Prices are on the rise across New Jersey, including energy costs, which are up more than 11% in the last month alone! Many homeowners in South Jersey are looking for ways to lower energy bills and save money, and we’re here to help.
Energy efficiency upgrades and services are one of the smartest long-term ways to see savings and avoid huge increases in monthly expenses when the price to heat and cool your home rises. Here are some examples of ways you can save this year with Bovio Rubino Service.
1. Preventative HVAC Maintenance
You might be thinking, “Why would I pay for an HVAC tune-up if there doesn’t seem to be anything wrong with my heating and cooling and I’m trying to save money?”
But actually, a little upfront investment can lead to real savings. Regular maintenance visits for your heating and cooling systems keep them running as efficiently as possible, helping you avoid inconvenient breakdowns (as well as emergency service charges), and extend the lifespan of your equipment. We’ve seen homeowners skip tune-ups trying to save a few bucks, only to pay far more in AC repair when they later experienced a breakdown that a tune-up would have helped prevent.
2. HVAC Replacement & Heat Pump Upgrades
If there’s warm air coming out of the vents in the winter and cool air in the summer, many homeowners assume everything is fine with their HVAC system. But older units can be very energy inefficient, so even if they’re running, you could be paying more than you need to.
There are a few different ways to upgrade your HVAC system and save money on monthly energy bills. With new heating installation or a central AC upgrade, your replacement unit is likely to be more efficient than your existing one, especially if it’s older. For example, if your existing furnace has an 80% efficiency rating, but you upgrade to a new unit with a 95% efficiency, you’ll save, on average, close to $1,300 over the lifetime of the furnace.
But for additional savings, heat pumps and ductless mini splits are even more energy efficient and offer a variety of convenient installation options as well.
3. Home Energy Audits & Insulation Upgrades
Even the most efficiently running HVAC system will still waste energy if your home isn’t properly insulated and weatherized. A home energy audit is the best place to start, as it will help you find areas of your home that needs additional insulation or weatherization and air sealing, so you don’t pay for upgrades you don’t need. Insulating and air sealing can lower your New Jersey heating and cooling costs by nearly 20% every year!
