AC Maintenance: Does Closing HVAC Registers Reduce Utility Bills

AC Maintenance: Does Closing Your HVAC Registers Really Save Energy

Homeowners commonly try to save money on their utility bills by closing vents and shutting doors to unused or little-used rooms. If this space accounts for 10% of the total square footage, the misconception is that denying heat or air conditioning into the space will require less than 10% less energy. Whole-house mechanics work against this for several reasons. We will show you why and a way that you might accomplish these 10% energy savings.

Closing a space of your HVAC system will not give you the energy savings you seek. So what will make a difference in your utility bill? Try these two solutions.

Learn to use a programmable thermostat. The thermostat is the control switch for the HVAC system. Schedule temperature changes of 70 to 100 during both heating and cooling season for at least eight hours. These temperature changes can be scheduled overnight, during sleeping hours, and/or during the day, while the family is away at work or school. According to the Department of Energy, this measure can save 10% on your utility bill each month.1

Regularly scheduled AC maintenance is one of the most commonly overlooked steps in managing your utility consumption. Our technicians thoroughly inspect your AC system components to ensure they are in proper working order. In addition, a key component to AC Maintenance is changing your filter regularly.
