High-Efficiency Rooftop Furnaces and Air Conditioners
If you are a commercial building owner or manager, going green with your HVAC systems makes good economic sense. Controlling energy costs is just one of the ways that choosing high-efficiency furnace and air conditioning equipment for your property benefits you. Due to the long harsh winters and hot humid summers in Minnesota, lowering heating and cooling costs can result in significant savings. Whether you’re specifying commercial HVAC equipment for a new building or replacing existing units, consider the ways that choosing energy-efficient, green heating and AC systems may repay a higher initial purchase cost over time:
Lower Energy Bills
It’s obvious that a more energy-efficient HVAC equipment will use less gas or electricity to achieve the comfort standards required by your building. A system that is 15% more efficient will save hundreds, even thousands, of dollars every year on your total energy bill.
Although tax credits for green technology vary with time, local, state, and federal tax advantages for investing in high-efficiency commercial furnaces and air conditioners can often completely offset the higher purchase cost of the more efficient equipment.
Today, more and more businesses and consumers take environmental concerns into consideration when selecting which businesses to patronize. What that means for you is higher tenancy rates and attracting additional customers when you go green. You’ll see the results on your bottom line.
In most cases, high-efficiency commercial rooftop furnaces and air conditioners available from manufacturers like Carrier, Goodman, Bryant, Trane, Payne and Lennox are based on better technology and engineering than their less efficient models. Better controls are also part of these systems. Warranties are often longer, too, and they represent the current state of the art. Higher reliability lowers your cost over the lifetime of the equipment, and can reduce repair and maintenance costs.
Elements of Energy-Efficient Buildings
Going green in your commercial building isn’t just a one-time process. While installing high-efficiency heating and cooling units is an important step, there are many other factors to consider:
Overall Building Factors
Aside from energy efficient commercial HVAC equipment, other factors affect your energy budget. Maximizing your energy savings may also include improvements in building energy efficiency. Control of individual zones, removing causes of heat losses, and right-sizing of heating and cooling systems are important factors.
Reducing nitrogen oxide emissions, ending use of ozone-depleting refrigerants, and cutting back on total electrical and fuel usage are important factors in energy-efficient buildings. A formal energy audit is often a good starting point in setting goals for beneficial changes. Current top-of-the-line HVAC systems from Carrier, Bryant, Trane, Goodman and Lennox can help you achieve those goals.
Controlling Your Interior Environment
All business buildings must consider the quality of the inside environment. Air quality, temperature control, and adequate ventilation are all important for your building’s occupants. Your HVAC system is a crucial component in these issues, and current technology now gives you unmatched control over these factors.
