How To Build A Super Green And Clean HVAC System

Is your old HVAC system secretly an energy-sucking super villain? That sneaky, leaky old system may be sucking up energy, which eventually creates greenhouse gasses, one of the major air pollutants damaging our environment. Never fear — your local HVAC repair team and their new Energy Star certified units are here to save the day. A simple switch from a standard unit to an Energy Star model can lower your carbon footprint and save you around $491 per year. The secret is in the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER). The higher the rating, the better for your budget and for the environment.

If your system is too strong or disproportionate to the size of your home, you have an inefficient system on your hands. An overzealous or underperforming system’s energy-sucking cycling can cost you about 30 percent efficiency, which rapidly depletes your utilities budget. Watch out for subtle leaks due to poor insulation or improper HVAC installation. Call in the professionals to assess your options, conduct repairs, and install new units.

Your old HVAC unit’s evil plot to deplete your wallet and the environment is no match for your money-saving super powers, energy efficient heating and cooling upgrades, and seasonal filter changes. You’ll defeat drafty winters and sticky summers once you’ve installed the mighty trio of energy-efficient HVAC system components: an Energy Star gas furnace for heating, an Energy Star electric unit for cooling, and a programmable thermostat. In the infographic below published by Moncriefair.com, you’ll learn just how upgrading or servicing your HVAC system can transform you into an earth and money saving superhero.
