Financial Awareness Day – Saving money with efficient home systems
August 14th is National Financial Awareness Day, a great time to evaluate the more expensive, but less obvious areas of your finances. Central air systems are a major investment, and they don’t have to become money pits. By better understanding your home, your heating and air can actually work to save you money in the long run.
Read on to learn more about the money you invest in your home systems.
Install a Properly Sized System
Making sure your HVAC system can accommodate your space is foundational to getting the most out of your investment. Heating and air systems each utilize a certain amount of energy measured in BTUs, or British Thermal Units, which will be working in proportion to your home’s square footage.
This is vital to maximizing how well your HVAC works while minimizing costs. Having too big of a system will utilize more energy than naturally needed to accommodate your space. Having too small of a unit would force it to work at its maximum, causing the system to fail at heating or cooling the whole house comfortably.
The experts at Elmer’s are committed to fitting your home with the proper systems to keep your family healthy and comfortable. Check out our air conditioning page to learn more about how we continue to provide customers with reliable systems and high-quality service.
Secure Your Investment
Whether you’re working with a brand new system or a preexisting unit, you’ll be budgeting for more than just a utility bill. Just as you would insure your home, backup your laptop, or register other major items with the necessary protection plans, finding a home warranty to suit your needs can mean the difference between major emergency spending worries and feeling reassured if things go awry.
These tiered plans can cover the repair or replacement of many things from your home systems, to major appliances, or both, without the need to make a massive dent in your savings.
If you’re looking to get a home warranty, it’s important to do your research and find a plan that works best for your budget and needs. Securing these systems early on can save you from the stress of emergency repairs, without breaking the bank.
Clean and Maintain to Save
Your systems are installed, secured, and working to keep your home’s air comfortable, and you want to keep it that way. Any kind of investment is going to need a bit of TLC and HVAC is no exception. Be sure to schedule necessary cleaning and maintenance whenever needed.
Annual tune-ups, preventative maintenance, duct sealing, filter replacement, and cleaning will ensure maximum efficiency and savings for your household. This will give you the peace of mind that you’ll be protected against allergens, toxins, and other harmful results of poorly kept ducts.
