How to Make Your Air Conditioner More Efficient?
How are you to day? We hope that it’s good.
How about your monthly bills? We hope it’s good too but in fact, it makes you worry sometime.
Do you know what is the main factor of increasing your bills?
Saving energy is saving money. The more energy efficient you make, the more money you will save. How much you will save depends on the age, the location of your house, and other factors. Below are some guidelines to give you a general idea for making your air conditioning system more efficient, to figure out how much energy your house is wasting, and how much you can save in energy costs.
Household energy consumption
The above chart illustrates the energy consumption in a typical household in US. Heating and cooling account for nearly half of home energy use, and a large percentage of utility costs. Good maintenance and/or upgrading to an energy efficient HVAC system will save much money for you on utility bills immediately and throughout the life of the whole system. When selecting new HVAC equipment, it’s very important to consider these future energy savings. Normally, a high efficiency system may require a greater initial investment but the long term energy saving need to be considered.
A programmable thermostat can save you up to $180 every year in energy costs.
Protect your energy, protect your wallet. The more energy you lose, the more money you pay. That’s reason why you need to do the good insulation for your home. You can save up to 20% on heating and cooling costs by good air sealing and insulating and sometimes much more. Repair the old or replace the new HVAC system?As you know, if your heating and cooling equipment is old, it will be much less efficient than a newer system. You can repair your old system to save the cost but compared to replacing the new system with ENERGY STAR qualified system, it can cut your annual utility bills by up to $400 although the initial investment is high. So, should you call the Air Conditioning Repair Service to repair your system or just replace the new HVAC system to save your monthly bill?
Compared to a standard electric water heater, ENERGY STAR qualified heat pump water heaters can save the average household almost $300 per year on its electric bills.
According to ENERGY STAR, hot water leaking at a rate of one drip per second from a single faucet can waste up to 1,661 gallons of water each year, and up to $35 in electricity or $35 in natural gas! That’s unbelievable but that is true. Replacing older plumbing and faucets with newer, more energy efficient equipment mean that is a big saving.
ENERGY STAR rated appliances consume on average 20 to 30% less energy than the standard model. For example, an ENERGY STAR refrigerator will cut your utility bills by $165 over the lifetime of your fridge. Instead of buying a $1000 standard fridge, you should buy a $1100 Energy Star model, that is a good deal that you can save 65$ for energy saving. Replacing a fridge that is 10 years old or older could save you hundreds each year.
