With bitter cold winters and scorching summers, the cost of heating and cooling in Batavia makes up the biggest component of a household energy bill. In many cases, the cause is an inefficient system. The more efficient system is, the less it costs to operate, which translates to a drop in your total energy bill.
If you are currently having a new home constructed, or you are preparing to replace your existing heating and cooling system, this is the ideal time to consider new technological innovations that are available, the costs of various systems, and their energy efficiency. When you are reviewing what is available, focus on energy efficiency. The most efficient equipment may cost a little more up-front, but you can anticipate getting this added cost back many times over through a reduction in operating costs.
- All new heating and cooling equipment carry information on the label, including the energy consumption. When you pay heed to this information, you can quickly compare products. This type of information is a legal requirement and is rigorously enforced by the FTC.
- The Energy Star label indicates that the equipment has been certified by the EPA and the DOE to meet their standards for energy efficiency.
As well as efficiency, there are other places where energy is wasted. It is well worth your while to undertake an energy audit of your home. In many cases, a company that is involved in service, repair, and maintenance of heating and cooling in Batavia can perform the assessment. You may be surprised just how much energy is wasted due to air leaks throughout your home. Air distribution ducting often leaks and there may be insufficient insulation in the attic. Once the results of the audit are known, take steps to correct the deficiencies, the results will show up on your next energy bill.
