1. ENERGY EFFICIENCY RATINGS HEATING & COOLING SYSTEMS
When looking for the most energy efficient heating or cooling system, we can assist with the very latest technology. In heating systems it is the AFUE rating (Annualized Fuel Utilisation Efficiency) and in cooling systems its the SEER rating (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating) that you need to take in to consideration when it comes to energy efficiency. The higher the rating is, the more energy efficient the model. The more energy efficient the system, the more money you could save keeping your home cool in summer and warm in winter.
2. PROFESSIONAL INSTALLATIONS
The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) recommends consumers employ a licensed and experience HVAC technician to perform the installation of their heating or cooling system to ensure the best energy efficiency. A trained technician knows how to calculate the optimum location to ensure maximum air flow and greater energy efficiency as well as being able to advise you on any energy saving features or upgrades your new system may have.
3. PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE
Your heating or cooling system will operate more efficiently and reliably if well maintained. With a professional periodic maintenance check, our technicians can detect and repair any issues reducing the chance of a breakdown. Your system will also continue to operate at peak efficiency and performance levels, saving you money.
4. ALL OF HOME ZONING
Splitting your heating and cooling into zones can provide you with greater control over your operating costs. You can now limit yourself to only heating or cooling areas in the house currently in use, for example, on a cold night, rather than wasting money blanket heating the entire home, you can select to only heat the bedrooms. You'll also enjoy greater control of temperature throughout as each zone is independently controlled so you can maintain different temperatures throughout to suit different members of the family or to accommodate rooms that may need a higher or lower temperature.
5. DIGITAL PROGRAMMABLE THERMOSTATS
The EPA also recommends digital programmable thermostats as an energy efficiency tool as the thermostat can be programmed to operate at preset times. This makes it useful on extreme weather days as you can program your system to switch on to your desired temperature before you're due to arrive home from work or before you rise for the day, rather than leaving your system running all day or night just so you can arrive or wake to a pleasant temperature. You can also preset a desired temperature and when that temperature is reached, the system shuts off and only restarts to maintain your set temperature.
We can upgrade your current heating or cooling system with a professionally installed digital programmable thermostat providing you with greater control, greater energy efficiency and all whilst maintaining your level of temperate comfort.
6. ENERGY AUDITS
Our expert technicians can help you become more energy efficient with an evaluation of the current energy efficiency of your home. This includes locating any energy loss points within your home, assessing the condition of your heating or cooling system and providing you with recommendations and solutions to ensure your home's heating and cooling is as energy efficient as possible to help you save money.
