Lower Utility Bills with the Comfort Squad
If utility costs prohibit you from running your AC or heating system as much as you need them, we can help. Comfort Squad provides repairs and comprehensive equipment maintenance that improve the energy efficiency of your HVAC equipment. Like your car, a well-maintained HVAC system performs more effectively than a neglected one. Scheduling seasonal inspections and tune-ups helps to prevent the unnecessary rise of utility bills—and keeps you more comfortable, season-to-season.
Home Solutions for Lower Utility Bills
In addition to scheduled maintenance visits, there are a few simple things you can do to get utility charges under control.
- Filter changes. Your filter is designed to keep dirt and debris from entering your system and ductwork. If your filter is clogged, it can’t do its job. Change the AC filter every six to eight weeks during seasons of heavy use, and never go more than three months without a filter change. You may also want to invest in a high-efficiency media filter for improved filtration and reduced allergy symptoms.
- Keep foliage and dirt away from your condenser unit. Outdoor coils get dirty when lawnmower clippings, leaves, and debris enter your outdoor unit. Trim back foliage and clean dirt off of your condenser on a regular basis.
- Upgrade to a high-efficiency HVAC system. While you’ll pay more upfront for this improved equipment, it will keep you more comfortable and reduce utility bills. In some cases, our customers save between 20 and 30% when they replace their aging air conditioner or heater!
