According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average family spends $2,200 in energy costs annually, with 46 percent of that going toward heating and cooling the home. Homeowners can trim these costs by choosing their HVAC contractor carefully.
Contractors earn the designation “Green Screened” by demonstrating their knowledge of state-of-the-art energy-saving technology. The companies must also recycle and conserve energy in their business. Home Comfort Experts, an HVAC contractor that services Northern Indiana and Southwest Michigan, carries this designation and we are dedicated to green solutions.
We chose to pursue becoming Green Screened to better help our clients save money on energy, without sacrificing any comfort when it’s time to heat and cool homes. Highly efficient HVAC equipment uses less energy to operate, which helps reduce greenhouse gases and your utility bills. That includes striving to improve homeowners’:
- Indoor air quality. Your indoor air quality is a concern to us, and as part of our services, we examine your HVAC ducts. Any loose or damaged duct elevates your utility bills and reduces interior air quality. Our company can install insulation around exposed ducts, another step toward lower bills and a cleaner environment.
- Indoor humidity levels. Humidity levels impact your heating and cooling expenses, along with your health and the durability of your home. In the summer, homes in Northern Indiana and Southwest Michigan become overly humid, while we contend with too-dry air in the winter. Humidity is something you can manage all year long as part of or independent of your HVAC system.
- Hot water systems. Heating water is the third largest energy expense in most homes, accounting for 14 percent of the typical energy bill. Home Comfort Experts has licensed plumbers on staff who can help you reduce this cost by installing a new, more energy-efficient heater or showing you how to lower the cost of operating your existing heater.
Those are just a few of the ways we can help you improve your household’s energy efficiency. Contact Home Comfort Experts for an HVAC contractor with experience in finding the most environmentally responsible ways to manage your home’s energy consumption.
