What Are The Most Energy-Efficient HVAC Systems?

HVACs That Make Your Home More Efficient

It's no secret that HVAC systems use a lot of energy. In fact, they are often the biggest consumers of electricity in a home. This is why, when it's time to choose a new system, energy efficiency is key! In this blog, the AWS Plumbing, Heating & Cooling team will discuss two highly efficient HVAC systems: geothermal and ductless mini-splits.

Geothermal Systems

Geothermal systems are one of the most efficient HVAC options on the market. Instead of relying on propane or fuel oil, they work by using the natural heat to warm your home in the winter and cool it in the summer. This natural heat can either come from the earth beneath your home or a nearby water source, the former is known as a closed loop system, and the latter is known as an open loop system.

Geothermal systems can save you between 50-70% on your energy bill, making them a great choice for anyone looking to save money and be more energy-efficient.

Ductless Mini-Splits

Ductless mini-splits are another efficient HVAC option that has become increasingly popular amongst homeowners. These systems don't waste energy creating heat. Instead, they remove heat from surrounding air, process it with coolant, and deliver it into your home.

Mini-splits provide heating and cooling directly to the rooms in your home, rather than using ductwork. By eliminating this ductwork, you cut down on warm and cool air loss, which lowers your overall energy costs. Ductless mini-splits are also very quiet, small, and are easier to install than other systems, making them a great unobtrusive option.
