HVAC Energy Efficiency

You like to get the most out of everything you have. Whether it be your car, your home, or your belongings, you hold on until you’ve gotten your money’s worth, and then you hang onto it some more. You also understand that getting the most out of something requires care.

If you truly want to get the most out of your League City, Texas, home, you need to get the most out of its heart: the HVAC system. An energy-efficient HVAC system will not only give you the best bang for your buck, but it will also improve the comfort and quality of your home. Here are two crucial factors that affect HVAC efficiency.

System Size

When it comes to HVAC systems, size matters. If the system trying to cool your home is too small, you’ll never be comfortable, and the system will experience so much strain that it will probably quit early. A system that’s too large, however, will constantly short cycle, which wrecks energy efficiency and hikes utility costs. A system that’s fitted just right to the home’s load requirements will improve your energy efficiency considerably.

Heating and Cooling Habits

How you treat your HVAC system will ultimately determine how it treats you. We know it’s hot here, but if you’re pushing your air conditioner to keep your home at 65 degrees Fahrenheit, the strain will keep it from living out a full lifespan, and your home will probably never actually reach that temperature. Keeping your home as warm as comfortable during the summer will ensure your HVAC system will keep you cool for many hot summers to come.

These two factors only scratch the surface of HVAC energy efficiency. Everything from a dirty home to leaks around windows, attics, and doors can lower efficiency. If you take care of your home, you’ll enjoy the benefits of an energy-efficient HVAC system.
