3 HVAC Tips to Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

The amount of greenhouse gases you produce during your daily life is your carbon footprint. Driving, using your HVAC system, and even mowing your lawn will produce carbon through electricity and fossil fuel use. Heating and cooling take up about half the energy bill in an average Atlanta, Georgia, home. You can lower your utility bills and reduce your carbon footprint by upgrading your HVAC system, replacing it, or using a programmable thermostat.

Upgrade Your HVAC System

A better air filter, a zoning system that sends conditioned air where it’s needed most, extra insulation for your ductwork, and many other upgrades can help the environment by reducing your carbon footprint. A professional like the ones at Trinity Air Inc. Heating and Air Conditioning can let you know which improvements will help your HVAC system.

Replace It

If your heater or air conditioner is over a decade old, you can save energy and prevent expensive, inconvenient breakdowns with a replacement. An efficient HVAC system is a significant investment, but it can pay for itself over time through power savings.

Variable-speed HVAC systems have fans with multiple settings, so they can prevent costly temperature variations. A ductless HVAC system has an outdoor unit and one or more indoor units. It’s more efficient than a conventional system because it doesn’t have to move conditioned air through ducts.

Using a Programmable Thermostat

You can use a programmable thermostat to increase the temperature of your HVAC system when you leave for work or go to sleep, and return your home to a more comfortable temperature before you arrive or wake up. You can choose a different schedule for weekdays and weekends or for each day of the week, and you can control many models from anywhere with your computer, tablet or phone.
