Energy bills are constantly a concern for homeowners.
Each season brings ups and downs in the energy we use and costs we incur.
How does weather affect your spending? During the summer, your cooling needs will increase as the heat rises. During the summer season in sunny California, some days can be brutal. Especially if your home is large, cooling costs can skyrocket. You can expect your heating equipment to kick on during extreme weather.

There are steps you can take to ensure that these changes in weather will have as little impact as possible. Here are some tips for controlling your energy bills. Get your HVAC equipment checked by a professional technician to ensure its efficiency and effectiveness. Change each system’s air filter to make sure it isn’t clogged and can handle the changes in weather. Heat or cool only occupied areas of your home with a zoning system. In most cases, gas is cheaper than electric appliances. Seal any air leaks around your doors and windows to weatherproof your home.
