Choosing the Right HVAC System for an Energy-Efficient Home


energy efficientHVAC systems don’t last forever, and when it’s time to install a new one, the decision can be difficult. With the introduction of new technology, there are many options for a new purchase or even technologies that can enhance the efficiency of your current system. Since your HVAC system performs a vital function in your Mobile, Alabama, home, and is a major investment. It is important to make an informed decision when making any type of upgrade. The following are a few factors to keep in mind when choosing a new HVAC system for an energy-efficient home.


Not all HVAC systems heat or cool a home the same way. If you live in a smaller home, you don’t need an HVAC system with a high heating or cooling capacity because you will end up wasting energy. On the other hand, if you live in a large home or are installing a system into a large business, a small HVAC system may not have the capacity to keep the building at a comfortable temperature. Before deciding on a system, research the heating and cooling capacities. For the most effective solution, consult your HVAC technician.


When installing a new HVAC system, consider the current technology that can turn your system into a highly-efficient machine. Smart thermostats keep the temperature under precise control, allowing you to save as much as possible on your utility bill. Whole-home air purifiers provide additional filtration power to significantly improve your indoor air quality. These and other innovations will save you money while keeping you comfortable.

Advanced Options

There are many options for managing the temperature and indoor air quality in your home including ultra-efficient heat pumps and radiant heating. Depending on the size and location of your home, these options could save you more money than a standard HVAC system would.

3 Reasons to Switch to a Programmable Thermostat


During winter, trying to regulate the temperatures in your Mobile, Alabama, home according to the fluctuating temperatures can be difficult. A programmable thermostat takes all the frustration out of maintaining a consistent home temperature. You can enter settings in advance according to your schedule. This efficient device allows you to save money and improve comfort.

Better Comfort

Adjust your programmable thermostat around your schedule, so the house is at the temperature you like best when you get up in the morning and when you get home from work in the evening. Instead of walking into a house that is freezing cold, or waking up and emerging from the warm covers to icy temperatures, let your programmable thermostat work for you. Correctly programming your thermostat will ensure you avoid these inconveniences.

Great Savings

Programming the thermostat according to your schedule is a smart way to save money. Instead of cooling an empty house all day, the programmable thermostat adjusts the interior temperature to an energy-saving level while you are away or sleeping. Then, it starts to provide heat gradually so that your home will be at the right temperature when you need it. Your home is always at the right temperature and you save money at the same time.

More efficient use of the thermostat means that you optimize the performance of your furnace. Reduced energy consumption is reflected on your utility bills.

Mobile Connectivity

Recent programmable thermostat models allow you to connect to them via your Internet-enabled device. That means you can alter your home’s temperature even when you are away. If you are running late or the weather changes unexpectedly, you can alter the thermostat’s programming without having to dash home. This extra control over the thermostat can save you more money while allowing you to make sure the temperature in your home is always exactly how you like it.
