When the summer is far in the rearview, it’s time to turn your attention toward the cooler fall weather. Reducing energy usage and keeping the spirit of the holiday season are both easy with these fall energy-saving tips for your Midlothian, Texas, home.

Don’t Trick Your HVAC System

Part of the fun of Halloween is trick-or-treating. Whether you’re handing out candy or gathering it for yourself, you never know what you’ll get.

That’s exactly what you don’t want to do with your HVAC system. When you take a gamble on your HVAC system by not getting it inspected or serviced, you could be throwing energy and money out the window.

Treat Your Home to Tasty Heat

Although Midlothian has mild autumn months compared to the rest of the country, it still can get nippy. That’s when a little creative thinking and a love of good food goes a long way. Reap the benefits of your culinary prowess twice!

Instead of blasting the heat, fire up the stove or oven. Family isn’t the only thing that warms the house during Thanksgiving. The heat given off by these two appliances warms the room, minimizing energy usage while keeping you comfortable.

Install a Smart Thermostat

From the standpoint of tradition, older is often better. You might bring out beautiful heirlooms and other decorations during the holiday season.

Outdated thermostats aren’t nearly as cool. These devices often leave you feeling chilly, because they’re wildly inefficient. Thankfully, a smart or a programmable thermostat can give you the comfort you need.

Whether you’re entertaining guests or chilling out on the couch, you shouldn’t have to think about wasting energy. By following these tips and calling Freedom Heating and Air for your tuneup and installation needs, you’ll maximize energy usage. Contact us today at 214-306-8456.
