How to Lower Your Energy Bills
To understand how to save energy in your Utah home, you must know where you are losing it.
A home energy audit can help you understand where and how you use energy at home. It locates energy losses and offers actions you can take to fix them.
Although a home audit is just one way to save money on utility bills, it is the foundation for making energy-efficient upgrades in your Sandy home. It helps you identify priority improvements.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) says you can save up to 30 percent on energy bills by following through on recommended efficiency upgrades in your home energy audit.
Our qualified professionals at Just Right Heating & Cooling thoroughly assess homes throughout Sandy and nearby communities to pinpoint where our customers can save money on their energy bills.
Call us if you notice your utility bills are higher than usual. We can determine if your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment is at the root of the problem or if other issues, such as leaky ductwork, have caused energy loss.
Smart Thermostats Save Energy
Any home with a standard wall-mounted thermostat will reap energy savings by trading up to a programmable or smart thermostat.
Saving money on heating and cooling starts with precise temperature control. With a programmable thermostat, you plan the exact times the indoor temperature will increase or decrease throughout the day.
If you plan to be away from home for several hours each day, you might program a temperature change to limit how often your HVAC system kicks on to cool or heat the unoccupied space. You might dial back the thermostat at night in the winter when you are snug and warm in bed and program it to increase the heat when you wake up.
You can adjust temperatures on a smart thermostat with an app downloaded to your smartphone or another mobile device. Changing thermostat settings becomes more convenient when you can do it anywhere inside or outside your home.
A smart thermostat takes energy savings even further by learning when to change the temperature based on your home habits and behavioral patterns.
Let our experts at Just Right Heating & Cooling install a smart or programmable thermostat for your Sandy home. You will begin saving money in no time.
Other Ways to Save Energy
- Tune up heating and cooling equipment annually. Maintain your furnace in the fall and your air conditioner in the spring. Give your heat pump a little TLC twice a year. Preventative maintenance improves system efficiency, saving money on energy bills.
- Repair leaky ductwork. Hot or cool air can escape through cracks and holes in air ducts and end up in your attic, crawlspace, or basement instead of exiting from air vents throughout your home.
- Add insulation to the attic and walls in your home to cold and hot air out. Insulating your water heater can help save on utility bills too.
