The old air conditioning in your home may be outdated and need replacing. Some of the options you may be considering are just replacing the old unit with a new one, or you may be looking into newer technologies. This can be systems that use geothermal energy or solar to heat and cool your home. You may also be considering things like ductless AC and improved ventilation. Here are some new technologies that will help make your AC more energy efficient:
1. A Practical And Energy Efficient Solution With Ductless AC
If you want to completely replace the ductwork in your home, a ductless AC can be a good choice to replace your old system. Since there is less work involved installing these systems, it may cost less than having a conventional system installed. This can also be good for homes that have radiant heating and do not have existing HVAC ductwork. They can also provide your home with heating through a heat pump for an all-in-one heating and cooling solutions for your home.
2. Supplementing AC Energy With Solar Panels For Power
Another option that you may want to consider for your AC is integrating solar or wind energy to power your AC. This can be in the form of small units that help supplement the conventional AC system and reduce energy consumption. For smaller homes, you may be able to use the solar power to completely cool your home. Another solution can be to use the solar panels to power a ventilation system that helps to keep your home cool.
3. Make Your HVAC More Efficient With A Geothermal System
Geothermal energy is another option that you may want to consider for your home. This type of system can help to provide your home with heating and cooling, which is done through a geothermal ground loop that provides the system with a consistent ground temperature that does not vary much all year. This helps the system use less energy to keep your home comfortable. This can be a good solution if you want to have a more conventional system and reuse some of the materials from the old system like ductwork.
These are some of the options you may want to consider to add energy efficient technology to your AC replacement. If it is time to have your outdated air conditioner replaced, contact an HVAC contractor (such as one from American Independent Heating & Air Conditioning) and talk with them about some of these technologies for your home.Share

Hi there, my name is Shelley. Welcome to my site about electric heating systems. Electric heat has recently fallen out of favor due to the efficiency of natural gas systems. Electric heat is still suitable for small buildings that do not need the high temps provided by upgraded systems. I will use this site to explore all of the building types that can benefit from electric heating systems. I will also share information about system components, installations and repairs. I welcome you to come by often to learn more about this exciting topic. Thanks for coming by. See you soon.
