Making Your Home and A/C Unit More Energy Efficient
June 15, 2015 | Lauren
Summer has snuck up on Austin yet again! The days are getting longer, the sun is getting hotter, and everyone is trying to find ways to escape the infamous Texas heat without cranking up the A/C.
There are plenty ways to make your home more energy efficient on the inside, but we tend to forget about the outside. The hottest months of the year are on their way, and so are the highest energy bills. Here are a few All Year tips to help you protect your home from the scorching Austin sun:
Reduce the strain on your Air Conditioner by applying a reflective coating. This will help you save by decreasing the amount of heat coming into your home.
Keep your roof lasting longer. Reflective roofs not only reduce heat buildup, they also prevent the expansion and contraction that degrade roofs.
Replace the roof with an ENERGY STAR® label. It will save energy and help protect the environment through superior energy efficiency.
Upgrade your windows. Most of the heat that comes into your house actually comes in through the windows. Upgrading your home with Low-e windows will help reduce the temperature indoors because of the energy efficient glass that reflects the heat, which can ultimately improve the performance of your HVAC system!
