We’re all looking to save some extra money and energy, especially after the expensive hype of the holiday season. You can do just that beginning with your own HVAC system! These tips are a good place to start.

1. You can save 5% on your AC costs by replacing the air filter once a month! Check your filters (as they may not need to be replaced quite this often) and see when they should be replaced, and change them out as necessary. So much dust and junk gets caught in the filter, and once it has reached it junk-catching potential it just doesn’t work as effectively as it should. By replacing your filter appropriately, you can save yourself some cash!

2. Caulking air leaks on doors and windows can reduce energy costs by 15-30%! This can save you some serious cash, folks. If your windows and doors are leaking cold air in to your home, and allowing warm air to escape (and vice versa for warmer seasons) your HVAC system works overtime to keep your home at the temperature you prefer. Keep the air you want inside your home IN, and keep the elements OUT by sealing your home effectively – you and your wallet will be glad you did.

And of course, if you have any questions at all call Gopher Heating today at 952-890-3466 (Twin Cities) or (507) 665-3300 (Le Sueur, MN). We’re always happy to help!
