I talked with our aunt about electricity bills in our beach house since I still use an electric furnace.
She uses a propane furnace & still feels that an electric furnace is a luxurious thing.
I argued that the gas price had also gone high, so pretty much everyone needs to figure out how to make their heating device more energy efficient. That’s how I ended up explaining what I’ve done in consultation with our Heating & Air Conditioning serviceman. The first & most obvious has been keeping up with furnace service, ensuring that the electric heat pump retains its efficiency at all times. The Heating & Air Conditioning professional explained that if I neglected routine servicing, it would labor harder to heat the space, hence using more energy, however we also installed a programmable wireless temperature control, making it simple to keep the home’s un-even temperatures at ideal un-even temperatures throughout the year. With the temperature control, I can switch it off when I’m away from home, so the heating machine does not need to run unnecessarily. The heating worker had also commanded that I use a high-quality HEPA filter because it would make air conditioning system cheaper by controlling the fan speed, which would translate to lower energy consumption. I knew talking about these things without evidence would not convince our aunt, so I had proof of our bills from various months ago. My bills were lower than hers, & where there was a spike, they reMained lower than what she spent on gas. She was convinced, & that’s how the two of us ended up going to see the local Heating & Air Conditioning corporation so that she could consult on what needed to be done for her furnace to be more efficient. She just got an upgrade done by the Heating & Air Conditioning corporation, who upgraded her furnace to a hybrid with an electric function.
