How to Lower Your Energy Bills

April 20, 2019

At Vastola Heating & Cooling in Orchard Park, NY, we understand how important it is to save money on your energy bills. There are several ways that you could make your home more energy efficient; however, some of the most effective methods involve dealing with your heating and cooling system. It all starts with being proactive and looking for solutions.

Some steps you can take include:

  • Increasing the insulation in your home
  • Lowering your thermostat a few degrees in the winter
  • Using solar energy when possible
  • Minimizing air leaks in your home

Opening your shades, especially on south-facing windows, can let light and warmth in. Closing your shades at night will keep heat in order to save you energy.

Optimizing Your HVAC System

Having a fully functional HVAC system can greatly reduce your energy costs. Getting regular maintenance for your heating and cooling system can ensure that everything is functioning properly. New heaters and air conditioners are also more efficient than older ones and could reduce your energy bills. Choosing a unit that has a high energy-efficiency rating could be a great investment in your home. While you may pay more for a modern HVAC system up front, the lower utility costs will eventually pay for the upgrade.`
