With Titan Heating and Cooling you may save money and increase your comfort level by properly maintaining and upgrading your equipment. But remember, an energy-efficient furnace by itself will not have as great of an impact on your energy bills as using the whole house approach. By combining proper equipment maintenance and upgrades with recommended insulation, air sealing, and thermostat settings, you could cut your energy use for heating and cooling and reduce environmental emissions from 20%-50%.
Titan Heating and Cooling Tips:
Set your programmable thermostat at the minimum comfortably in the winter and at maximum comfortably in the summer, and, depending on the season, raise or lower the set point when you're sleeping or away from your house.
Clean or replace the filters on furnaces and air conditioners once a month or as recommended.
Clean warm-air registers, baseboard heaters, and radiators as it is needed; make sure they're not blocked by furniture, carpeting, or any drapes.
Eliminate trapped air from hot-water radiators once or twice each season; if unsure about how to perform this task, be sure to contact a professional.
Place heat-resistant radiator reflectors between exterior walls and also the radiators.
Turn off kitchen, bath, and other exhaust fans within 20 minutes after you're finished cooking or bathing; when replacing exhaust fans, consider installing high-efficiency, low-noise models.
During winter, keep the draperies and shades on the south-facing windows open during the day to allow the sunlight to enter your home and closed at night to reduce the chill you may feel from the cold windows.
During summer, keep the window coverings closed during the day to block the sun's heat from getting into the house.
Titan Long-Term Savings Tips:
Select energy-efficient products when you're buying new heating and cooling equipment.
For furnaces, look for a high Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating. The national minimum is 78% AFUE, but there are some models on the market that exceed 90% AFUE. For air conditioners, look for a high Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER). The current minimum is 13 SEER for central air conditioners.
