Is Your HVAC System Energy-Efficient?

Upgrading your HVAC system could save you a lot of money on energy costs in the long run. 

Is your furnace or air conditioner past its prime? If so, you may be experiencing that low-level anxiety that comes with knowing an HVAC failure is imminent. Most people don’t replace their HVAC system until it stops working, but there’s a good reason to replace it before that point: lower utility costs. 

HVAC systems that are more than 12 years old are typically much less efficient than their modern counterparts. For example, the U.S. Department of Energy states that air conditioners with the department’s “ENERGY STAR” seal of approval can reduce home cooling costs by 30%. Any newer system – with or without the ENERGY STAR seal – will be an improvement over an old HVAC system. 

Efficient Ductless Systems

If you have rooms in your home that are poorly insulated or used infrequently, you may be wasting energy by trying to heat or cool them year-round. In some homes, a combination of a central HVAC system and a ductless system is an energy-efficient way to keep your home comfortable. If a ductless system controls the temperature in one or more rooms, that decreases the load on your central HVAC system.

Ductless systems offer on-demand heating and cooling – use them only when you want to. These low-maintenance wall-mounted devices are easy to operate, and they run quietly.

The Importance of Ongoing Maintenance 

Even when you have an all-new HVAC system or ductless system, they’ll need annual maintenance to operate at peak efficiency. HomePro’s maintenance plan helps you stay on track with maintenance – we’ll schedule your annual appointments and call you with an appointment reminder. Our plan also offers discounts on repairs and priority services.
