I have been kicking around the idea recently to think of ways to reduce the cooling costs for the upcoming hot summer.
So I made a call to the HVAC company I’ve been doing business with for the past 20 years yesterday.
They were the ones who actually put in the home’s HVAC system. The property was largely purchased “as is” when we bought it. The seller merely desired to sell the house and be done with it. But there were numerous issues that needed to be resolved. We saved tens of thousands of dollars because we were willing to replace the heating and cooling system and make numerous other improvements. Surprisingly, I was able to enlist the assistance of friends, family, and professionals to get the place renovated exactly how we wanted it. We still use the HVAC company we selected. And yesterday I made the appointment for the air conditioning tune-up by calling the HVAC company. I carry out this every year, and it forms the cornerstone of my air conditioning cost-cutting strategy. We experience one of the hottest and muggiest summers ever. Therefore, you must monitor the thermostat, maintain a tight seal in the home, and prevent peak sunlight heating. They are the fundamentals. But I also like to mix in some fresh and novel advice. By grilling outside this summer, I’ll avoid heating the house at all this year. Considering all the heat energy they produce, the stove and oven really reduce the heat pump’s efficiency. In terms of increasing the amount we can save on air conditioning costs, this could be a significant development for us.
