The largest user of energy in the typical North Texas home and business is the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system. This system can account for more than 40% of energy use and, thus, for more than 40% of the utility bill. Energy use by the HVAC system is affected by many factors such as insulation levels, system efficiency, shading on the home, quality and sealing of the windows and doors, design and integrity of the duct system, and how the system is used. Due to the extreme heat and periodic humidity, North Texas residents and business owners rely on air conditioning systems to maintain not only reasonable comfort levels, but lower humidity levels and higher air quality. The size, efficiency, and placement of an HVAC system, therefore, are all important.
HIGH ELECTRICITY BILLS? WE’VE GOT THE SOLUTION
With Texas’ weather extremities, and the increasing cost of energy, we are all forced to find ways to cut those rising costs and improve our home energy efficiency and comfort.
- Changing utility providers is typically not the answer!
- If your thermostat is set lower than 77* in the summer your home needs an energy audit.
AIR INFILTRATION ACCOUNTS FOR UP TO 30% OR MORE OF A HOME’S ENERGY COSTS!
- That excludes insulation inefficiencies!
- Our Energy Conservation Services (ECS) program can help!
ENERGY CONSERVATION SERVICES PROGRAM
The Energy Conservation Services program is a comprehensive heating and air service Plano program which entails the following:
1. ENERGY AUDIT
- RECOMMENDATIONS: We will assess the findings and provide recommendations to repair/improve the inefficiencies.
- COSTS: We will provide you with the costs to repair/improve the inefficiencies.
*Blower Door Test may have an additional charge.
2. TYPICAL RECOMMENDED REPAIRS AND IMPROVEMENTS
- Attic Ventilation repairs/upgrades.
- Attic Insulation
- Heating and Air service Plano repairs/upgrades.
- Weather-stripping on doors and windows.
- Caulking around doors and windows.
- Outlet and switch plate gaskets.
- Sealing HVAC duct system.
Air Conditioning and Heating Energy Conservation Facts
- Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning can account for more than 40% of your utility bill.
- For every degree setting below 78°F, you can spend up to 8% more in cooling costs.
- The average cost of electricity in Florida is 12.09 cents/kWh (EIA, 2015).
- Upgrading from a 10-SEER to a 14-SEER system can reduce your air conditioning costs by over 25%.
