Trust the Experts for recommendations on sustainable home design and energy-efficient HVAC products.

What Is HVAC Sustainability?

From sustainable air conditioning solutions to maintenance, here are processes for green heating and cooling in a nutshell.

  • Green Installation

    Consumes less energy than a regular HVAC system, decreased energy consumption and improved efficiency.

  • High Efficiency

    High-efficiency HVAC systems have similar (or better) comfort while needing less energy than regular models.

  • Routine Maintenance

    Frequent tune-ups help extend your system’s life expectancy, which decreases the need for unnecessary repairs and early replacements, and therefore decreases energy use.

  • Proper Climate Control

    Proper temperature settings, like with smart thermostats, can majorly affect energy use and utility bills.

How to Make HVAC More Eco-Friendly

With the world dealing with more environmental challenges, more work is being done to ensure all parts of our daily lives become more sustainable. Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems contribute to our daily comfort and can also have a major impact on the environment. We realize customers increasingly want to select sustainable HVAC services and products that not only deliver comfort but also reduce] their carbon footprint.

Energy-Efficient HVAC Systems

One of the best ways to make HVAC systems more sustainable is to install energy-efficient HVAC systems. These systems are engineered to consume less energy to do the same functions as traditional HVAC systems, leading to more affordable energy bills and smaller carbon emissions. High-efficiency HVAC systems are usually certified by organizations such as ENERGY STAR®, which makes sure they align with HVAC efficiency standards, such as minimum SEER rating.

Renewable Energy Sources

Another approach to make HVAC systems more sustainable is to use renewable energy sources such as solar, wind or geothermal energy. These energy sources are plentiful, clean and renewable, making them great for powering HVAC systems.

Regular Maintenance

Regular HVAC maintenance is essential to make sure your HVAC system is operating at optimal performance and efficiency. This involves replacing air filters, examining ducts for leaks and having a pro check the system frequently. By keeping your HVAC system in great condition, you can lessen energy waste, extend the life expectancy of the system, and decrease the need for expensive repairs.

Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats are a great option for making your HVAC system more sustainable. They give you the ability to adjust your heating and cooling system from your smartphone or tablet, and they can also pick up on your preferences and automatically change the temperature to your liking. Smart thermostats also create detailed energy usage reports, which can help you find areas where you can make energy-saving adjustments.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Sustainable HVAC design is providing HVAC systems to homeowners and building owners while focusing on high-efficiency systems, achieving higher performance, while lowering consumption and energy loss.

  • Aside from the more common central heat pumps, the most sustainable HVAC systems are geothermal heat pumps, also called ground source heat pumps or water source heat pumps.

  • High-efficiency HVAC systems reach high performance (heating and cooling output) while using less energy than what was required from older, less efficient models.

  • Green HVAC installation focuses on adding energy-efficient HVAC models and properly sizing systems for the home’s requirements to ensure maximum comfort and efficient energy consumption.

  • Geothermal and solar HVAC are the latest sustainable HVAC developments in the industry.

  • Scheduling frequent tune-ups on your HVAC systems can help extend your system’s life span, which is a big step for personal sustainability. Smart thermostats also control the daily temperature of your home and help with zoning, which reduces impact on your systems by not having major temperature changes. Using energy-efficient HVAC systems can also be a big step in making your HVAC eco-friendly. High-efficiency HVAC systems are usually ENERGY STAR certified, which lowers carbon emissions by reaching high performance for less energy.

  • There are rebates and incentives in 2023 for adding energy-efficient HVAC models, like high-efficiency heat pumps. The Department of Energy goes over HVAC efficiency standards and changes the minimum efficiency ratings on models, like SEER rating, AFUE rating and HSPF rating, based on the newest research. This requires manufacturers to match the minimum efficiency ratings in all new models.
