When it comes to saving money on your HVAC bill, especially during the hot Sacramento Summers, there’s a lot you can do.
The HVAC system in your home keeps things comfortable for you and your family throughout the year. But the hot Sacramento summers can really impact your utility bill if your AC isn’t efficient. Is your air conditioner not doing the job quite as well as it used to? Is your utility bill creeping up? If so, your AC unit’s efficiency might be the reason. Scheduling regular maintenance, and if you live in Roseville, getting rebates from the City of Roseville for doing so, is a smart way to boost the efficiency of your HVAC system and save money while you’re at it!
Keep Up With Maintenance
You may not even think about it, but your HVAC system needs regular maintenance, much like your car, to keep performing season after season. A money-saving tune-up in the spring and another one on your furnace at the beginning of the fall season can ensure you make the most of every part of your system. And you’ll likely save money on your HVAC bill.
Change Your Filters Often
It’s a simple but powerful step — clogged dirty filters block the normal airflow through your system. Routinely changing the filters can reduce your energy consumption by about 15%.
Check Utility Company Rebates

Invest in a Smart Thermostat
If you didn’t see it, check out my earlier blog post about the many advantages of getting a smart thermostat. Do you manually adjust the thermostat to change the indoor temperature? That habit causes your HVAC system to cycle on and off, wasting energy. Installing a smart thermostat will allow you to track your usage and make adjustments automatically. Absolute Comfort is happy to provide professional installations for this new technology. Check out our customer reviews and get started today!
Seal Those Gaps
As simple as it sounds, leaky windows and doors can be major causes of cool air loss in your home. Using weatherstripping will seal the cracks between doors and windows and help keep the cool air from escaping into the outside.
