Signs of spring are already beginning to peak through the winter weather in the Hickory, NC, area. Is your home ready for the spring season? Check out these spring energy saving tips from Canella to save on comfort when the weather warms.
Fire up the grill in Hickory, NC
When you cook indoors, keeping your home cool can be an uphill battle. Cooking produces large amounts of heat, and this can lead to higher energy bills during spring. On warm days, try cooking your favorite meals on the grill to keep your home cooler.
Keep air vents open
If you didn’t open them during winter, make sure your air vents are left open this spring. Closed vents impair the HVAC system’s efficiency and increase air pressure that can damage the system. Make sure all vents are open, and leave doors throughout your home open as well to promote air circulation.
Spring energy saving & cleaning
Spring cleaning can actually help lower your home cooling costs. Wipe away any dust from the air vent grills around your house. In addition, vacuuming the coils on the back of your refrigerator will enhance its performance and reduce its energy usage. Finally, throw out any old food that’s clogging the fridge; this will increase its efficiency.
