How to Go Green With Your HVAC Installation
More homeowners are environmentally conscious than ever. When it comes time for an HVAC installation, they want to make choices that keep their energy bills as low as possible but also protect the environment for their children and generations to come.
Avoid Waiting Too Long
Cooper Heating & Cooling has been serving homeowners in Denver, Fort Collins, and Colorado Springs for more than four decades. When it comes to replacing cooling and heating equipment, waiting too long is a common mistake we encounter. An air conditioner may last 20 years, but it will likely stop being eco-friendly long before that milestone.
Opt for Higher SEER and AFUE Ratings
SEER ratings are an indication of energy efficiency for air conditioners and the cooling aspect of heat pumps. AFUE measures energy efficiency for furnaces and the heating aspect of heat pumps. Go green by buying the most energy-efficient equipment you can afford.
Consider a Zoned System
Zoned systems are generally more expensive up front, but they’re also more sophisticated. For example, you’ll be able to maintain a cooler temperature in living spaces being used and a more modest temperature in rooms that aren’t being used.
Invest in a Programmable Thermostat
A programmable thermostat is a great way to use less energy. You could program the device to raise or lower the temperature when the family has left for the day and return it to comfortable levels in advance of your arrival.
Know How Your Service Provider Recycles Equipment and Materials
Some HVAC service providers are more conscious of the environment than others. Be sure to ask your provider how it will dispose of old equipment and materials.
