Lovejoy Energy Savings In the Winter

Energy Savings

LoveJoy HVAC enjoys helping their customers in Lucas Texas and surrounding areas save money on their energy bills during the winter season. Here are a couple of hints to help you get through the winter months without breaking your wallet! If you are lucky enough to have an abundance of sunshine flow through your house, throwback your curtains during peak hours and let the sun shine in! As the sun disappears, close your drapes again to provide insulation and trap the heat inside.

Do you have a thermostat you can control via an app? If so, adjust your temperature settings accordingly so you are not heating your house when it is empty. Change the temperature an hour before you head home so the climate inside is comfortable upon your arrival.  This will have a huge impact on your power bill. If you live in a large house, and find that your family gathers in one room, for example the TV room in the evening, consider centralized heating.

This means minimizing the use of your central HVAC system and buying portable space heaters that can quickly heat up a room, instead of the entire house. This will have a positive impact on saving energy. However, always be sure to turn off the heaters when you leave the room unattended. Last of all, have lots of throws and blankets on hand to encourage people to relax and stay warm as they unwind in the evenings, this may allow you to keep your family comfortable, and keep the settings on your HVAC system on an energy saving mode.
