Innovations in Heating and Cooling

It’s no secret that the engine in your car is most efficient when it’s warm. However, that heat must go somewhere. This is where the radiator comes in.

A cooling system makes use of refrigerant, ductwork, and fans to distribute air. Heating systems make use of fuel sources such as gasoline or oil to warm the air.

Variable-Speed Technology

When it comes to heating and cooling variable speed technology, it is one of the most significant developments in years. It is used by the blower motors in gas furnaces as well as air handlers to operate at various speeds that regulate airflow throughout your home. This technology is designed to allow for a more evenly distributed air throughout your home, reducing hot and cold areas.

The idea behind variable speed technology is to ensure that the system’s output is in line with your home’s needs for energy. Most people wouldn’t drive their car in a single gear. Instead, they would shift gears in accordance with the driving demands of the vehicle or road conditions. The same principle applies to your home. Variable speed systems offer homeowners and contractors with a myriad of benefits, including energy savings, lower sound levels, better indoor air quality, and the potential for utility company rebates.

The variable-speed technology lets your system operate more efficiently in low load situations. This is because traditional systems use a setpoint, at the desired temperature, before turning off. If the temperature in your home increases it is then cycled on to return to the desired temperature. This constant cycling consumes lots of energy since the unit is constantly running at full capacity.

With a variable speed system, the compressor runs at a lower than full capacity for long time periods and uses much less energy. Your system could save you up to 30% on energy costs.

The use of variable speed technology combination with other energy-saving improvements such as zoning systems or smart controls can boost the effectiveness and performance of your system. Ask our team of experts if a system that uses Greenspeed Intelligence and variable speed technology is right for your home.

We can help you make the right decision for your home, by explaining the benefits of a system using variable-speed technology, and how it can be paired with other energy efficient products to provide the best results. Our certified HVAC professionals have the knowledge to guide you through the selection process.

Wi-Fi(r) Controls

Wireless smart thermostats allow homeowners more control over their HVAC system, which can help in reducing the cost of energy and increasing comfort. These models use wireless communication to communicate with smartphones or computers that allows users to monitor and alter the temperature of their home remotely. Depending on the model they can also detect patterns in the household and automatically adjust schedules to reduce energy consumption when nobody is home, or maximize comfort when homeowners are home.

Smart thermostats allow you to monitor your system at all times. They can even detect when you’re away from the home and switch to an energy-saving mode called ‘Away’ to help reduce your power bill. Then, once you are back in the house the system will go back to the regular Home setting to ensure optimal comfort.

The Wi-Fi(r) controls are more sophisticated than standard programmable thermostats and offer added convenience features such as emails remote system monitoring, and a personalised web portal that acts as your thermostat. They also allow you to manage multiple zones from the same device. They are the perfect solution to manage a vacation home or rental property from a distance.

A thermometer that can be programmed can be programmed to alter temperature at different times during the day to ensure maximum comfort. This is ideal for homeowners and tenants. With busy schedules children’s activities, and work schedules it can be difficult to keep track of a programmable thermostat’s scheduling. Smart thermostats with built-in sensors track the occupancy of rooms, indoor temperatures and outdoor humidity to keep track of the current conditions. It also monitors your energy usage to determine if your cooling or heating is required and adjusts accordingly.

The Wi-Fi(r) control’s sensors and intelligent programming can significantly reduce your home energy consumption by 10 percent or more. They will not only cut your energy bills but help reduce your carbon footprint and help to improve the environment.

Energy START(r) Certification

ENERGY STAR has become one of the most recognized and easily recognized labels across the United America. It’s on your refrigerators, light bulbs and other appliances. When you purchase items bearing the ENERGY STAR logo, you know they’re independently tested and verified to meet strict energy efficiency standards and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The same standards that are in place to individual products can be applied to a building’s entire. To be qualified for ENERGY STAR, buildings must perform at least 15% better than ASHRAE 90.10-2010 (or state building codes). The performance target is based on a variety of factors that influence the use of energy, including the weather conditions, occupancy levels, and size of cooling and heating systems and the type.

To qualify to be eligible for ENERGY STAR certification, a structure must undergo an independent verification by a HERS Rater. The HERS Rater examines the insulation, air barrier, and HVAC equipment within a home to ensure they have been installed and sized properly. The Rater performs detailed inspections on vent leakage and duct leakage.

All of these actions can help homeowners save energy and money while protecting their health and environment. This is what makes the ENERGY STAR certification a great way to add value to any apartment or home. Studies have shown that ENERGY STAR approved apartments and homes are usually sold or rented at higher rates than those that don’t have the certification.

In addition to delivering long-term cost savings, ENERGY STAR certified buildings have been found to have lower operating costs than comparable buildings. They also feel more comfortable and use less energy. The EPA estimates that ENERGY STAR-certified homes are able to save Americans $39 billion a year in energy costs.

High-Efficiency Systems

A high-efficiency HVAC system is more than a way to save money on energy bills. It’s also a fantastic method to reduce carbon emissions and also help the environment. High-efficiency systems consume up to a third less energy than previous models, resulting in lower utility bills as well as significant energy savings. Besides decreasing greenhouse gas emissions high-efficiency systems use non-toxic refrigerants that won’t harm the ozone layer.

It may cost more to install a brand new, high-efficiency system than an older model. However it will pay for itself in the long run in the form of lower costs for energy and maintenance. It can also increase the value of your home’s equity and make it easier to sell your home when the time comes.

High-efficiency systems offer a wide array of benefits, such as enhanced comfort, more quiet operation, and better indoor air quality. Advanced filtering systems, for instance are able to remove more harmful pollutants. They can also improve the comfort of the occupants as they provide precise temperature control, removing hot or cold spots.

Heating and cooling use the most energy in the average home and account for 45% of household electrical usage. You will start saving money on your energy bills once you replace your old HVAC system with a more efficient unit. It is easy to find an Carrier furnace or AC that meets your requirements by determining the annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating. The greater the AFUE, the greater the efficiency.

Modern energy-efficient systems are capable of converting up to 98% of the energy in the fuel source directly into heat for your home. This is a huge improvement over traditional furnaces which operate at just 80% AFUE, wasting 35% of the fuel they burn.

High-efficiency units use less energy than older counterparts, which results in less greenhouse gas emissions and assisting to protect the environment. They can also make use of non-toxic refrigerants, which eliminates the need to make chemical products that harm the ozone. Builders and contractors can minimize environmental impact by incorporating high-efficiency system into green construction projects. These systems can also lower the costs of construction, making it a smart investment for builders as well as the building’s the building’s occupants.
