Almost as certain as death and taxes is that your heating and cooling bills will steadily increase every year. However, there are a few steps you can take to help keep those bills in check.
1. Consider updating your HVAC systems. Modern heating and cooling systems are dramatically more energy efficient than those of just five years ago. If you have an older heating or cooling system, you could save a considerable amount of money each month by upgrading.
2. Invest in a programmable thermostat. One relatively inexpensive way you can help keep down both your heating and your cooling costs is to install a programmable thermostat. For less than $100, you can automatically lower the temperature in the winter and raise it in the summer when you’re asleep or away from the house at work or school.
3. Harvest the earth’s energy with a heat pump. Another way to save money on your monthly heating and cooling bills is to install a heat pump system. Such systems act as both a heating system in the winter and a cooling system in the summer. A heat pump works by transferring naturally-conditioned air from just beneath the soil line to the interior of your home, saving the energy it would take to create this heated or cooled air. You may even qualify for an energy tax credit on your federal tax return.
