If you haven't put any thought into energy saving methods, you're probably overspending!
Here in North Texas, where sunshine dominates our skies, it's very easy to overspend on our energy bills just to keep cool. Milestone believes you should be spending less on cooling your home and more on things you actually enjoy.
Here's What You Can Do
First things first - make sure your home is sealed! When air has a way to escape your walls, your A/C has to run more often to make up for the loss of cool air. Spending a little money on caulk to seal your windows and doors will save you so much more in the long run.
Proper insulation in your attic will also help trap the air in your home, especially warm air in the winter. Our expert HVAC technicians can install in your attic and are trained to help save you money!
Small Changes Add Up!
• Smart Thermostat - Milestone can also install a smart thermostat in your home to help save money. This works by cooling your home on your schedule as well as a lot of mobile features! No more wasting money cooling an empty home during the day! Find out more
• Air Filters - Your air filter should be replaced regularly. A dirty air filter will restrict air flow and cause your A/C to work harder. When your A/C has to work harder so does your wallet.
• Fan Usage - This may be a no-brainer, but using a fan can be really effective in saving money on energy. In the warmer months, make sure your fans are spining counter-clockwise. This will cause a cool, downward airflow. Fans should spin clockwise in the winter to redistribute warm air throughout the room.
• Tuned Up System - Just like a car, your cooling and heating units need to be tuned up to keep them running like new. This should be done at least once a year per unit. Lucky for you, at a low price Milestone offers two tune-ups a year through our Milestone Annual Maintenance Plan!
