Updating Your Air Conditioning? Smart, Green Products to Know About

HVAC System

Today’s air conditioners have come a long way in the past decade or so. The HVAC industry has developed quieter, cleaner units that run on less energy and produce a better volume of conditioned air. In addition, there are control systems, indoor air quality products and new hybrid systems that hold even more high tech advancements. If you are not familiar with some of these cool, new HVAC upgrades, read on to learn more.

  • Programmable touch-screen thermostats – The latest thermostats not only offer flexible programming options for different times of day and zones, but they also allow homeowners to program all of this information from the comfort of a computer. Most programmable thermostats now offer WiFi remote access, making it easier to manage your home comfort while you’re away from home.
  • Multiple-stage fans and compressors – The latest blower fans and compressors can step down in as many as five stages, allowing your system to operate more efficiently and quietly without sacrificing overall comfort. Because of longer run times, multiple-stage compression also offers the best dehumidification.
  • Non-ozone depleting refrigerant – These new refrigerants aren’t just friendlier to the environment, but they’re also friendlier to your wallet. Over time, non-ozone depleting refrigerants offer better energy efficiency and performance than their older, pollution-prone predecessors. These refrigerants also help your new air conditioner achieve higher seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) ratings.
  • Ductless Air Conditioners – Although this is a self contained unit, ductless air conditioners are excellent for new additions, garages or outdoor room renovations.  Based on the location of your new space, you can easily speak with a certified, HVAC contractor to see if a ductless system is right for your home.
