Energy Efficiency and More
Over the last 80 years, we’ve been able to help customers find new and creative ways to reduce their energy consumption. We would love to talk with you about how we can work together to increase the energy efficiency of your home’s equipment. Call us today to talk with one of our friendly and knowledgeable Comfort Advisors if you’ve started to notice a sudden increase in your utility bills.
Having a good thermostat is another way that you can potentially improve the energy efficiency of your home’s air conditioning and heating system. With a SmartPhone Thermostat™, you’ll be able to more accurately control the temperature in your home.
Zone control systems are a terrific way to improve the energy efficiency of your home. Zone control systems separate your home’s heating and air conditioning system into zones. This allows you to only heat or cool a particular zone. This eliminates the waste caused by heating or cooling your entire home. For example, before you go to bed you can set your air conditioning system to only cool your bedroom. This keeps you from having to spend money cooling your entire home when you’re only going to be using your bedroom.
The ducts in your home are like the veins of your air conditioning and heating system. They deliver cool and heated air to each room in your home. However, old and cracked ducts can cause you to lose up to 30% of your heated and cooled air as it travels through the ducts. At Goettl Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we offer complete duct cleaning and duct repair. We can test your ducts to figure out exactly how tight they are and then we can go in and repair and seal them. This can greatly increase the energy efficiency of your home.
While all of the insulation in your home is important, the attic insulation is of particular importance. During the heat, your attic gets extremely hot. If your insulation is rotted, old or thin then that heat can leech into your home. This makes your home hotter than it needs to be and makes your AC system work harder to cool your home. Having good attic insulation keeps that cool air in your home and can potentially reduce the amount of energy that you use to cool your home. Most of us know that heat rises. When you turn on your heater, the heat that enters your home will immediately rise towards your ceiling. The insulation in your attic keeps that heat in your home instead of letting it escape to the outside. Call us today for all your insulation needs.
Heat moves in three different ways: convection, conduction and radiation. During the heat, you probably notice that the upstairs rooms in your home are slightly hotter than the downstairs rooms. This is because of convection and it’s the same reason why water at the top of a pool is warmer than the water at the deep end. Conduction is the movement of heat through materials—like when your spoon heats up after it’s been in a bowl of hot soup. Your home’s insulation is typically designed to resist conduction and convection. Radiant barriers add another layer of insulation that is directly targeted at heat radiation. At Goettl Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we offer complete radiant barrier services including installation, repair and maintenance.
