What does your electric bill normally run? Is it consistent? Does it seem high? Your HVAC system could be the culprit!
First thing we recommend is have a licensed contractor come out and take a look at your unit. There are a lot of things that could be causing it to use more energy than normal: 1) Your ductwork could be old and leaking, 2) Your filters need changing, 3) The blower is no longer working, 4) Your unit is just plain old and not as efficient as newer models and so on and so on.
Let the professionals take a look. See if your electric company is offering any kind of incentive or rebate for upgrading to a newer model. Ask if the HVAC contractor has any rebates as well. These steps alone could save you hundreds and maybe a thousand on your installation and equipment. After installation you should see a significant decrease in your bill. Sometimes, your electric company will actually give you credit on your bills when you upgrade your equipment.
Spend a little to save a lot in the long run. You won’t be sorry!
