As energy prices and the temperature in South Texas continue to move higher, it has become imperative to seek out energy-efficient HVAC equipment that can mitigate these volatile energy-price movements and lower your utility bill for the long term. If you are currently looking for a guide to help you through this very important process, use the following information to make the best decision.
Contrary to popular opinion, finding solutions to your energy-efficiency problems by upgrading your HVAC equipment is quite easy, and comes in the simple form of the Energy Star label. Having Energy Star certification is proof that the HVAC equipment in question has gone through the most rigorous efficiency-standards testing that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has available.
Energy Star was developed, among other reasons, to help present consumers with a simple, transparent way of finding and purchasing energy-efficient systems that increase energy savings, without forfeiting performance or convenience.
The label can be found on over 60 categories of products, including all HVAC-related equipment, with local Corpus Christi business CCAC, Inc. carrying the label on many of its heating and cooling systems.
What is the benefit of using the label? It’s estimated that, on average, half of all energy homeowners expend comes from heating and cooling the home. With this in mind, using an Energy Star-certified air conditioner, for example, has the potential to produce significant savings.
In addition, considering the importance of the Energy Star label to our nation’s energy security, you also may be eligible to receive government tax credits for purchasing Energy Star-certified products.
If your current HVAC equipment is not Energy Star certified, you have two options. First, you can bring in a technician to do maintenance, so the equipment runs as efficiently as possible. The second is to discuss replacement options with a qualified HVAC contractor if your equipment does not meet minimum efficiency standards.
