You’ve finally moved out of your last apartment and own a home in Hallsville, Texas. You now have control over so many more things, from the flooring in your living room to your kitchen cabinets to your HVAC system. Instead of dealing with a building-wide system or annoying window units, you can implement green HVAC technologies in your home.
Heat pumps are a fantastic way to heat and cool your home because you only need one efficient system to do both heating and cooling. But heat pumps lose efficiency when the temperature approaches freezing because they depend on the outdoor air to perform their heat exchange processes. A dual fuel heat pump has a gas-powered furnace attached, and a smart thermostat switches between the two whenever it calculates the furnace is the more efficient option.
Several companies have innovated air ducts made out of recyclable materials, usually fabrics or cardboard. While this sounds inefficient, these air ducts are coated in materials that are fire-retardant and designed to prevent heat loss. Because the technology hasn’t been around, we can’t speak to how long these air ducts last. If you want your home to be really green, they might be worth looking into.
Control the temperature in the rooms of your home independently of one another with zoned heating and cooling. Instead of paying to heat or cool an entire house when you’re only using part of it, you use a smart thermostat to adjust temperature zones, which usually encompass a room or a piece of a house. It’s is convenience and energy-efficiency wrapped into one.
