With more homeowners than ever looking for more ways to go green, there are plenty of new technologies emerging to make things easier. The HVAC industry has been one of the most lucrative industries to embrace that environmentally friendly trend, and best of all, many of the changes you can implement in your home are lower cost.
Also, many of these “green” changes can be as simple as changing your daily routine or installing low-cost technology in your home. If you’ve been looking for ways to save on your energy costs while also helping the environment, then it may be time to contact your local HVAC contractor. Be sure to read on and learn some easy hacks you can start using today!
Energy Conservation is Easier Than You Think
While other industries require large initial investments for noticeable changes in your home, the heating and cooling industry makes things much simpler.
Not only will you be limiting your impact on the environment, but also you could improve the performance in your home. One good example of green-friendly changes in your home is programmable thermostats.
These smart units allow you to set temperatures higher when you’re not home, reducing the strain on the environment. At the same time, you’re also cutting down the runtime of your HVAC system, which translates into monthly savings.
Another great way to make a simple change is with your HVAC air filter. Contrary to popular belief, air filters are not recyclable. With a washable filter, you can reduce how many filters you buy in the year and get improved air quality in your home at the same time. With these two simple steps, you can save the environment and save some energy in your home too.
Green Changes Help Save Costs
Your HVAC heating and cooling systems are some of the largest consumers of energy in your home.
Why? Because they need to run constantly just to keep your home at comfortable levels.
When you make environmentally friendly choices in your home, you’re also reducing the amount of time that your HVAC system is working.
Not only does this reduce your energy costs, but also it can help your air conditioner run more efficiently. Over time this will reduce the risk of emergency repairs and possibly even extend the lifespan of your HVAC system.
Alternative Energy For Your Heating & Cooling
If small steps aren’t up to your speed, then you can do a much better job for the environment by upgrading to an alternative energy source in your home. The HVAC industry has created multiple green system options that may work for your home. Some of the most popular include:
- Radiant heating
- Geothermal heating
- Solar powered HVAC
- Ductless Mini Split Systems
- Heat Pumps
These systems all either pull their energy source from the environment or consume a fraction of the energy of a central HVAC system. If you’re unsure what options are right for your home, you can easily talk to your local HVAC company to find out about the installation process.
Easy Changes For Effective Green HVAC
As a homeowner, you should always be looking for better ways to run your daily routine.
With small changes like setting the temperature higher before leaving for the day or using a recyclable air filter, you can reduce your carbon footprint and improve efficiency and performance in your home.
