You may not be able to cut your energy bills completely, but you can reduce your energy bill each month. If you would like to know more, or if you are ready to reduce your monthly energy spending, check out these three tips to help you save money on energy.

1. Consider a Ductless HVAC System

Your HVAC system uses a lot of energy, so when it is poorly maintained and becomes inefficient, it can increase your energy bills. One way to reduce energy spending is to boost your HVAC system's efficiency. Many HVAC systems are forced-air systems, which rely on ducts. However, those ducts become a huge energy drain if they aren't properly maintained, installed, and cleaned.

Holes and gaps can allow heated or cooled air to escape before it reaches your living area, which makes your system less effective at heating the house. If dust and debris build up in the ductwork, it can spread it to the rest of your home. In addition, however, the clogged ducts force the system to work harder to pump air.

A ductless system, however, is a great alternative to forced-air HVAC systems. Since there is no ductwork to transport the heated and cooled air, these systems can have a higher SEER rating. Plus, since they don’t have ducts, you don't need to worry about clogs.

Another benefit of a ductless system is flexibility. If you live with other people, you've probably run into the issue of someone being hot while you were cold. With a ductless system, you can heat each room or zone differently, so you can stay nice and toasty while someone else’s room is cool and comfy for them.

2. Maintain Your Existing HVAC System

While HVAC systems are designed to last for many years, they can last for longer with regular maintenance. Maintenance ensures that your HVAC system has no major issues that can interfere with efficiency and that your system works at its best. With a well-performing HVAC system, you can enjoy optimal energy costs, as your HVAC system doesn’t have to overwork to keep your home comfortable.

Some things that maintenance consists of filter replacement, inspection, and tune-ups.

Depending on the unit you have and the type of filter you want to use, you might need to replace your filter anywhere from every month to every six months. The filter is an important part of the system, as it captures all contaminants and purifies incoming air. However, the filter can clog with captured debris, which necessitates its replacement. Otherwise, you might end up paying more in energy bills and eventually HVAC replacement.

Inspections and tune-ups allow professional technicians to look over your HVAC system, clean up coils, lubricate parts, ensure all components work well, and replace any worn-out pieces. By doing these things, HVAC experts can help your energy costs stay low for longer.

3. Repair Major Appliances

Major appliances like refrigerators, washing machines, dishwashers, and dryers use a lot of energy to work. Refrigerators run nearly constantly to keep food cold. When these machines wear out, they can become energy-inefficient.

Regular repairs keep these systems efficient and prevent the early replacement of these expensive appliances. Many repair technicians will also provide a warranty for the repairs so you may not have to pay for a future issue if it's covered under the warranty.

You may not be able to reduce your energy bills to zero, but you can drop them significantly. One way to do this is to switch to a ductless HVAC system, but you may also want to upgrade your water tank or repair your other appliances.
