1. Check your appliances for energy efficiency.

Are your appliances using up a lot of energy? Can you make them more efficient?

There are a few things you can do to check the efficiency of your appliances and see if you can make them more energy efficient.

First, look at the wattage of your appliances. Are they using a lot of energy? If so, you may want to consider upgrading to a more energy-efficient model.

Second, make sure your appliances are turned off when they're not in use.

The heating and cooling system in your home relies on air ducts and seals to distribute air efficiently.

However, if the ducts and seals are not in good condition, your system may not work as efficiently.

To check your home’s air ducts and seals, first determine which systems are used for heating and cooling. Typically, these systems use ducts and seals to distribute air. Once you have identified the systems, use the following tips to check them for signs of wear:


5. Change your air filters regularly.

If you want to keep your home’s air quality high and your HVAC system running efficiently, it’s important to change your air filters regularly. Depending on the type of filter you have, you should change it anywhere from once a month to once every few months.

If you have allergies or respiratory issues, you may want to change your filters more often. And if you have pets, their fur can clog up filters quickly, so you may need to change them more often as well.

When you change your air filters, be sure to check the size and make sure you are getting the right type of filter for your House
