Benefits of an Energy-Efficient HVAC System
An energy-efficient HVAC system has many benefits. It can:
- Reduce utility costs while keeping you comfortable at home
- Provide environmental benefits
- Qualify you for tax incentives
- Improve your home’s value
- Offer better air quality by replacing older systems
The Importance of a Healthy Home and Good Air Flow
Your HVAC system circulates air throughout your space and uses an air filter to keep out impurities. An older system can allow pollutants, allergens, dust and mold spores to enter your home. A new, energy-efficient HVAC system protects more than the environment — it protects your home.
Newer HVAC systems are excellent at controlling moisture and humidity, reducing mold and mildew growth and providing better air quality. Some newer systems have innovative technology to trap and filter pollutants, mold spores and even bacteria and viruses.
HVAC Repair vs. Replacement
If your system is over ten years old, replacing it can mean you enjoy a warranty, better features, more energy savings and other benefits. If your system has R-22 refrigerant, especially, consider switching. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is phasing out this refrigerant, and systems with R-22 are becoming harder to repair than newer R-410A systems, which are better for the environment.
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters heat water as needed instead of storing it in a large tank. This makes them more energy-efficient and less expensive to operate. They take up less room and tend to last longer, so they can save you money and reduce your carbon footprint. If you have an older water heater, contact Circle-E Facility & Home Services to see if going tankless is right for you.
How to Improve Home Energy Efficiency
Using energy-efficient home plans for new builds ensures homeowners move directly into energy spaces. If you have an older home, Circle-E Facility & Home Services has many options to help you become energy efficient.
