Tips On Making Your Existing System Eco-Friendly in Hudson Valley

One way to take an existing HVAC system green or “eco-friendly” in your Hudson Valley home is to perform regular maintenance on the filters. A dirty air filter will result in decreased air flow throughout the system, which will make the HVAC unit work harder, and unnecessarily waste more energy than it has to. Dirty air filters can also cause dust and other particles to build up and get into the mechanics of the system, leading to lowered performance, and possibly reducing the life of the system. Air filters should be changed every 3 months to ensure clean, uninterrupted air flow.

Another green upgrade to an HVAC system is checking the duct work. Air flow lost to poor ducting can lead to a 20% loss in efficiency and can be a homes greatest energy waste. Energy can be saved by making sure all duct work in the home is properly sealed. Another green upgrade to existing HVAC systems is to install a programmable thermostat. Setting pre programmed temperature settings to different times of the day will ensure that the system is not wasting energy heating or cooling an empty home. Just adding a programmable thermostat can lead to over $180 a year in energy savings.

Another option is to upgrade the whole system to an ENERGY STAR certified HVAC system. These systems use more efficient technology than traditional systems and can save as much as 50% off current energy costs. Another cost benefit is that some areas and counties offer tax credits for upgrading to an energy efficient HVAC model. These systems will ensure that the system is energy efficient as well as environmentally friendly

Going Green With a Hudson Valley Geothermal System

How Hudson Valley Geothermal Systems WorkGeothermal systems are the most energy efficient, environmentally clean, and cost-effective space conditioning systems available today. That's because a geothermal system taps into the earth to capture free, renewable energy. The earth absorbs about 47% of the sun's energy that reaches it and stores that energy in the ground. A geothermal system extracts that free energy for heating during winter. For cooling, the system removes heat from the home and dumps it into the cooler earth. This transfer of heat energy is done through a series of pipes buried in the ground, or sunk in a pond, or by using well water. Because a geothermal system simply moves heat instead of burning a fossil fuel to generate it, it's more energy-efficient.

Geothermal Systems Provide Hudson Valley Homeowners With a Wide Range of Benefits

Savings: Generally, no other heating and cooling system offers lower operating costs, with savings up to 60% compared to ordinary systems.

Comfort: These systems provide even temperatures throughout the home year round, with excellent dehumidification during cooling.

Environmentally Friendly: Geothermal is a clean, green, and renewable technology to reduce your carbon footprint now and for future generations.

Reliable: Geothermal units last longer than ordinary air conditioners and heat pumps. Since the units contain fewer moving parts, they operate for years with little maintenance.

Quiet Operation: Unlike ordinary air conditioners and heat pumps, no outdoor unit is required. Geothermal units use heavy-duty, fully-insulated cabinets for quiet operation. Quiet, soft starting variable speed blowers are used in many models.

Flexibility: Heating, cooling and supplemental water heating all come from a single unit. There's also a wide variety of models and options to fit most any application.

Free Hot Water: During unit operation, free excess heat is used to supplement the home's water heater.

Energy Independence: Geothermal systems reduce our need to import fuel.

Safe and Clean: No flame, no flue, no odors.
