How to Keep Your Auburn Home’s Energy Costs Low

May 30, 2020

Home Energy Costs

Many Auburn, AL, homeowners want to lower their energy costs. Energy Star rated heating and cooling systems use 20 percent less energy, according to Energy Sage. To lower energy costs, you can replace incandescent light bulbs with LEDs, increase attic insulation and also seal around doors and windows. Here are three additional tips for keeping your energy costs low.

Replace Air Filters

Your heating and cooling system’s filter captures dust and also other particles, providing you with cleaner air. After about one month of use, the air filter begins to get clogged. By three months of use, its pores will be fully obstructed, therefore reducing airflow and overworking your HVAC system. Replacing a dirty air filter with a clean one lowers heating and cooling costs by 15 percent, according to the Department of Energy.

Use a Programmable Thermostat

Programmable thermostats are another way to lower your bills. They feature away and vacation mode settings that reduce heating and cooling functions when you’re not at home. In winter, they lower the temperature, and in summer, they increase the temperature. Smart thermostats do this automatically. They also use your smartphone’s location to make energy-efficient adjustments to your home’s temperature.

Consider a Zoned Comfort System

Heating or cooling your entire house to the same temperature uses more energy than a zoned comfort system. With comfort zoning, you can heat or cool a smaller part of your home to the desired temperature. Each person’s bedroom could be its own zone, allowing for customized comfort and lower utility costs. A ductless mini-split allows up to four comfort zones. A ductless split system offers up to six comfort zones. These heating and cooling systems could lower your energy usage by up to 30 percent.
