Your Attic Air Tight
If you want to reduce energy costs, start by looking for air leaks in your attic. Cover gaps where chimneys and furnace flues penetrate your attic floor with flashing or seal with heat resistant caulk. Seal holes or tears in air ducts with mastic or foil tape. Then insulate. Contact us, the Westinghouse HVAC experts, for help with conducting a complete energy audit of your home. With just a few simple suggestions, we can help you increase comfort and save money, too.
How to Save Energy by Using Your Thermostat
"How well are you using your programmable thermostat? Think about when your family wakes up, leaves the house and goes to bed. Then, set your thermostat to change temperature at these times. Realize winter savings by programming your thermostat to drop by eight degrees when you’re away and when you’re sleeping. In the summer, increase the temperature by seven degrees when you’re away and by four degrees when you’re sleeping. And never override your thermostat or place it on hold. Turning the temperature way up or down won’t make your system heat or cool faster, but it will make it work overtime and wreak havoc on your energy bills. Ask us, the Westinghouse HVAC experts, how to optimize your settings during your next pre-season checkup. It could save you as much as $180 a year. "
Where a Heat Pump Is a Good Idea
Will a heat pump save you money? If you live where temperatures typically stay above freezing and electric rates are low, the answer is most likely yes. Heat pumps draw heat from outdoor air in winter and release it inside. In summer, the process is reversed. The cost of buying and installing a heat pump divided by the total hours used each year is often less than that of buying and installing individual heating and air systems. As Westinghouse HVAC experts, we can recommend a heat pump or other equipment that can cut your energy bills while keeping your home more comfortable. Call us for a consultation today.
