HVAC Money Saving Tips

As the temperatures start to drop, many homeowners across the country are looking for ways to save on their heating and cooling bills. While some people may be tempted to crank up the heat, this can lead to uncomfortable temperatures in your home and higher energy bills. Comfort Hounds shares some tips on how to save some money, while also feeling comfortable in your home.

Comfort Hounds Tips

Here are a few tips on how you can save money on your heating and cooling bills without feeling uncomfortably hot or cold:

1. Install a programmable thermostat

A programmable thermostat can help you save money on your heating and cooling bills by automatically adjusting the temperature in your home based on a schedule that you create. For example, you can set the thermostat to lower the temperature during periods when you’re not at home or asleep.

2. Seal any leaks around your doors and windows

Sealing any leaks around your doors and windows will help keep warm air inside your home during the winter months and cool air inside during the summer months. You can use caulk or weatherstripping to seal any leaks around doors and windows.

3. Install insulation

Installing insulation in your attic or crawlspace is another effective way to keep warm air inside during the winter months and cool air inside during the summer months.

4. Close off unused rooms

Closing off unused rooms will help prevent heated or cooled air from escaping through doorways and hallways into other parts of your house.

5. Use fans instead of turning up the thermostat

Using fans instead of turning up the thermostat can help circulate conditioned air throughout your home without causing it to become too hot or cold.

6. Plant trees

Planting trees in front of your home can help shade it from the sun during the summer months and keep it warm during the winter months.

As a new homeowner, my HVAC system needed help. The AC, duct-work, and furnace were all breaking down. Rob and his team at Comfort Hounds came out and fixed everything.- The AC works better and doesn't have to run as often.- The ducts now have dampers so the heat and air spread more evenly throughout the house.- The furnace heats our house faster and easier than before.- There are no more big swings in temperature.I could go on, but the point is that our HVAC system is now running properly thanks to Comfort Hounds.Next is the price, HVAC repair is always expensive, but Comfort Hounds has the most competitive pricing out of the 4 other HVAC companies I've used in the past.Lastly, Rob and his team were patient with us. They stayed well past the allotted time to fix our HVAC system. They spent time with us explaining how we could keep our system running well and how to save money on our electricity bill. They never rushed us despite having other appointments to make.I will continue using Rob and his team for their skills, price, and patience. I highly recommend them.

Great company-friendly-professional-timely. They have been maintaining my hvac for two years. Quick to return calls/texts and provide service. Old system finally needed replacement and they were able to do so quickly and provide financing that met my budget requirements.

Quick call back, same day service for my broken AC. Rob broke down pros and cons of repair vs replacing for my unit and went the extra mile to be sure I had the right system size and HVAC coil to match my heat pump and my sq footage for my house. He also did some maintenance and extra work on issues when installing the new system to be sure it could work at full capacity.Great communication and didn't treat me different being a female. I'll definitely be returning!

I had an excellent experience with comfort hounds. My AC had gone out and was getting uncomfortably hot in the house. I have called several different companies and nobody had an appointments for days. Then I noticed comfort hounds said they were open after hours and within 20 minutes of my call they were here working on my air conditioning and had it repaired and working at 7:00 in the evening. I was really impressed with their quick and courteous service. I went ahead and signed up for the twice a year maintenance check so that I don't end up in an emergency situation again.

Really happy I went with these guys. My HVAC went out and they were able to come diagnose the problem very quickly. While they had the parts on the truck and could do the repair same day I opted to replace my system. Rob was very knowledgeable of his products and what would work best for my home and able to give me a quote within 24 hours. Rob called to check on us after a particularly cold Sunday night to see if we needed space heaters or anything, super thoughtful. The new system 100% solves the problems I had with the old system - my upstairs is finally warm.Definitely would recommend to a friend.
