The Benefit of Automation
For further savings, consider a zoned system and programmable thermostat. This allows you to regulate the temperature in different parts of the house. If you live in a two-story house and spend most of your time downstairs during the day, you can switch off or lower the temperature upstairs. While at work, you can switch the HVAC off during the day and set it to switch it back on when you’re about to leave for home. Not only does this reduce your electric bill but also means less wear and tear on the unit, saving money on maintenance and repairs.
Install the Right Type of System
There are two types of HVAC systems: a split system and a packaged unit. Opt for a split system. A split system puts the compressor and condenser outside and the evaporator and furnace or heat pump inside. A packaged unit combines everything in one outdoor unit. You may be tempted to choose the packaged unit because it’s smaller and cheaper to install but the split system is more energy-efficient. They come with SEER ratings between 13 and 25 compared to 10 to 18 for packaged units.
