High-efficiency HVAC systems let you spend less on energy bills and more on the things that matter most to you. If you’re wondering if you’ll have to sacrifice your comfort to save money, don’t worry! The same features that allow heating and cooling systems to operate more efficiently make them perform better too. Here are two advanced technologies that make an energy-saving HVAC system a terrific value.
2-Stage Compressors in HVAC Systems
When it comes to cooling your home or business in northwestern Florida, the compressor plays a primary role. It pumps refrigerant between the evaporator and the condenser to chill the indoor air. Conventional compressors operate at one speed, no matter how much cooling is needed. You have to wait in discomfort for your air conditioner or heat pump to reach the desired temperature. Dual-stage compressors vary the speed automatically to maintain a comfortable temperature:
- Two-stage compressors run on the low setting around 80 percent of the time, saving you money on energy costs.
- Longer cooling cycles allow HVAC units to extract more moisture from the air for better humidity control.
- Operating on the low setting reduces wear on the compressor, so it works better and lasts longer.
Variable Speed Motors
Whether you have a furnace, heat pump or air conditioner, the blower motor powers the fans in your heating or cooling system. With a traditional system, the blower is either off or on, resulting in intermittent blasts of warmed or cooled air. Variable-speed blower motors keep the air moving, so you enjoy a consistently comfortable environment. They operate more quietly too!
