Give Yourself the Gift of a Lower Energy Bill

Heating and air conditioning is your single largest energy expense. If you choose to install an energy-efficient system, you can save a significant amount of money over time. Before long, your new HVAC system can even pay for itself.

 

Why Are Modern Systems More Efficient?

Many high-end HVAC systems today boast bells and whistles that enable them to cool and heat with more precision, limiting waste while maintaining a higher level of comfort. Look for a system that includes some of the following features:

Electronic Ignition: Less advanced furnaces maintain a continuous fire burning, called a pilot light, even when the unit isn’t in use. This is obviously wasteful. That’s why many of today’s furnaces feature an electronic ignition to spark the pilot light only when needed.

Variable Speed Blower: A conventional heating and cooling system kicks on in high gear then abruptly shuts off when the home reaches a set temperature. The on-off cycle is comparable to stop-and-go driving, which as we all know, uses more gas than cruising the freeway. A variable-speed blower more precisely controls the climate in your home by operating at a lower capacity and ramping up as needed.

Sealed Combustion Chamber: The highest efficiency furnaces feature a sealed combustion chamber. This feature pulls air from the outside instead of recycling air from the inside to burn fuel. This saves already heated air from going to waste as combustion fuel.

 

An Energy-Efficient System Helps You Save Money

Getting an energy-efficient system offers your home a number of benefits.

  • You can enjoy a lower electricity bill

  • A high-quality system means fewer repairs

  • Newer systems sync with your mobile device

You can also boost the effectiveness of your HVAC system by replacing your air filter every 30 to 90 days, which can lower your heating and cooling costs by as much as 15 percent.



Bottom line: Modern HVAC systems require less energy to heat and cool your home. By updating your system this winter, you can give yourself the gift of a lower electricity bill for years to come.
