It’s time to make a green change with your commercial HVAC system! If you’ve been considering updating your old HVAC, green technology may be the best choice for you. Along with offering innovative, cost-saving benefits, green HVAC systems offer the advantage of making a great impression on consumers. The average savings after making the switch to a green option reaches several thousand a year. Additionally, you may qualify for tax breaks and might be able to take advantage of community incentives. As cities across the nation take action to create a more sustainable economy, many are offering assistance to companies making green updates.
Along with the primary economic benefits, consumers are more likely to take note of your business if you advertise the changes. Many consumers are looking to support companies that have a lower environmental impact. Your current customers are likely to approve of the change, and the updates may help bring in new consumers too! With all of these advantages in mind, let’s take a look at some of the potential for green HVAC technology.
Make Way For Solar
Solar has come a long way in the last ten years, and in the world of HVAC, it’s a great option thanks to its versatility. Solar has a reputation for being expensive to install and not being the most attractive. However, these issues are both easily solvable. Along with quickly paying for themselves, solar is often highly incentivized by way of tax breaks and rebates. The appearance of solar has also come a long way; most businesses will find they have a space where the panels can be installed without being too obvious.
Give GeoThermal A Chance
Thanks to its geographic location, Iceland has an advantage when it comes to geothermal heating and cooling, but that doesn’t mean US-based companies should rule geothermal out completely. Even in the US, the temperature a few feet below ground remains consistent. An HVAC system can take advantage of this by piping fluid through underground pipes and carrying it up through the building to help create a comfortable, sustained temperature. This system uses electricity but is highly efficient.
Ice-Cooled HVAC Units
As a newer development, ice-cooled HVAC units only work for air conditioning, but they offer a unique option. The unit freezes water at night which is then used to cool the air pumped through the system during the day. This allows for a low-electricity using system that is likely to become very popular as the technology advances.
