As energy costs continue to rise (along with everything else) it is important to try to save money whenever and wherever possible in our daily lives. For guidance on the best ways to save on your home heating requirements and for hot water tank service in Mill Creek, contact the professional technicians at Complete Mechanical. There are four typical issues that home and business owners can address which can save on your heating bill over the colder months this winter:
- Do not immediately and automatically turn up the thermostat when the temperature drops. It is not necessary and wastes energy.
- Turning up dial on the thermostat to warm a room or the whole building more quickly does not work. Your temperature control system only affects the temperature, not the speed at which it warms.
- Maintaining a steady lower temperature is better than constantly adjusting the thermostat higher and lower. Utilizing a programmable thermostat is the best option as it can be set for specific temperatures at certain times of the day and night when it will be most effective.
- Leaving a hot water tank on all day when no one is using it wastes energy. It does not take a long period of time to generate hot water so flipping the switch an hour or so before use is sufficient. A tankless water heater is an excellent option for this purpose as water is heated on demand.
It is essential to schedule hot water tank service prior to the colder winter months to ensure that your system is working effectively and will continue to run throughout the entire season with no unexpected mechanical issues or complete failure.
