It’s a hot day in Florida, and you step into your house from the blistering heat to find that your main foyer is quite stuffy. You know you paid your air conditioning bill this month, as you remember gawking at the price when reading the bill. Where is that cool air going? Chances are good that it’s being lost during its travels through your ducts.
To save money and energy, many homeowners are switching to a programmable thermostat that allow them to control the amount of heat or cooling air they use during the summer, winter, day and night. By programming the thermostat, a homeowner can reduce their utility bills to a manageable size to fit their budget.
Many homeowners are interested in making their home more energy efficient but have no idea where to begin. Because our hot and muggy Florida climate means our air conditioners work much harder than those in other parts of the country, it’s vital to make sure our homes are as energy efficient as possible.
If you are looking for an energy-efficient, environmentally friendly way to keep your Florida home or pool at a comfortable temperature, a geothermal heating and cooling system may be the way to go. Geothermal heating and cooling systems, also known as heat pumps, have been named by Energy Star as one of most efficient, and comfortable, heating and cooling technologies on the market. And they work using something Florida has a lot of: water.
With summer almost here, you might be starting to worry about how long you’ve neglected your air conditioner. Luckily, it’s never too late for for planned maintenance. By keeping your air conditioning system on a routine maintenance schedule, you’ll not only see an increase in energy efficiency, you’ll extend the life of your system.
