Program Your Thermostat

Use a programmable thermostat to help reduce energy consumption and costs when you are sleeping or not at home. We recommend setting the thermostat back 5 degrees when no one is home or you are sleeping. According to the Canadian Office of Energy Efficiency (OEE), using a programmable thermostat properly can reduce your utility costs 10 – 15%.


Install a humidifier. Moist air feels warmer than dry air, so a humidifier run during the winter months can help you feel comfortable even though your thermostat is set to a lower temperature.

Change Your Filter

Change or clean your standard-type filter on a regular basis – as often as once a month may be required in some homes due to conditions within the home. Regular filter replacement helps your heating and cooling system operate at peak efficiency and improves indoor air quality.

Maximize Air Flow

Make sure your registers are open - and clear of obstructions and furniture - to allow for maximum output from your home comfort system. Closed or obstructed vents can create restrictions that disrupt and decrease the system’s airflow and efficiency - making it work harder and become less efficient.

Schedule Regular Maintenance On Your System

Contact a licensed and qualified HVAC contractor to perform semi-annual maintenance and service. Studies have shown that regularly scheduled maintenance can reduce your utility costs by up to 20%.
