Benefits of Upgrading to an Energy-Efficient HVAC System

Do your utility bills keep climbing? Do you have uneven temperatures throughout your home? Does your HVAC system run constantly? Is your system getting old (average lifespan is 15 years) and/or do you spend a lot on repairs? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, it may be time to upgrade your HVAC system. Not sure it’s worth the cost? The following are the many benefits of purchasing a modern, energy-efficient heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system. 

Cost Savings 

42% of the average homeowner’s utility costs are related to heating and cooling. A high-efficiency HVAC system requires less energy to operate, reducing your energy bills significantly. Check the Energy Star website for information on the most cost-effective systems. Some high-efficiency systems qualify for rebates and/or incentives (Energy Efficient Home Improvement Tax Credit and  High-Efficiency Electric Home Rebate Program).

Improved Indoor Air Quality

A home’s air quality is affected by its HVAC system. A poor system allows pollutants to build up resulting in sneezing, coughing, respiratory issues, headaches, asthma attacks, and eye irritation. High-efficiency air filtration technology reduces airborne particles (pollen, spores, bacteria, mold, etc.). Energy-efficient HVAC systems often contain powerful air filtration technology. Check the Energy-Star website for information on systems with HEPA filters. 

Consistent Temperature Control 

Does one room or area of your home feel warmer than another? An energy-efficient HVAC system allows you to achieve consistent temperature throughout your house. Some systems have zoning technology, enabling you to set different temperatures for different areas. Others have programmable thermostats that let you heat and cool spaces according to use. 

Improved Humidity Control 

50% or less humidity is ideal for a comfortable indoor environment. Energy-efficient HVAC systems often include humidity control that maintains optimal levels throughout the year. 

Extended Life 

Energy-efficient heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems are made to last. With proper maintenance, a new system may last approximately 20 years. 

Increased Home Value 

Real estate professionals concur that an energy-efficient HVAC system renders a home more appealing to prospective buyers, boosting its value by up to 7% and providing up to 60% return on investment.

Reduced environmental Impact 

An energy-efficient HVAC system uses less energy, produces fewer greenhouse gases, has a low impact on the environment, and contributes to a sustainable future. 

Upgrading to an energy-efficient heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system offers a variety of benefits (cost savings, increased energy efficiency, improved air quality, enhanced comfort, eco-friendly operation, increased humidity control, etc.). Consult an HVAC specialist when deciding which option is best for your home.
