Eco-Friendly HVAC Options

A person is holding a pine tree sprig in their hand.

In recent years, more individuals and businesses are seeking ways to positively impact the environment. One way this can be achieved is by upgrading your HVAC system to an eco-friendly and energy-efficient model. At Henry, we are proud to offer Bryant high-efficiency heating and cooling systems. These systems will help save the Earth and your wallet!

Financial Benefits of Eco-Friendly HVAC Systems

Did you know heating and cooling costs account for about half a typical home’s energy usage? This is why more homeowners are turning to eco-friendly and high-efficiency systems to reduce energy consumption. Examples of potential financial benefits include:

  • Federal Tax Credits: The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 includes tax credits for homeowners that purchase certain ENERGY STAR® certified HVAC equipment.
  • Energy Savings: When you use less energy to run your system, you can save money on your energy bills.
  • Better Warranties: These systems may offer longer-component warranties.
  • ENERGY STAR® Rebates: ENERGY STAR® also offers rebates on some products. You can search their database here.

Heating & Cooling Swaps That Help You Save Energy

When choosing a new heating or cooling system, here are some options to consider that will help your home become more energy-efficient:

  • Replace your electric furnace with a high-efficiency heat pump
  • Purchase a Smart thermostat to better regulate usage
  • Replace an electric baseboard with a ductless heat pump
  • Seal and insulate your ductwork

Heat Pumps for Energy-Efficiency

Investing in a heat pump is a great way for homeowners to save money and energy. A heat pump works by transferring heat from one place to another, utilizing a refrigerant cycle to cool a space by moving heat outside (during warm months) or to heat a space by drawing warmth from outdoors (during colder months), even in low temperatures.

This process is more eco-friendly compared to traditional heating or cooling systems because it uses less electrical energy for operation, significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, many modern heat pumps use refrigerants that have lower environmental impacts, further enhancing their eco-friendliness.

Bryant Heat Pumps for Residential Use

Bryant offers multiple heat pumps for homeowners to consider including:

Eco-Friendly Plumbing Products

At Henry Heating, Cooling, and Plumbing, we also offer environmentally-friendly plumbing solutions. We are proud to provide homeowners with Rheem Super High Efficiency Tankless Water Heaters.

How Do Tankless Water Heaters Work?

Tankless water heaters, also known as on-demand water heaters, heat water directly without the need for a storage tank. When a hot water tap is turned on, cold water travels through a pipe into the unit, where a gas burner or electric element heats the water. This means hot water is available almost instantly and continuously, eliminating the wait time for a storage tank to fill up and heat. This efficiency reduces energy consumption, making them more eco-friendly compared to traditional tank water heaters.
