Benefits of an Energy Efficient HVAC Upgrade
There are a number of benefits home and business owners can expect to achieve by upgrading their HVAC systems with energy efficient alternatives. These include:
Boost Home Comfort
One of the primary benefits of a new heating or cooling unit is increased home comfort. By minimizing issues associated with running outdated or malfunctioning units, occupants can expect to enjoy a more comfortable, better conditioned, and evenly heated or cooled home.
Decrease Energy Bills
Today’s energy efficient heating, ventilation and air conditioning units are designed to run on less energy, meaning you can expect to significantly save on energy bills each month. By pairing an HVAC upgrade with another home performance upgrade, customers can expect their savings to increase even more.
The primary benefit of an efficient HVAC upgrade lies in energy savings. Conserve energy, reduce your carbon footprint and go green with a high-efficiency, low-energy heating or cooling unit!
Featured Service: Geothermal Heat Pumps
Ground Source (or Geothermal) Heat Pumps (GSHP) are over 45 percent more energy efficient than standard options. GSHPs circulate water or refrigerant through looped pipes, some which are located underground. These models extract heat from the ground for heating and deliver heat to the ground for cooling. Considered renewable energy, GSHPs can enhance the comfort of your home while saving energy. While initially more expensive to install than standard systems, GSHPs have a lifespan of of 25 years or more (with a lifespan of 50+ years for the underground piping). They are less expensive to maintain and operate, and typically save homeowners 30%-60% annually. With annual utility savings and local financing available, we’ll help you make the best investment in your home.
