There are a variety of comfort accessories that can help you get the most from your heating and cooling system. But you might not be aware of some of the best accessories available. Here are three HVAC upgrades you may not have known about until right now:
Depending on the layout of your home or business, as well as its number of occupants, using an HVAC unit to heat or cool the entire building may not be very efficient. For example, if you live in a two-story home where everyone sleeps upstairs, it makes sense to only heat or cool the second floor at night. A conventional HVAC system doesn't allow for this, but a zoned HVAC system will, resulting in energy cost savings.
Switching to a geothermal HVAC system isn't the easiest or the cheapest, but it will provide the most energy efficient heating and cooling available. Depending on the building, climate and existing HVAC system, a geothermal system can save home and business owners up to 50% on their heating and cooling costs. To make things even better, the waste heat generated when the geothermal system cools your home can heat your water. This means you'll also save money on your hot water usage.
Even better than programmable thermostats, smart thermostats allow users to adjust settings on their thermostat from their smartphone. So as long as you have a data connection, you can operate your thermostat as if you were standing in front of it. And depending on the exact model, the thermostat can learn from how the users adjust it. Eventually, it will know how to program its own settings!
