Benefits of Energy Efficiency

Having energy efficient equipment is very important to the overhead cost of your building. Up to nearly half of a building's energy consumption is through the HVAC system. Having properly functioning equipment can drastically reduce your energy consumption thus putting money back into your pocket. Although the up-front costs are sometimes painful, it is well worth the initial investment of an energy efficient system. Depending on the efficiency of your HVAC equipment, payback periods can be extremely short thus saving you money quickly.

Along with saving money and energy with new equipment, fewer unit-related costs also occur. The majority of the time, the older the equipment the greater amount of mechanical problems arise. With new equipment not only will you be able to enjoy not having to constantly call a contractor for repairs, but saved repair costs will reduce your payback period.

Here are a few tips on saving energy:

  • Change your filters
  • Regular equipment maintenance through a good service plan
  • Seal your cooling and heating ducts
  • Install a programmable thermostat
  • Install Energy Star or high efficiency EPA rated equipment
