How to Save Energy and Money With HVAC Systems

February 27, 2018

Keeping your Raleigh, North Carolina, home comfortable can be energy-intensive, especially on the hottest summer days. With a few easy changes, however, you can reduce energy consumption all year long. From using a smart thermostat to investing in an Energy Star unit, discover how to save energy and money with your HVAC system.

Use a Smart Thermostat

Installing a new smart thermostat or optimizing your current device are two of the most effective ways to lower your energy usage. At Cape Fear Air Conditioning, we recommend using a connected device such as the Comfort Link II XL1050, which allows you to program energy-efficient temperatures for each day of the week. You can set the device to dial back the temperature automatically when you’re out for the day or asleep at night, which can impact your energy consumption significantly.

Many smart thermostats also provide energy reports, which you can use to identify when you use the most energy. With accurate data in hand, you can make smart choices about adjusting your thermostat and reducing energy consumption.

Consider Zoning Systems

If you use some areas of your home less than others, you can save energy with zoning systems. When our team installs zoning systems, we effectively divide your home into at least two heating and cooling areas. Because each zone has its own thermostat, you can keep cooling to a minimum in areas you don’t use often. If you program each zone to the most efficient thermostat settings, you can save substantial energy.

Opt for an Energy Star System

When your HVAC system ages and can no longer keep up with your cooling needs, replace it with an Energy-Star-certified system. These air conditioners, heat pumps, and furnaces meet or exceed national efficiency standards, meaning you can look forward to energy savings for years to come.

Whether you’re in the market for a new air conditioner or you want to improve your existing system, we’re here to help you save energy. Call Cape Fear Air Conditioning, Heating & Electrical Company today at 919-246-5801.
