Making a heating and air conditioning system work for the family is a great way to cut costs, reduce your carbon footprint, and keep the home more comfortable.

  • Start by installing a programmable thermostat that will keep the house at a set temperature throughout the day when no one is home. This means you will no longer forget to turn the heat or air down just before leaving and could save hundreds of dollars in the process.
  • Replace peeling or rigid weather stripping around all doors and windows. Most weather stripping has a five to ten year warranty, but depending on how much wear and tear it receives it may not last that long. It is easiest to go ahead and replace as much as you can at once. Also consider adding door sweeps to every exterior door to prevent floor drafts. Since heat rises, floors can feel chilly to begin with. Door sweeps will prevent a draft from blowing across the floor
  • Next, replace mini blinds and sheer or light colored curtains with heavy darker curtains. There are many options available at a reasonable price that are energy efficient and reduce air temperature exchanges with the outside world. This means less heat is required to warm up a room in the winter and less AC in the warmer months.
