Energy Saving Tips in Edmonton


One of the hardest things to do at home is to monitor energy consumption. Sure, there is no shortage of tools and products out there that are meant to make it easier to monitor energy consumption, but the truth of the matter is that it's not easy to always be turning off switches, unplugging appliances, and performing other actions that help save energy.

What some people aren't aware of, though, is that there are some great, easy ways to conserve energy and a lot of it has to do with properly controlling your use of your home air quality systems. Monitoring and controlling your use of Edmonton air conditioning systems, heating systems, and HVAC systems is one of the easiest and most convenient ways of saving energy. Here are some tips that you can use for some extra savings at home:

Make sure that you purchase Energy Star-certified products

Whenever you go shopping for a new appliance, always make sure to look for Energy Star certification. Products that are certified for Energy Star make use of much less energy that non-certified products. It is extremely important to only choose air quality systems that are Energy Star certified to ensure that, even when you do use them, they will help in saving energy.

Know when to shut off certain systems

If you make use of separate systems for your heating and air conditioning, the best way to save energy is to turn off certain systems when they aren't in need. For example, you may want to turn off your air conditioner during the winter and turn off your furnace during the summer. If you make use of air purifying systems, you should make sure to turn off the units after they have run long enough to completely clean the air in the room.
