Whole-House Energy Savings Tips For Corpus Christi Homeowners

March 21, 2011 | Blog

With ever-rising energy costs and concerns about the environment, saving energy is more important now than ever. Thankfully, you can make a significant difference in the amount of energy your home consumes, and you can do so without sacrificing comfort. 

Here are some energy-saving tips for Corpus Christi homeowners that could make a significant difference in your utility bills.

Have an AC-Enhancer installed.

The AC-Enhancer increases the efficiency and dehumidification capacity of your air conditioning system. This will reduce the humidity level in your home during the cooling months, which lets you feel more comfortable at a warmer temperature.  It also helps your air conditioner start more efficiently. Both of these things can save you big money on your cooling bills.

Add insulation.

Having your home properly insulated and sealed can make a big difference in your overall energy consumption. According to Energy Star, adding insulation is often the most cost-effective step you can take to save energy. Using both fiberglass insulation and a radiant barrier will keep your house cooler during those hot Corpus Christi summers, meaning your air conditioner won’t have to work as long or as hard.

Consider replacing your air conditioner and furnace.

Newer air conditioners and heaters are more efficient than those from ten years ago, especially if you buy a higher-efficiency Energy Star unit. Energy savings of up to 20 percent are possible with these new units when correctly installed.

Have your ducts sealed.

Air leaking out through the ducts cuts down on your air conditioner or heater’s efficiency, since not all of the conditioned air makes it into all rooms of your house. Having your air ducts professionally sealed can produce some significant energy savings.

Install a programmable thermostat.

You probably know that setting your thermostat a few degrees warmer in the summer (or cooler in the winter) can save you money on your cooling and heating bills. You can save even more by switching to a programmable thermostat. Programmable thermostats automatically cut back on the air conditioning or heating during times they’re not really needed, such as when you are away from the house at work. The thermostat then returns the temperature to a comfortable level before you return.  Ask us about the optimum set-back amounts. 

Consult the experts.

Great Company

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
