Discover how we can help save you money by making heating and cooling your home energy efficient:
1. HIGH EFFICIENCY HEATING & COOLING SYSTEMS
To get the most energy efficient heating or cooling system, you need to look at the AFUE & SEER ratings. Annualized Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) for heating systems and Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratings for cooling systems, guide you as to the energy efficiency of each model. The higher the rating, the more energy efficient the system and the more money you'll save on the operating costs over the lifetime of your system.
2. PROFESSIONAL INSTALLATIONS
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) advises consumers to choose an experienced professional to perform the installation of their heating and cooling systems. A professional HVAC technician knows how to best and correctly place and install an HVAC system which will help you achieve maximum operating efficiency.
3. PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE
With preventative maintenance checks, you can maximise the lifespan and energy efficiency of your heating and cooling systems. Not only will a periodic tune up ensure maximum operating potential, and keep your system running at peak efficiency, it also helps to avoid potential system break downs in the future due to minor problems that would be picked up in a service check.
4. HVAC SYSTEM ZONING
By splitting your heating and cooling into zones, you're able to reduce costs by only selecting to heat or cool rooms or areas that are in use. Each zone is independently controlled, so you're also able to select different temperatures in each zone, giving greater control of individual comfort. With system zoning, it's easy to start reducing energy consumption and see real savings on your utility costs. Zoning can be retro-fitted, so even your older system can start working more efficiently for you.
5. DIGITAL PROGRAMMABLE THERMOSTATS
Another EPA recommendation is installing a digital programmable thermostat as a means to improving your heating and cooling system energy efficiency. The programmable timer can be preset for more efficient and convenient heating and cooling.
6. EXTERNAL WIRELESS SENSORS
With wireless sensors your system can download live outside temperature information and make adjustments to your inside temperature that can help save you money.
7. ENERGY AUDITS
With an HC Blake energy audit we can evaluate your current energy usage and locate energy loss points and recommend and install new systems, maintenance or upgrades to improve your home's energy efficiency whilst reducing your utility costs.
