HVAC Energy Saving Fort Wayne Indiana

The summer season is about to change and it’s time to start thinking about HVAC maintenance once again.  Poorman’s Heating and Air Conditioning out of Fort Wayne, Indiana wants to help you prepare for the fall and winter months by helping you save money on your heating bill.

You may not know this, but an average household’s heating and cooling systems make up for 43% of the entire home’s energy use.   You may be top notch at turning off all the lights when you leave the house, but that HVAC system is still running and it could be running up your bill too. Here are some simple and helpful tips to help cut back on your energy bill:

  • Adjust the thermostat when the house is empty.  There’s no need to be keeping an unoccupied home warm. You can also plop an extra blanket on the bed and lower the thermostat when everyone is sleeping.  Even a degree or two can make a difference.
  • Change filters regularly.  Units that become clogged have to work even harder to perform.  Schedule your maintenance appointments ahead of time to ensure that you’re not forgetting to give your unit the attention it needs.
  • Seal up your doors and windows.  A crazy amount of heat can escape from the smallest crack in the windows or doors.
  • Lastly, check with your local utility provider to see if they in fact offer discounts when you cut back on your usage during the peak usage months.

If you’d like to set up a maintenance visit, call Poorman’s Heating and Air Conditioning (260.422.3534).  Emergency services are available 24/7.
