Trane Residential Shares 4 Tips to Make Your Home More Energy Efficient

Heading into the warmer months, it is important for homeowners to prepare for seasonal changes like increased temperatures and pollens floating in the air. Trane provides solutions to ensure every home is comfortable while being more efficient  and mindful of the planet.

1. Set your thermostat to the proper temperature

The U.S. Department of Energy recommends setting your thermostat as close as you can to the outdoor temperature to save money and energy. When leaving home for the day, or that weekend getaway, it is recommended that you turn up the thermostat, too. Since it can be challenging to remember to adjust the temperature,  Trane suggests installing a smart thermostat like the Trane Comfortlink II XL 824. It’s an easy-to-use, set-it-and-forget-it solution that can help reduce your energy expenses this spring – and year-round too. EnergyStar says homeowners can save as much as $100 a year on energy bills when installing a smart thermostat. Prices for the Comfortlink and other Trane products vary by location, visit to learn more about pricing.

2. Change your air filters regularly

Air filters control your home’s indoor air quality and can cause abnormally high utility bills if not replaced or cleaned on a regular basis. It’s recommended to change a disposable filter, or clean a reusable one, every 30 to 90 days. If you have pets or someone in your home suffers from allergies or asthma, consider changing them closer to every 30 days. Allowing dust and dirt to collect on the filter screen forces your system to work harder to move air through it and maintain your chosen temperature. This can result in premature replacements and repairs which can be costly. Changing air filters is a simple task that doesn’t require any tools, and Trane makes it even easier by delivering Trane® Filters powered by Filter Time right to your doorstep every month.

3. Change your ceiling fan direction

Changing the direction of your ceiling fans can help you get the most out of your HVAC and potentially save some energy. In the warmer months, ceiling fans should rotate counterclockwise at a high speed to help make a room feel cooler. In the cooler months, ceiling fans should rotate clockwise at a low speed to help circulate warm air. Maximizing circulation can create a more comfortable environment without adjusting your thermostat. 

4. Schedule seasonal maintenance

Dedicating time to seasonal maintenance can give you a head start on being prepared for warmer weather. Ensure your HVAC system is in top condition for the scalding Arizona summer by scheduling a spring checkup with your  local Trane Comfort Specialist. Lower those monthly energy bills by upgrading to a Trane XV20i Variable Speed Heat Pump with Trane Link. It might be time iIf your unit is more than 10 years old or isn’t keeping up with your cooling needs. This Energy Star-certified system could save you as much as 50 percent on your summer cooling bills. 

By following these tips, you can stay cool while making your home more energy-efficient and saving money on your utility bills. The Inflation Reduction Act has made HVAC home improvements even more beneficial by offering tax credits and rebates on qualifying heating and cooling technology.
