Common Sense Approach to Saving Energy

The heating or cooling load for your home is a measurement of the amount of hot or cold air that it takes to bring your home to a comfortable temperature. This air can either be introduced to the home or removed from the home depending on the external and internal temperatures. The first analysis that needs to take place is a thorough check for any energy leaks that may be located in your home.

Check for energy waste by examining the window areas for drafts. Drafts are a sure sign of air leaks which can have a considerable effect on the cost of energy bills. The best way to check for drafts is to use a candle. Simply hold the candle near the widow areas to see if the flame blows in a certain direction. If the flame blows away from the windows, you will know that you have a potential draft situation. Windows can be caulked or weather stripped to cut down on air leakage. The outside of the windows can be helped with the use of thermal-backed window treatments that will help and prevent air from entering the home.

The next step is to perform an inspection of any crawlspaces or attics that you have in your home. Be certain that these areas are benefitting from the maximum amount of insulation. An attic or crawlspace may let an abundance of heat escape if they are not properly insulated. In addition, a well-insulated attic will prevent heat from entering the home during the summer months. This will lead to savings on the costs of air conditioning.

There are many other steps you can take in order to save on energy costs:

– Close off rooms or areas of your home that are rarely used. Any dampers can also be closed in rooms that are rarely used will also help.

– Areas around outlets and electrical switches will often allow drafts to enter a room. Seal up these areas to prevent air from entering or escaping.

– Energy efficient fluorescent bulbs can be used to replace incandescent bulbs for further savings.

– Program your thermostat to control the temperature while you are awake and inhabiting your home and to adjust itself while you are sleeping or outside the home. If your thermostat is not programmable, you may want to upgrade. The upgrade will pay for itself in the long run.

The above steps will save you money on your heating and cooling bills. In addition, you will be helping the environment by not wasting energy. Perform a complete energy audit of your home today, so that you can begin your energy savings.

We've been Hobaica heat pump and maintenance customers since 1997. Just had a semiannual maintenance visit from Amer on our very new Lennox system installed last Fall. Amer was very thorough and a pleasure to work with. Excellent service, as usual, from Hobaica.Another maintenance today (3/21) done by Scott and Travis. Again, very thorough inspection. And pleasant to work with.
