Heating and Cooling, Do It for Less in Aurora
The most expensive component of your monthly energy bill is heating and cooling. To maintain control, and even rein in these costs, think about system efficiency. The more efficient an HVAC system is, the less it costs to operate. Your household expenses will drop, and at the same time you will be doing the environment a favor.
If you are planning to construct a new home in Aurora, or you are about to replace your old, outdated, HVAC system, you need to consider all the latest technological innovations available. You also have to consider the cost of the system and the energy use. All of these factors equate to the cost of operation.
As you study the available options, focus on energy efficiency. The cost may be a little higher upfront, but you will recover this cost many times over thanks to a significant reduction in operating cost.
- Pay Attention to Details: The FTC demands that new HVAC equipment is labeled with information on energy efficiency. Pay attention to this information. It is a good way of comparing equipment; model to model.
- Energy Star: The Energy Star label indicates that the equipment is certified by the EPA and DOE, and it meets particular energy efficiency standards.
The wise consumer will arrange for an energy assessment. When this assessment takes place, a contractor is looking for places in your home where you are wasting money. There are places in your home that may be leaking; the attic is one, poor air ducts are another. Once the assessment is complete, seal any leaks that were found. In addition to the attic, there may be leaks around the doors, windows, and places where pipes go through an outside wall.
Once the leaks in your house are sealed, you can look forward to considerably smaller heating and cooling bills.
