Get Better Efficiency from Your HVAC System

It’s time to reassess the way you use energy for heating and cooling your home. Temperatures will drop quickly sooner than you know it, and you’ll notice a steady spike in your monthly bills as time goes on. Your heating system may seem to be functioning okay, but small issues within the system and around your home can have a major effect on your bills.

If you’re looking for better efficiency from your home comfort system, it starts with a home audit. Technicians will run tests and let you know what you can do to save money on your monthly bills. Learn more in the guide below, and call us today to schedule your energy audit.

The Tests

There are several things that a technician may do to discover why your bills are higher than they need to be. Check out just a few examples of what we do at Boehmer Heating & Cooling:

  • Blower Door Test – A blower door test measures airflow and air pressure throughout the home to help technicians discover where air may be leaking in the home—around windows or doors or through other holes in the home.
  • Insulation Check – Technicians will make sure there is adequate insulation to slow heat exchange throughout the home.
  • Visual Inspection – Taking a look at appliances, your home’s exterior, and your utility bills could help technicians to find out what’s going on.
  • Heating and Cooling Inspection – A thorough check of your heating and cooling systems can allow a technician to determine whether your systems need repair or replacement to run smoothly and efficiently.

What Comes Next

An energy audit helps you to find out what you can do to save money on monthly bills while helping the environment. After all of these tests, a technician will sit down with you to discuss next steps. You may need more insulation, you might need to take better care of your heater and your air filter, and/or you might need to seal up some air leaks or even air duct leakage. Whatever it is, it will help your comfort systems to operate with maximum efficiency.
