10 Super Important Tips for Heating and Cooling Ann Arbor Homes

Do you turn down your thermostat when you leave for work?

Is your furnace constantly running?

Did you know that every 24-hour period in which the heat is lowered by 1 degree can result in a 3 percent savings on your heating bill? Sometimes the smallest changes can make the most difference!

That’s why, when it comes to heating and cooling Ann Arbor homes, we think it’s worth paying attention to the details.

According to, if just one household in ten bought heating and cooling equipment that has earned the EnergyStar approval, we would prevent annual greenhouse gas emissions of 12 billion pounds, which is the same as eliminating 1.1 million cars on the road.
We’d like to share some super important tips that you can use to help regulate your heat and save you money, including:
  1. Turn down the thermostat by 10 degrees at night or when there is nobody home
  2. When you get a chill, instead of turning up the heat, grab a sweater
  3. Open curtains and/or blinds on a sunny day
  4. Adjust the airflow to rooms that are not in use by closing vents
  5. Circulate warm air with a fan
  6. Caulk around windows that may not be airtight
  7. Check to make sure your attic, walls, and floors are insulated
  8. Close the fireplace flue
  9. Service your HVAC system annually
  10. Replace your HVAC system approximately every 15 years
