The economy has caused us all to tighten our belts and cut down on the non-essentials. As we dive head first into summer, I can’t help but realize that the measures I’ve taken to reduce my energy usage are not going to impact my bill like an upgrade to a new HVAC system will. I’ve seen a difference with the new light bulbs and better air filter, and my bill did go even lower when I started changing my air filter more often, but my hvac system is already running around the clock! I know a lot of you are in the same position, so here are my reasons for upgrading.
First off, there’s monetary savings. A high efficiency system will reduce your energy usage, causing your bill to lower. These systems usually pay for themselves in about 12 months.
You will also have a lower environmental impact. Less energy usage translates to fewer carbon emissions and a smaller carbon footprint.
New, energy efficient hvac systems are designed to identify potentially malfunctioning equipment so you can have your air conditioning unit serviced before it breaks! This helps reduce costly repairs and the discomfort of a malfunctioning system.
Lastly, some hvac systems are designed to have round the clock monitoring. Companies can monitor your energy usage to help you make cutbacks where they are needed. This monitoring can control the unit’s energy usage 24/7 to minimize consumption and maximize savings, as well as make seasonal adjustments.
