Innovations in Heating and Cooling

It’s no secret that your car’s engine works best at a warm temperature. However, that heat must go somewhere. Radiators are the answer.

A cooling system utilizes refrigerant, ductwork, and fans to distribute air. A heating system uses a fuel source like gas or oil to warm the air.

Variable-Speed Technology

Variable speed technology is a major innovation in heating and cooling. The technology is utilized by the blower motors in both gas furnaces and air handlers to operate at different speeds to regulate airflow in your home. This technology is designed for an evenly distributed air throughout your home, while 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. The majority of people don’t drive their car in a single gear. Instead, they would change gears according to the demands of driving the vehicle or road conditions. The same principle applies in your home. Variable speed systems offer homeowners and contractors with a variety of benefits, including energy savings, lower sound levels, improved indoor air quality, and the potential for utility company rebates.

The variable-speed technology allows your system to perform more efficiently in low load conditions. This is because traditional systems operate on a set point and then achieving the desired temperature and then turning off. When the home’s temperature rises, the system cycles back on to bring it back to the desired temperature. The constant cycle uses up a lot of energy, especially since the unit is starting up at full capacity.

With a variable speed system, the compressor runs at a lower than full capacity for extended durations and consumes much less energy. The result is your system is able to save up to 30% on energy costs.

The use of variable speed technology in combination with other energy-saving improvements, such as zoning systems or smart controls can improve the effectiveness and performance of your system. Contact our team of experts to determine if a system using Greenspeed Intelligence and variable speed technology is the best option for your home.

We can assist you to make the right choice for your home. We will provide the benefits of a variable-speed system and how it can work in conjunction with other energy-efficient products to provide the best results. Our licensed HVAC specialists can assist you in the process of choosing the right system.

Wi-Fi(r) Controls

Wireless smart thermostats allow homeowners to have more control over their HVAC systems while reducing energy costs and enhancing comfort. They use wireless technology to connect to smartphones or computers giving users the ability to monitor and alter the temperature of their home from afar. Based on the model, these devices can also detect patterns in the household and automatically change plans to cut down on energy use when nobody is home, or increase comfort when residents are at home.

Smart thermostats are easy to use and let you check your system at any time. They will detect when you are away from home and enter an energy-saving “Away” mode to help you save money on your electric bill. Once you’re back in the house, they will return to the normal home setting for maximum comfort.

As compared to standard thermostats, Wi-Fi(r) controls are more sophisticated and provide additional convenience features such as email alerts remote monitoring of the system, a custom Web portal that displays just as your thermostat, and the ability to control multiple zones from one device. They are the ideal solution for managing a vacation home or rental property from a distance.

A thermometer that can be programmed can be programmed to adjust the temperature at different times of the day to provide maximum comfort. This is ideal for homeowners as well as tenants. But with busy lifestyles children’s activities, and work schedules it can be a challenge to keep track of the schedule of a thermostat that is programmable. A smart thermostat with sensors in it tracks the occupancy of rooms as well as outdoor and indoor temperatures, and humidity to monitor the current conditions. It also tracks energy usage to determine if heating or cooling is required and makes the necessary adjustments.

Sensors and intelligent programming of the Wi-Fi(r), control can reduce your home’s power consumption by up to 10%. They not only help reduce your energy costs but also reduce the carbon footprint of your home, and contribute to a healthier environment.

ENERGY START(r) Certification

ENERGY STAR is one of the most well-known and easily recognized labels in the United States. You’ll find it on refrigerators, light bulbs and other appliances. You can be sure that the items bearing the ENERGY STAR label have been independently tested to make sure they adhere to strict standards for energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The same standards that are applicable to individual products can be applied to entire buildings. To be qualified for ENERGY STAR, buildings must perform at minimum 15% better than ASHRAE 90.10-2010 (or state building codes). The performance target takes into account a number of factors that affect the use of energy, including weather conditions, occupancy and size of cooling and heating systems and the type.

A building must be independently verified by a HERS Rater in order to qualify for Energy STAR Certification. The HERS Rater inspects the insulation, air barrier, and HVAC equipment in a home to ensure they are installed and sized correctly. The Rater also conducts thorough inspections of duct and ventilation leakage.

All of these actions will help homeowners save money and energy while safeguarding their health and the environment. This makes the ENERGY STAR certification an excellent method to increase the value of any apartment or home. Studies show that ENERGY STAR-certified homes and apartments tend to be rented or sold at higher costs.

ENERGY STAR-certified buildings are not just more energy efficient, but they also have lower operating costs. They are also more comfortable and use less energy. In turn, the EPA estimates that ENERGY homes with ENERGY STAR ratings save Americans over $39 billion in energy costs every year.

High-Efficiency Systems

A high-efficiency HVAC system is more than just a way to reduce your energy consumption. It’s also a way to aid the environment and cut down on carbon emissions. High-efficiency systems consume up to 33% less energy than older models, which results in lower utility bills and substantial savings on energy. High-efficiency systems lower greenhouse gas emissions and also use low-ozone, non-toxic refrigerants.

It may cost more to install a new high-efficiency, energy-efficient system than an older model. However, it will be able to pay for itself over time in the form of lower costs for energy and maintenance. It can also increase the value of your home which makes it easier to resell.

High-efficiency systems provide a variety of benefits like improved comfort, quieter operation and improved indoor air. For instance, the latest filtering systems eliminate more harmful contaminants from the air. The systems can improve occupant comfort as they provide precise temperature control, eliminating hot or cold spots.

Heating and cooling accounts for 45percent of the electricity that is used in the average home. You will start saving money on your energy bills once you replace your old HVAC system with a more efficient unit. You can easily locate a Carrier furnace or AC that meets your needs by looking up the annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating. The greater the AFUE, the greater the efficiency.

New energy-efficient systems can achieve up to 98% AFUE and convert all the energy used to heat the source of fuel into warmth for your home. This is a significant improvement over traditional furnaces which operate at 80percent AFUE and use 35% of their fuel.

High-efficiency units use less energy and produce less greenhouse gases than earlier models, thereby helping to save the planet. They can also make use of non-toxic refrigerants, removing the need to manufacture chemical products that harm the ozone layer. Building owners and contractors can reduce the environmental impact of their projects by incorporating high-efficiency system into green construction projects. These systems can also reduce construction costs and are a wise investment for both occupants and builders alike.
