  1. Efficiency Boosting Tips

Improving the efficiency of your HVAC system not only enhances comfort but also saves you money on energy bills. Love and Care Heating and Air recommends the following tips:

  • Invest in a Programmable Thermostat: Set your thermostat to automatically adjust temperatures based on your schedule. This can significantly reduce energy consumption when you’re away from home or sleeping.

  • Seal Duct Leaks: Leaky ducts can lead to energy waste. Seal any visible leaks with duct tape or consider professional duct sealing services to enhance system efficiency.
