Why You Should Choose Eco-friendly Central Heating & Cooling
Heating and cooling accounts for up to 50% of the energy used in your home, so it’s important to be as efficient as possible. One way to do this is by using eco-friendly central heating and cooling products, along with geothermal systems.
Here are three of the top benefits of central heating and cooling products:
Cost-effective: These systems may cost more upfront, but their cost savings are worth it. The systems don’t use as much energy to heat and cool, so they practically pay for themselves in the amount of money you save in energy bills each month. ENERGY STAR® central air-conditioning units, for example, are about 15% more efficient than traditional units. They can reduce your annual utility bill by more than $115.
Good for the Environment: Geothermal heating and cooling systems take advantage of the almost constant underground temperature of 55 degrees. The pipes are in an underground loop and use the air there instead of the hot or cold outside air—this uses very little electricity and no fossil fuels. And there’s more good news for the environment; federal regulations now require that all central cooling units use R-410a refrigerant, which doesn’t contribute to ozone depletion.
Long Life Span: The internal parts of a geothermal system can last 25 years, and the underground loop can last 50 while a traditional HVAC system lasts around 15 years. You can usually recoup your cost of a geothermal system within the first five years, which means you’ll have years of savings and no other costs. Proper installation is essential to ensuring your system has a long life, so it’s important to use an experienced contractor.
