How to Save $1,000 Per Year on Your Heating and Cooling Bills With PosiGen


If you’re living in one of the 50 states, then you know that no matter what time of year it is, it’s very likely that one or both of the seasons has had an impact on your heating and cooling bills. If you’re interested in ways to save money on these energy costs, here are some tips to get started (Zippia).


What Is Positive Pressure?


Positive pressure is when air flows into a room; negative pressure is when air flows out of a room. This distinction is important because it affects your energy costs, PosiGen CEO Thomas Neyhart, explains. Positive-pressure systems pull heated or cooled air from outside through filters and ducts in order to make your home comfortable—meaning you’re paying for every cubic foot of outside air that enters your home.


How Can I Tell If My Home Is Under-Vented?


One easy test you can do is to take a dollar bill and stick it in front of your vents. If you can see all of Abe’s head then your ducts are under-vented.


Why Are My Baseboard Heaters Hotter Than They Should Be?


According to PosiGen CEO, Thomas Neyhart, baseboard heaters can be a great way to keep your home warm and cozy—as long as they’re set at a comfortable temperature. Unfortunately, baseboard heaters can cost an extra $500 per year if they’re turned up too high. One major cause of overheated baseboards is that they can actually be harder to control than other types of heating (like ceiling fans). Often, you don’t even know you need to turn down your thermostat; it just happens. 


Are There Any Other Potential Savings?


Yes, there are other ways you can save money on your heating and cooling costs. Some people choose to install energy-efficient windows in their homes.
