Heating and cooling costs can add up in your Sarasota, Florida, home, but luckily small changes can offer big savings. You don’t have to do anything drastic or incur a lot of expenses to see reduced spending on your HVAC costs and energy bills.

Change Your Air Filter

This small part of your HVAC system is a major contributor to high energy bills and poor indoor air quality if not changed regularly. When your filter gets clogged, it makes your HVAC system work harder costing you more money. It also blows dust and dirt into your home. Changing your air filter is easy and affordable. By regularly monitoring your air filter, you can help to keep your family healthy and save on repairs and energy bills in the process.

Preventive Maintenance

This small investment could offer significant savings on both your HVAC system and your home resale value. A preventive maintenance agreement provides a full-service inspection of your HVAC system to keep it operating at top performance, and could save you money on your energy bills. Prospective buyers also like to see that your HVAC system has been maintained so that they won’t have to worry about another costly investment soon after buying the home.

End of Season Opportunities

If you can wait until the off-season to buy your new HVAC system, you could see meaningful savings. Rebates are sometimes available at the end of summer or winter, and prices may also be lower during the off-season. Your contractor is also not as busy in the offseason, and you may see some further savings or discounts during that time. Be careful, however, not to push your HVAC system too long if you really need a new one. High utility bills or emergency maintenance could offset those savings if your HVAC system is inefficient.
