3 HVAC Upgrades That Can Help You Save

With the right upgrades for your heater or air conditioner you help the environment and increase the value of your Arlington, Virginia, home. Many upgrades will also pay for themselves over time through energy savings. You can save money with HVAC upgrades like a programmable thermostat, better insulation, and an efficient new furnace.

A Programmable Thermostat

You can set a programmable thermostat to raise or lower your home’s temperature automatically when you leave for work or go to sleep. That way, your family can stay comfortable and save money without overworking your HVAC system.

With some programmable thermostats, you can choose a different schedule for every day of the week. With other models, you can set one schedule for weekdays and another for weekends.

Good Insulation

Many older homes were built with minimal insulation. Drafts are common, even in newer homes. Some insulation becomes less effective over time, and pests can create air leaks.

Search for drafts by shutting off your HVAC system and carrying a candle or a piece of string near windows and doors. A leak in your insulation will make the candle flicker or the string move. Updating your insulation and fixing drafts can help you cut your energy costs drastically

An Efficient New Furnace

If your furnace is more than 10 years old, it’s time to start thinking about upgrading to a more energy-efficient model. When the spring arrives and you don’t need to rely on it for heat anymore, consider investing in a new unit. Installing a new heating system this spring will help you save energy and money next winter. Don’t wait until it’s too late and your furnace has broken down to consider replacing it.
