Why not celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this year by going green with your HVAC system? Whether you want to save green money or go green to protect the environment, the HVAC experts have tips to help you achieve your goals. Keep reading for three top HVAC tips to ring in St. Patrick’s Day right.

#1: Change Your System’s Air Filter

Improving the energy efficiency of your HVAC system will save you money and is kinder to the environment. A dirty air filter decreases energy efficiency, making your system work harder than it should to control the climate in your home. When your system needs more energy to run, it increases the release of greenhouse gasses that are dangerous to the environment—not to mention it causes you to spend more money on your energy bill.

Most HVAC experts recommend changing your air filter every three months for best results. If you have pets in the home, you may need to change the filter more frequently.

#2: Upgrade to a Programmable Thermostat

A programmable, or “smart” thermostat is a great way to go green! A programmable thermostat reduces energy usage and saves you money by automatically adjusting temperatures when you’re away. It provides a customized schedule of consistent heating and cooling according to your preference and frees you from having to remember to adjust your thermostat every time you come or go. Many programmable thermostats also come with a reporting feature, so you can easily monitor energy usage.

Programmable thermostats can be included with new HVAC installations and may also be installed to optimize your home’s existing HVAC system.
