Ways to Green Your Home in Winter
Looking to make your home more “green” and energy efficient for 2016? There are many ways to turn your home into a more efficient and comfortable one. Here are a few:
Installing a programmable thermostat can be a game changer for your home’s heating and cooling. In fact, it can help you save up to 30 percent on your home’s energy. This thermostat will automatically adjust the temperature before you go to bed and before you wake up to ensure maximum comfort levels.
From allergies to mold and mildew, your home contains many pollutants that minimize your comfort. Turn things around with air filters that help your equipment stay clean longer. Such air filters include electronic air cleaners, HEPA air cleaners, and ultra-violet air purification. At Leslie Heating and Cooling, we use high quality products that can take out even the most tiny air particles that keep both your home and equiptment fresh.
Without insulation, you can waste money on your utility bills. Why? Because no matter how much warm or cool air your equipment is pumping out, if your home doesn’t have proper insulation, your home won’t stay at a steady temperature. So check your attic, crawl space, and any other areas of the home that feel more cool than the rest.
Replace old equipment
Reduce carbon emissions and boost your home’s HVAC efficiency by replacing old equipment that no longer works properly. For example, installing a new furnace can lower utility bills and restore your equipment’s lifespan.
