Do you realize that nearly half of the energy used at home is consumed by your heating and air conditioning system? Now imagine how hard your system is working to keep you comfortable if the coils or air ducts are dirty.
Properly maintaining your heating and air conditioning system with routine maintenance can increase efficiency while decreasing your energy bills.
There are many ways to “go green” at home, but one of the simplest and most cost-effective ways is with a tune-up twice a year. You can take additional steps to create a sustainable and environmentally friendly home with a few energy saving solutions.
Follow these suggestions from Aire Serv to create a more “green”, energy efficient home:
If your installing a new air conditioner, look for a high Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) number. Some units manufactured about 10 years ago were in the 10 SEER range while many units today are in the 20 SEER range. Going from a 10 to 20 SEER will cut your cooling costs in half.
When installing a new HVAC unit you can donate the old one if it's in working order and non-functioning pieces can be picked-up by your municipal solid waste agency or Steel Recycling Institute. Go to recycle-steel.org or earth911.org for more local options.
In an effort to encourage sustainable products R-22, the refrigerant most commonly used in today’s heating and cooling units, is being phased out. Beginning January 2010, all new units will be required to use “environmentally sound” refrigerant, such as R-410A. The phase out has been mandated by the government in an effort to help protect the Earth’s ozone layer.
Remember, finding energy solutions at home doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice your comfort. You can save money while being “green” and stay comfortable. For more information on the refrigerant change or on how you can save money on your next energy bill, contact your local Aire Serv.
