Get Better Efficiency With Energy Star HVAC Products
When you upgrade your HVAC equipment, make sure you choose the most energy-efficient options. The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Energy Star program has made this choice easier for consumers. Choosing Energy Star certified products means choosing products that save energy and therefore save you money.
HVAC products with the Energy Star label have qualified for that label only after passing tests in EPA-approved laboratories. You can be assured that the products are kinder to the environment than less-efficient models. By choosing Energy Star certified HVAC systems, you will be helping the environment.
Reduced Energy Bills
Your home’s heating and air conditioning system can be most expensive to operate. If you want to reduce your energy bill, it makes sense to switch to the most efficient systems you can find, because increased efficiency translates to reduced operating cost. Energy Star certified products are designed better and drain less power.
Energy Star HVAC equipment work smarter. Part of the certification process evaluates the performance of these systems in relation to their less efficient counterparts in providing comfort.
If you have experienced less comfort after upgrading, there could be several reasons, but you want to ensure that your HVAC system is neither oversized nor undersized. Before replacing HVAC equipment, always have your contractor perform a load calculation to determine the best size.
Rebates and Tax Credits
Switching to certified energy-efficient appliances sometimes comes with extra rewards besides saving on your energy bill. The government often gives incentives in the form of tax credits for buying certain Energy Star home products. In addition, some Energy Star partners offer rebates or specials when you upgrade to energy-efficient heating and cooling equipment.
