Reasons to Consider a Green HVAC System

Posted By : Aubrey Mead , on Feb, 2019

 

The U.S. Department of Energy notes that heating and cooling of your home accounts for more than 50% of the energy used in the typical household. For commercial businesses, it can be responsible for nearly 75% of the energy used. This alone can explain why many people are choosing to switch to a green HVAC system in Macon, GA. Not only will you be reducing your environmental footprint, but you could save money too.

Tax Breaks for Switching

While it likely won’t last forever, right now you can get a tax break when you choose to install a new HVAC system. You could save $5,000 or even more, depending on how large the size of the system is. This is a great way to drop the price of upgrading to new technology that is more efficient and kinder to the environment.

Coming Ban on R22-Based Air Conditioners

R22 is a refrigerant that used to be used in nearly all heat pump systems and air conditioners. However, this product is being phased out due to the harm it does to the ozone layer. As of January 1, 2020, the refrigerant will be banned from the U.S. with all new air conditioners being required to use more environmentally friendly refrigerants, such as R410A. At this time, it may become prohibitively expensive to service air conditioners that still use R22.

Multiple Zone Custom Heating and Cooling

If you’re interested in having multiple heating and cooling zones, the Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) system might be the right option for you. This is a green technology with various small air handlers which can each be controlled individually but while still being a part of a single system. The system detects the need for each zone and then puts out the right amount of refrigeration for each air handler. Since it only provides the amount of cooling needed for each area, it turns off more often and has a lower capacity, making it efficient and environmentally friendly.
