Energy Saving Tips

Trane Energy Tips

If your heating and cooling system is over 10 years old, you're probably cheating yourself out of energy and money. You could be paying 30-50% more in utility costs than you should be. We can help you lower those bills and make you more comfortable at the same time. Heating and cooling your home uses more energy dollars than any other system in your home. Typically, 44% of your utility bill goes for heating and cooling. You can save money and increase comfort by properly maintaining and upgrading your equipment.

An energy-efficient furnace or air conditioner alone won't have as great an impact on your energy bills as using the whole house approach. By combining proper equipment, upgrades and maintenance with appropriate thermostat settings, insulation and weatherization, you can cut your energy bills in half.

Heating Tips

•Set your thermostat as low as it is comfortable.
•Clean or replace your filters once a month.
•Clean registers as needed and make sure they're not blocked by furniture or carpeting.
•Use household fans wisely. Turn them off as soon as they've done their job.
•Keep drapes and shades open on south-facing windows during the heating season to allow sunlight to enter your home. Close them at night to reduce the chill.
•Close an unoccupied room and turn down the thermostat or zone to that room.
 

Cooling Tips

•Set your thermostat as high as it is comfortable.
•Clean or replace your filters once a month.
•Set the fan speed on high except in very humid weather. When it's humid, set the fan speed on low.
•Use ceiling fans to spread the cooled air more effectively.
•Don't place TVs or electrical appliances that generate heat near your thermostats.
•Plant trees or shrubs to shade air conditioning units but don't block the airflow.
