How to Lower Your Utility Bills
Everyone’s goal when it comes to utility bills is to pay as little as possible. This month we’re helping you to do just that! Check out our latest blog with tips and tricks for lowering utility bills.
Be Mindful of Your Thermostat
As the temperatures start to rise outside, it’s tempting to want to lower your thermostat all the way down. However, doing this will make your home excessively cold, and crank up your cooling bill astronomically! According to the US Department of Energy, the most comfortable and economical thermostat setting is 78 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer.
Schedule HVAC Maintenance
We recommend scheduling HVAC maintenance at least twice a year, once before turning your AC on, and once before turning your heating system on. This will allow our team of professionals to inspect the unit and make sure everything is in working order before you’re in dire need of using your system.
We’re also able to spot minor issues before they turn into major problems for your unit, which will save you comfort and money in the long run!
Inspect Your Homes Electrical Systems
Keeping an eye on your electrical system will benefit not only your electrical bills but also the safety and structure of your home and its residents.
Watch Your Water Waste
Whether you leave the faucet running while brushing your teeth or you have a hidden leak somewhere in your house, water waste is a major drain on the water supply and your wallet! Saving this water is simple, it just requires a bit more awareness about how you’re using water throughout your home.
Any problems with your home’s heating and cooling, plumbing, or electrical systems will usually result in higher utility bills. To prevent paying bills through the roof this summer, contact our team for an inspection. Either visit our website or give us a call at (757) 347-8549 for more information!
