Discover how you can make energy savings in your home:
1. Energy Efficient Heating
Modern heating systems are far more energy efficient than the best models on the market from just 10 years ago. By ensuring your new system is professionally installed and is correctly sized and rated for the size of your home and heating needs, you could be enjoying significant savings on your energy consumption and lower utility bills.
2. Home Zoning
With a home zoning upgrade to your heating system, you can separate your home into 'zones', whether it be room by room or sections of your house such as upstairs and downstairs. The benefit of this is you decide what 'zones' are heated when you want it - you're in control of your energy consumption and costs because you're no longer wasting energy heating areas of your home not in use.
3. Digital Programmable Thermostats
One of the simplest ways of reducing the energy costs associated with your heating is with a digital programmable thermostat upgrade. The thermostat allows you to set the desired temperature and as soon as that temperature is reached, the system shuts down and only comes on again to ensure the desired temperature is maintained. You can also program your system to switch on at desired times such as before you come home, so you won't have to either come home to a cold house or have to leave the heating running all day. You simply set the thermostat to switch on at your desired time and come home to a warm and cosy home.
4. Expert Installations
It is essential that any heating system or upgrade be installed by a professional who has sized and rated the system to match the needs of you and your home. This will ensure that your new system is able to reach its full energy efficient capability and make you real savings on your energy consumption and costs.
5. Preventative Maintenance and Tune Ups
To ensure you continue to get the maximum energy efficiency out of your systems, most manufacturers and utility companies recommend that maintenance be performed at least once-a-year. This will ensure you continue to save money on your utility bills and your system operates at its maximum potential efficiency. Unmaintained systems work harder to reach the desired output, wasting energy and money on your utility bills.
