Whether or not you’re ready for fall, cooler temperatures are right around the corner in Bessemer, Alabama. As you say goodbye to hot summer weather for another season, it’s the ideal time to lower your household energy consumption and save money at the same time. Find out how to maximize energy efficiency in the fall with HVAC maintenance, a heating upgrade, and sealing out the cold.
Schedule HVAC Maintenance
As fall weather arrives, the first thing you’ll want to do to get your HVAC system ready for the season is schedule HVAC maintenance. When you schedule a tuneup with the One Source Heating & Cooling team, we’ll inspect your HVAC system, check the wiring, recalibrate the system, replace the air filter, and much more before you switch from cooling to heating. We’ll also inform you if any minor issues need repairs before they become major problems, so you won’t have to deal with breakdowns later in the season.
Seal Windows and Doors
When cooler temperatures settle in, you’ll want to keep as much warm air inside your home as possible. To prevent warm air from leaking out or cool air from wafting in, take the time to seal leaks around door frames, window frames, and electrical outlets. Check your home’s insulation and supplement it as necessary. For even more energy savings, consider adding heavier curtains to your windows to prevent cold drafts from entering your home.
Invest in an Efficient Heating System
If your HVAC system is on its last legs, consider upgrading before the system breaks down when you need it most. Whether you’re in the market for a heat pump or a furnace, our team can recommend energy-efficient heating systems that keep your family cozy and warm without wasting energy. In fact, a new heating system could actually help you save on your heating bill every month.
