Home Upgrades that Save Money

Thinking about making energy-efficient upgrades to your home? We can’t think of a better way to help you put more money away and lower those shockingly high energy bills! But with endless types of solutions out there to help you conserve energy, how do you know which ones are worth it?

As your San Antonio HVAC professional, we’ve put together a quick list of home upgrades that you’ll be glad you took advantage of:


Insulation. Insulating the problem areas in your home can significantly reduce energy costs. This includes the attic, basement, and even that office space that never seems to heat or cool so easily. So if you feel that one spot in your home is warmer or cooler than all the other areas, consider insulating the room to save big on your monthly bills.

Seal Air Leaks. One of the most cost-effective ways to cut your HVAC costs is to seal up air leaks in your home. In other words, check the caulking and weatherstripping in your home and be sure that no warm or cool air is creeping through. You can find out whether or not you need to seal air leaks by doing a simple hand test (walk around the home and feel for drafts around your window frames and doors).

Zoning System. Fighting over the temperature in your home can lead you to crank the heat and lower it too often. The result? Wasted energy. Instead of wasting unnecessary energy, install a zoning system to boost your comfort levels and save you money.

Of course, the best home upgrade for your home is making sure you have a high efficient HVAC system.
