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. "
Don't Let Your Fireplace Work Against You
It’s hard to believe, but your fireplace could be making your home colder and forcing your heater to work harder. Warmed air can fly right up your chimney, so keep the damper closed unless there’s a fire going. You can also keep reduce drafts by caulking around the hearth and checking the seal on the flue damper to make sure it’s as snug as possible. If you never use your fireplace, consider plugging and sealing the flue completely. Combine this idea with additional tips and energy efficient equipment options from us, the Westinghouse HVAC experts, to reduce annual energy costs. Call for more information today.
Maximize the Heat from Your Fireplace
A roaring fire looks warm, but is it really? Here are a few easy ways you can help your fireplace heat more efficiently and save costly energy in the process. Install tempered glass doors and a heat-air exchange system that blows warmed air back into the room. Purchase grates made of C-shaped metal tubes to draw cool room air into the fireplace and circulate warm air back into the room. The Westinghouse HVAC experts have lots of other ideas on how you can save energy, as well as heater models that can cut your annual energy bills significantly. Call us for more information today.
