Green Begins With Me
Al Fulford Heating & Air now offers a wide variety of green solutions for the purpose of optimizing the efficiency of your home’s energy usage. Heating and cooling your home uses more energy and costs more money than any other system in your home—making up about 54% of your utility bill.
No matter what kind of heating and cooling system you have in your house, you can save money, reduce energy consumption and increase your comfort by properly maintaining and upgrading your equipment. But remember, an energy-efficient furnace alone will not have as great an impact on your energy bills as using the whole-house approach. By combining proper equipment maintenance and upgrades with recommended insulation, air sealing, and thermostat settings, you can cut your energy use for heating and cooling—and reduce environmental emissions—from 40%-50%.
In addition to these savings, homeowners can now receive government benefits, in the form of tax credits, for making upgrades to their heating and cooling systems as part of the recently enacted stimulus package. Tax credits are now available for up to $1,500 in improvements covering high efficiency systems. The government package also covers 30% of the labor and materials involved in the installation of your new systems.
Replacing your air conditioning and heating system with a new high efficiency model may save you hundreds of dollars in utility expenses, increase the value of your home, clean the air you and your family breath, and dramatically reduce your impact on the natural environment.
Upgrading your HVAC system can potentially reduce your home’s energy consumption by 40 to 50%. With a new high efficiency system and properly sealed duct work you could dramatically reduce or even eliminate utility increases. Also, many utility companies offer incentives to homeowners who install high efficiency HVAC systems, search our database to see if you qualify for a rebate or low-interest loan.
The Environmental Protection Agency lists Indoor Air Quality among the top 5 risks to human health, probably because indoor air can be 2-5 times more polluted than outdoor air. Indoor Air Quality add-ons for your air conditioning and heating system can make your home a dramatically healthier place for you and your family by reducing allergies, helping prevent asthma, and even boosting productivity.
So many parties win when you decide to install high-efficiency central air conditioners and heaters: you save money on your energy bills, the environment is saved from excess green house gas emissions, and our country reduces dependency on non-renewable energy. Many people therefore want to incentivize you to install these high-efficiency systems. Use our Rebates Engine to learn if there are incentives you can take advantage of.
