The key to an energy efficient home doesn’t end at a new HVAC system. In fact, your windows and doors are just as essential to maximizing your comfort and savings as a new, energy-efficient furnace or air conditioning system is—which is why we believe in the “whole house” approach to energy efficiency here at Clarke & Rush of Sacramento. If you’re on the fence about upgrading your windows and doors, consider the benefits you will enjoy almost immediately after they are installed.
Lower Energy Bills
Whole house energy efficiency is dependent on the quality of the doors and windows in your home. Old doors and windows that are not properly sealed or designed to block out the elements can place an additional strain on your heating and cooling unit, which will in turn increase your energy bills. By upgrading your windows and doors, you will lessen the load on your HVAC system and bring down your heating and cooling costs every month.
Energy-efficient windows and new replacement doors will help block out hot and cold outside air, meaning the inside of your home will be more comfortable. Additionally, new windows and doors will also help seal out allergy causing pollen and dust, which means you will be able to breathe easy inside your own home. Replacement windows and doors can even help block out sound pollution, making your home an island of peace and serenity.
More “Curb Appeal”
Even if you aren’t planning on selling your home any time soon, you should take every opportunity possible to increase your home’s curb appeal. When the time comes to put your home on the market, new windows and doors will help attract potential buyers and can even help fetch a higher price than you had originally planned on.

According to most estimates, as much as half of the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling. In other words, if your HVAC system is old or ill-maintained, you could be wasting loads of money each year. Depending on the age and condition of your air conditioning and heating system, you may not need to purchase a brand new unit. Instead, you can take steps to increase the efficiency of your HVAC system at home.
Change Your Air Filter
Checking your filter every month is the easiest way to improve the efficiency of your home’s HVAC system. If the filter looks dirty, clean it or change it, depending on the type of filter you have installed. At a minimum, change the filter every three months for optimal efficiency.
Install a Programmable Thermostat
If you are away from home for set periods each day, a programmable thermostat can help you save a considerable amount on your heating and cooling bills. Through proper use of pre-programmed settings, a programmable thermostat can net you approximately $180 each year in energy savings.
Have Your HVAC Equipment Serviced Annually
A tune-up for your car can improve its fuel efficiency, and a tune-up for your HVAC system can improve its energy efficiency. Have an air conditioning and heating repair company take a look at your HVAC system once per year and make any necessary adjustments and repairs.
Upgrade Your HVAC System
A new HVAC system is quite the investment, but it can quickly pay for itself if your heating and cooling system is more than 15 or 20 years old or in extremely bad shape. When shopping for new HVAC equipment, look for Energy Star qualified products and make sure that they are properly installed by a qualified HVAC company.
