How Can I Increase the Energy Efficiency of my Home in Preparation of Summer?
With summer right around the corner it is probably time to start thinking about how you can increase the energy efficiency of your home in preparation of the intense heat that is headed our way. As a Florida homeowner, the summer heat can be a real threat to our HVAC systems and without making a few adjustments before the season begins you can be left with much higher than usual energy bills.
In order to achieve a level of energy efficiency that may even decrease your energy bill there are a few adjustments you can make to your home, for example:
- Adding proper insulation to your home will permit a better temperature control and may even cut down on excessive outdoor noise.
- Changing the air filters in your HVAC system is a key component of maintaining a functioning system. If your filter is dirty or clogged it will reduce the amount of airflow through your system and will force it to work harder to keep your home cool.
- Be mindful of any lights left on when not in use. If you’re serious about lowering your monthly energy bill, this is one of the easiest adjustments you can make.
