New HVAC System Technologies Increase Efficiency and Eliminate Pollution
 


Very few people live in regions where the climate is nearly always accommodating and temperate; the rest of us must rely on heating and air conditioning systems. We don’t often think about the technology used to cool our homes, but if your cooling setup is older it may be time for you to consider investing in new technology and efficiency.

As a company, ARS is committed to keeping more money in our customer’s pockets and to protecting our environment. Older air conditioning units not only require more fuel and energy use, but they also emit more pollutants into the air, contributing to the energy and environmental crises our planet faces. Advancements in technology and unit engineering now provide a variety of cleaner and more efficient options for heating and cooling your home.  These include heat pumps, dual-fuel heat pumps, geothermal heat pumps, dual-source heat pumps and radiant heat and cooling systems. Understanding the technology behind each hvac system can help you choose the type that best fits your home’s needs. 

If you live in a home that is off of the power grid or located in an area with high electricity costs, a radiant heat and air conditioning system may be something you consider. This technology supplies heat or cooling directly to the floor or to wall panels of a house, the heat or cooling then radiates outwards. These units are more efficient because no energy is lost through a duct system, saving you money and eliminating energy waste. Energy Savers.gov also claims that the lack of moving air associated with this technology reduces indoor allergy irritants.

Heat pumps and duel-fuel heat pumps are other attractive ways to trim your fuel bills and reduce energy usage. A high efficiency heat pump works well for homes that already heat with electricity in mild climates, cutting the electricity these households use by 30%-40%. Duel-fuel heat pumps uses both electric and gas power to heat or cool a home, satisfying more than 70% of a home’s heating or cooling needs.  A duel-fuel pump is one of the most versatile units for heating or air conditioning. Contractor services regularly install this technology in areas of the county typically above freezing with low electric rates.

Geothermal heat pumps and dual-source heat pumps use the ground or water to absorb and spread heat and cooling. As a hvac system, either of these technologies work more efficiently, last longer, run more quietly and emit less pollutants than older units.

Trading out your old unit for a more efficient, environmentally friendly technology ensures that your power bill will decrease and that you can do your part to help the environment. It may also mean less AC repair than older units require. Additionally, adopting a new, higher efficiency technology may qualify you to receive federal tax credits. There are many advantages to these new technologies, and a quality ARS®/Rescue Rooter®  hvac contractor can help you to consider all of these technologies in context of your home and heating and cooling needs.
