Do you bring a coupon book to the grocery store? Have you become a master bargainer? Whether you’re this serious about saving money or not, no one can complain about saving a little cash. Unfortunately, homeowners in Longview, Texas, are likely wasting energy and losing money in ways they don’t even realize. Understanding how you may be using and maintaining your HVAC system incorrectly can help you to save money and energy.

Wrong HVAC System Size

HVAC systems are not one size fits all. One system may work perfectly in one home but be very inefficient in another. Whether you live in an older home or you’re just worried that your HVAC system could be improperly sized for the needs of your home, contact your local HVAC technician. Your techs at JD’s can let you know if you’re losing energy and money because of an incorrectly sized HVAC system.

Poor Temperature Control

We all want to be comfortable. On cold days, it’s tempting to blast the heat, and vice versa on hot days. However, no matter how well your HVAC system performs, you’re wasting energy if the temperature in your home is drastically different from the air outside. We’re not saying to suffer in a home that’s too hot or cold, but when the situation permits, try to keep your indoor temperature as close as possible to the temperature outside.

Lack of Maintenance

Without regular maintenance, an HVAC system does not run as efficiently as it could. Professional maintenance ensures that all components of an HVAC system are in their best condition and performing as efficiently as possible. If you’ve forgotten to have your system maintained for a year or more, give your local HVAC contractor a call today.

Saving energy is as simple as addressing your HVAC system’s performance. If your system is performing efficiently, then every bit of energy is going where it belongs. To stop the energy waste caused by your HVAC system, give JD’s Air Conditioning a call today at (903) 759-7483.
