Save Some Green: Boosting HVAC Efficiency in Your Older Home

Is your older home feeling drafty in the winter and stifling in the summer? You’re not alone. Older homes often lack the energy-efficient features of their modern counterparts, leading to discomfort and higher utility bills. But fear not, homeowners! Here are some ways to improve your HVAC system’s efficiency and create a more comfortable and cost-effective environment:

Simple Fixes with Big Impact:

  • Seal the deal: Drafty windows and doors are a major culprit when it comes to energy loss. Invest in weather stripping and caulking to seal any gaps and leaks.
  • Upgrade your thermostat: Consider a programmable thermostat that allows you to adjust temperatures based on your schedule and preferences. This can significantly reduce energy consumption while ensuring you’re comfortable when you’re at home.
  • Change your air filter regularly: A clogged filter makes your HVAC system work harder, leading to higher energy bills and potential breakdowns. Change your filter every 1-3 months, depending on the type and usage.

Investing in Long-Term Solutions:

  • Upgrade your insulation: Poorly insulated walls, attics, and basements allow heat to escape in the winter and enter in the summer. Adding insulation can significantly improve your home’s comfort and energy efficiency.
  • Consider a system upgrade: If your existing HVAC system is old and inefficient, replacing it with a newer, more energy-efficient model can be a worthwhile investment.
