Having an Energy Star certified system installed in your Jefferson, Louisiana, home improves energy efficiency because these systems optimize performance and comfort. These guaranteed enhancements will not only save money on your utility bill, but also protect the environment from hazardous carbon pollution and other greenhouse gases. Below are some of the most superior heating models that you should consider.
Electric Air-Source Heat Pumps
The electric air-source heat pump is known for cooling and heating the home efficiently, especially in moderate weather. In fact, it is relatively more energy efficient because it uses five percent less energy than conventional models.
The ductless mini-split system allows homeowners to customize their heating and cooling systems to create different temperatures for each room. These systems allow for multiple thermostats throughout your home, allowing for maximum comfort. Even better, you can access climate control settings from your smartphone or tablet. When compared to traditional HVAC systems, ductless mini-split systems use 60 percent less energy to heat your home and can cut cooling costs by 30 percent.
Energy Star boilers are known for their impressive annual fuel use efficiency (AFUE) ratings. The rating varies by the type of boiler, with oil boilers having an AFUE rating of 87 percent or greater and an AFUE rating of 90 percent or greater for gas boilers. There is also the option of having an electronic ignition installed so that the pilot light will not have to burn all the time.
Energy Star Furnaces
Although average temperatures in Jefferson are relatively warm, the winter chill still requires the use of a furnace. Keep your home comfortable and choose an Energy Star rated furnace for increased efficiency. Homeowners can expect an improvement of up to 11 percent in energy efficiency compared to standard furnace models.
