What is the Best Way to Heat and Cool My Home?

Heating and Cooling Indoors

Depending on where you live, your energy bills may increase during the cooler months. As the demand for hot water and heat increases, so do your bills. With the prices of energy going to increase as well, so does your utility bills. This same holds true during the summer. So, what’s the best way to heat and cool your home without having to overwork your HVAC system and pay a fortune?

Heat Pump

A very resourceful way to enjoy the warm air while saving a few bucks is using a heat pump. A heat pump is a form of renewable energy. It has gained recognition in both commercial and residential buildings. They can heat and cool as well as heat up water. Heat pumps draw in natural heat rather than wasting fossil fuels to produce it.

Fans and Ventilation Systems

Another great way to be more energy efficient is by using your home’s HVAC ventilation systems or fans. These two systems are responsible for moving air into your home. They provide constant freshness without the need of opening a window. There are a lot of options to choose from. We recommend using whole-house fans and passive home ventilation for the best results. If you're still not sure how to maximize your fans, an HVAC professional can help you stay cool and save money.

Evaporative Coolers

This option is best suited for people who live in areas that are both hot and dry. Evaporative coolers are one of the greatest alternatives to air conditioners. They add moisture into the air while lowering the cost of your monthly utility bills. These coolers use moist pads to circulate and cool the air in the surrounding area.
