Large utility bills in Harrisburg? Turn to our HVAC team for solutions!
With some things, bigger is better. Who doesn’t love a super-size milkshake, for example? But when it comes to your utility bill, that is most definitely not the case. While you might think you need a large HVAC system to keep your home comfortable, our experts at AppleBlossom Energy can help you achieve the comfort you seek without the huge impact to your financial health and that of the planet.
If you’re of the mindset that bigger is better when it comes to HVAC, it’s time to reconsider. The size of your heating and cooling system makes a big difference in the overall efficiency, as well as how much you’ll have to pay every month in bills. When a system is too large, it will use more energy than needed, which could end up costing a fortune every month. On the other hand, a smaller system will have to cycle on and off more frequently, which uses excess energy. You may notice issues with comfort in a home with an improperly sized HVAC system as well since it may not be able to keep up with the needs of the household.
An HVAC contractor should perform a load calculation to determine the right size for the system when performing installation, but not all companies offer this service. In fact, contractors that want to rush through a job or make extra money might deliberately skip this step to charge you more for a larger system. This is an area in which we are different at AppleBlossom Energy. We take a scientific approach to all our actions, so you can have the most energy-efficient HVAC system possible. For example, we do a blower door test to assist with determining the size system you really need. This often tells us you can downsize your current HVAC system without sacrificing comfort.
We prefer to look at the energy efficiency of your home as a whole. We can guarantee you a 20 to 40 percent reduction in your energy costs with a whole-house energy retrofit. We perform an energy audit using infrared testing to determine where you need insulation or sealing services, which we also provide using eco-friendly solutions.
In addition to saving energy, you can feel proud of your reduced environmental impact when you operate your efficient new system. HVAC technology has come a long way over the past few years, with new features and components that will help you save every month. Some of the more efficient models are also eligible for tax credits and rebates, so you might be able to offset some of the installation cost with this benefit.
Our dedication to providing solutions that are more sustainable than what is commonly available has earned us a great reputation within our community. You can feel good about having us take care of the HVAC needs at your Harrisburg, North Carolina home while you enjoy the lower costs involved with a more efficient system.
