You can lower your utility bills and heat and cool your Louisville, Kentucky, home more efficiently by replacing or upgrading your HVAC system. You can also reduce your production of pollutants from fossil fuels. Advanced, environmentally friendly HVAC technologies include the following: geothermal systems, zoning, and energy analysis software.
Geothermal HVAC systems work a lot like conventional air conditioners or heat pumps. They’re more efficient because they exchange heat with the ground or a nearby water source instead of the air. Temperatures underground or underwater are more stable than air temperatures. Many geothermal systems use water instead of refrigerant, so you won’t have to worry about a harmful leak. Some systems can even provide hot water and let you get rid of your water heater. That way, you’ll have more storage space and one less appliance to maintain.
An HVAC system with zoning has two or more thermostats, allowing you to set separate temperatures in different rooms or zones. It often uses a system of dampers in your ductwork to direct hot or cool air where it’s needed. Some units are ductless, with more than one indoor unit connected to an outdoor unit by conduits for refrigerant.
Energy Analysis Software
Many programmable or smart thermostats include energy analysis software that can give you detailed information about potential savings. Some models can connect wirelessly to motion sensors or cameras and learn your routine over time. They can turn down your HVAC system while you’re asleep or away from home, helping you save energy without reducing your comfort. They can also remind you when you need to change your system’s air filter or have it checked by a professional.
