How to Increase Your Home’s Energy Efficiency

November 2, 2018

Whether we have an extreme heat wave, that’s bad enough to require our Seattle homeowners to crank up their air conditioner for days on end, or we’re experiencing an atypical cold snap where you rely on your heating system, the comfort of your home is as vital as its energy efficiency. Our experienced team of Brennan heating and cooling specialists are eager to help you have an energy efficient home without having to sacrifice comfort to do so.

Annual Seasonal Inspection and Maintenance Service

An annual preseason inspection will detect problems with your system before they require costly repairs. With our maintenance service, we’ll make sure that your coils don’t leak, and that there are no issues that might impede the efficiency of your heating or cooling systems – especially during the peak of the season.

Our team of experienced technicians will inspect and service:

  • Air Conditioners
  • Boilers
  • Conventional Water Heaters
  • Ductless Mini Splits/Heat Pumps
  • Furnaces
  • Heat Pumps
  • Tankless Water Heaters

Install a Programmable Smart Thermostat

Programmable thermostats give homeowners more control over the comfort of their homes. With a programmable thermostat, it is possible to adjust the temperature within the house so that the heat or air conditioning aren’t running unnecessarily when no one is home. A smart thermostat extends the capabilities of a programmable thermostat because it “learns” about the homeowner’s behaviors. Smart thermostats can also adjust the temperature according to conditions outside.

Replace or Clean HVAC and Furnace Filters Regularly

A simple way to improve the energy efficiency of your home’s heating and cooling systems is by choosing filters that trap as many pollutants and particles as possible. By preventing dust and other debris from escaping through your HVAC filter, you will eliminate a significant source of potential problems and one that prevents your HVAC system from functioning at its best.
