These days, home and business owners alike are looking for ways to save on energy costs while doing their part to help protect the environment for future generations. However, many property owners don’t know the difference between energy conservation and energy efficiency. At Del-Air, we specialize in keeping you comfortable throughout the seasons by offering AC service in Tampa while lowering overall energy bills. We have outlined the difference between these two energy terms and how you can gain maximum energy savings:

The Difference Between Energy Conservation and Energy Efficiency

Energy conservation refers to behaviors used to reduce energy consumption in a home or business. Fortunately, homeowners can take steps to improve HVAC conservation during the hot summer months. For example, you could cut energy usage by turning off lights and fans when you leave a room and setting your thermostat at a lower temperature in the winter and a higher one in summer. Along with keeping exterior windows and doors closed, you should replace your AC filters regularly to ensure maximum efficiency. You can also reduce the amount of heat entering the home by purchasing sun-blocking shades and curtains. Finally, you should arrange for regular tune-ups to ensure your AC is running efficiently.

While energy conservation refers to behavioral changes, energy efficiency involves using energy more effectively at the technological level. Energy-efficient products aim to provide users with the same level of comfort and convenience while cutting costs and preserving the environment. For example, you can boost energy efficiency in your home by purchasing appliances, light bulbs, and other items with high Energy Star ratings such as AC units with a SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). The higher the SEER rating, the greater efficiency the AC unit has. By purchasing an AC unit with variable speed technology, the motor is able to run a different speeds so that the precise heating or cooling of a home is achieved. It actually senses the heat and humidity in the room and adjusts itself accordingly.

This was my first experience with Del-Air and they were prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on the same day for a maintenance visit, which I wasn’t expecting but very much appreciated. The office staff was pleasant and so was the technician that came out to service my air conditioners. Thanks…
