How Your HVAC System Impacts Home Efficiency

How Your HVAC System Impacts Home Efficiency

Before you know it, ice and snow will be a distant memory, and instead you’ll be looking for ways to stay cool during the hot summer months.

Understanding the ins and outs of your home’s heating and cooling equipment can be an essential part of helping to insure your home is operating at maximum energy efficiency.

It’s estimated that the average American family spends over $2,000 on energy bills every year. Almost half of this amount is spent on heating and cooling costs alone.

By understanding how HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems heat and cool your home, it is easier to achieve a comfortable temperature without wasting too much energy.

Follow along with this WellHome infographic as it provides a visual lesson on the various components of an HVAC system so you can make informed choices about the heating and cooling of your home!

This infographic about HVAC heating and cooling provides great information. It is important to understand that home efficiency will require accurate HVAC elements for heating and cooling and their continuous maintaining.
