Running heat pumps using the stable temperature of geothermal sources (such as 20-feet underground) often saves energy, especially in extreme weather locales. Geothermal ground-source heat pumps are one of the most energy-efficient, environmentally-friendly and cost-effective space-conditioning systems available. About 70% of the energy used by a geothermal heat pump comes in the form of renewable energy from the ground.

Providing cooling only where needed, room air conditioners are less expensive to operate than central units, even though their efficiency is generally lower than that of central air conditioners. Look for an ENERGY STAR® certified unit.
ENERGY STAR® certified dryers use about 20 percent less energy than conventional models without sacrificing features or performance.
Dirty filters restrict the airflow of your heating and cooling system, making your system run more often which increases energy consumption and wear and tear on your system.
Refrigerant coils, located at the back and underneath, are designed to remove heat. When they're dirty, the refrigerator cycle runs longer and more often. Dirty coils can require as much as 25% more energy to function properly.
Whether leaving the house for a few hours or a few days, there is no better method for reducing costs for heating and/or cooling than simply shutting the system off.
Heated or cooled air escaping through doors and windows wastes a lot of energy! Make sure windows are completely closed and limit the amount of time outside doors are open. Plug air leaks with caulking, sealant or weather stripping to save 10% or more on your energy bill.
Blocked supply and return vents cause heating and cooling systems to work longer - wasting heating, cooling and fan energy. Regularly inspect air supply and return vents for any obstructions.
A smart thermostat is a Wi-Fi enabled device that automatically adjusts heating and cooling temperature settings in your home for optimal performance.
