Maximize Energy Efficiency & Keep Costs Down in the Winter
If you’ve been wondering why your heating bill is so high during the winter, there’s a good chance you’re losing heat from windows and doors. Learn how you can improve your home’s energy efficiency this winter.
Maintain Your Heating System
Proper maintenance of your heating system throughout the year will help you avoid costly emergency repairs during the winter. Make sure to contact an HVAC professional to conduct seasonal maintenance on your heat pumps and furnaces.
Invest in a Smart Thermostat
A smart thermostat can increase energy-efficiency throughout the home, which can save hundreds of dollars per year. With a Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat, you can set the temperature inside of your home from anywhere! To save the most energy, turn the temperature down by 10 degrees while you’re away. Smart thermostats allow you to program the time to begin warming your house. We recommend warming your home 30 minutes before you arrive.
Check Your Insulation
Inspect doors and windows for air drafts and fill any cracks with caulk to prevent further heat loss. Old rubber weather-stripping can lower its effectiveness over time. Consider replacing worn weatherproofing to prevent air drafts. Investing in energy-efficient windows and doors will further improve efficiency and keep your heating bills down during the winter.
Energy-Efficient Heating Equipment
Electric heating from a heat pump is measured using HSPF, Heating Season Performance Factor. Currently, Lennox XP25 is the most energy-efficient heat pump on the market.
Gas furnace ratings are measured differently than air conditioners and heating pumps. Furnace efficiency is measured in AFUE, Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. The Lennox SLP98V is the quietest and most efficient furnace on the market.
Jackson Hardware Heating & Air Conditioning is proud to offer a wide variety of energy efficient Lennox products that fit your budget. Whether you need a furnace, heat pump, or a convenient mini split, we sell and service the best products on the market.
