Earth Day Energy Efficient HVAC Choices

Apr 22, 2019

By choosing the right HVAC system for your home, you too can do your part in creating a cleaner environment. From better energy efficient heating and cooling systems to geothermal systems, there are many ways you can help protect the environment. Nelson Comfort is all about doing their part. Here are two ways that you can choose a HVAC system that is energy efficient and green.

Earth Day History

On April 22, 1970, 20 million Americans took to the streets, town-halls, and parks to show support for a healthy, sustainable environment. Thousands of schools, colleges and universities across the country gathered to protect the environment. Interest groups that had been fighting against air, water, and land pollution, wildlife extinction, oil spills, toxic waste and pesticide use realized they shared a common vision to protect our planet.

In 1990, Earth Day went global, mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries and lifting environmental issues onto the world stage. Earth Day 1990 gave a huge boost to recycling efforts worldwide. Earth Day is now an annual event celebrated on April 22. Worldwide events are held to demonstrate support for protecting the earth. Earth Day now includes events in more than 193 countries, which are now   coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network.

Geothermal – HVAC Energy Efficient Choice

Geothermal energy systems are earth friendly because they do not burn fossil fuels like regular heating and cooling systems. Fossil fuels release greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and monoxide, which leave a carbon footprint. Geothermal energy systems also use much less electricity. Even the Environmental Protection Agency has stated that these systems are far less damaging than other HVAC systems.

Geothermal systems also cost very little when it comes to operating costs. These systems draw heat from the ground. This results in homeowners saving up to 70% of their heating costs and 50% of cooling costs. Federal, state, and local programs offer incentives to homeowners who install this system. This also increases your savings.

High Energy Efficient HVAC Systems

Similarly, a high-energy efficient HVAC system will burn fewer fossil fuels and be better for the environment. Look for the ENERGY STAR symbol when purchasing your home’s HVAC system. ENERGY STAR is a voluntary program that helps businesses and individuals save money and protect our climate through energy efficiency. These exceptional furnaces represent the leading edge in energy efficient products for this year. These furnaces are designed to provide the best comfort for the least energy.
