Making the Switch: Energy Efficient HVACs

You might think that pushing your traditional HVAC unit to its maximum capacity is a great way to save money; why spend the money on a new unit when your old one is working perfectly fine? Switching to an energy efficient HVAC unit can save you money, lower your environmental impact, and increase health benefits.

44% of your building’s generated energy is generated by HVAC and refrigeration. An energy efficient HVAC unit can result in a cost savings by up to 52%, which easily sets off the cost of upgrading your unit.

The National Institute of Building Sciences found that the typical payback period for a high-efficiency commercial system is just three to five years; this is significantly shorter than traditional HVAC systems. This number is based on conventional comfort levels throughout the year.  

Lifetime Savings
With energy efficient commercial HVAC equipment, owners will see a 30% reduction in annual energy costs during a payback period of three to five years. If you extend that payback period to seven years, owners can reach an energy savings level of 40% or more. Investing in energy efficient equipment is a great way to streamline your commercial building’s budget.  

Environmental Impact
Older HVAC units are environmental nightmares, and with environmental regulations growing more stringent, it’s important for commercial building owners to think about long-term sustainability. Energy efficient HVAC units can lower your building’s carbon footprint while complying with environmental regulations.

Health Benefits
According to the EPA, indoor air quality is one of the top five risks to public health. If you leave your HVAC system unchecked, bacteria, mold, pollen, viruses, and other biological contaminations can grow — contaminations that you then breathe in. Upgrading to a high-efficiency HVAC system can reduce or even eliminate the growth and distribution of airborne contaminants thanks to better filtration, eradication, and anti-microbial technology.
