Depending on where you live, your energy bills may increase during the cooler months as the demand for hot water and heat increases. With the prices of energy going to increase as well, so does your utility bills. This same holds true during the summer. So, what’s the best way to heat
your home without having to overwork your HVAC system and pay a fortune?
A very resourceful way to enjoy the warm air while saving a few bucks is using a heat pump. A heat pump is a form of renewable energy that has gained recognition in both commercial and residential buildings. They are used to heat and cool as well as heat up water. Heat pumps draw in natural heat rather than wasting fossil fuels to produce it.
Fans and Ventilation Systems
Another great way to make your home more energy efficient is by using your home’s HVAC ventilation systems
or fans. These two systems are responsible for moving air into your home while constantly providing freshness without the need of opening a window. While there are a lot of options to choose from, it’s highly recommended that you use whole-house fans and passive home ventilation for the best results. If you're still not sure how to maximize your fans, an HVAC professional can help you stay cool while saving money as well.
This option is best suited for people who live in areas that are both hot and dry. Evaporative coolers are considered to be one of the greatest alternatives to air conditioners. Not only do they add moisture into the air, but they also lower the cost of your monthly utility when compared to their counterparts. These coolers utilize moist pads to circulate and cool the air in the surrounding area.
