Energy Star promotes energy efficiency in residential heat pumps, air conditioning units and thermostats, among other products. Today, protecting the environment is among the top priorities of the government and us, as consumers. If you’re concerned about protecting the environment for future generations, take a moment to learn how you can make a difference.
When evaluating your home heating and air conditioning options, efficiency and cost savings are a top priority. One of the best ways a homeowner can help to protect the environment is by using energy efficient products in your home that require fewer energy resources to operate. It’s important to remember that a higher efficiency rating in air conditioners and heat pumps usually equates to a higher initial cost for equipment, but lower long-term energy costs and a greater savings overall. Living in our hot and humid climate, you can expect to realize a cost-payback through lower utility bills in just a few short years. Not only will you make a difference by helping preserve our environment, but you’ll also save on energy costs. It’s a win-win situation.
By choosing to install higher efficient rating air conditioning or heat pump equipment that use Puron refrigerant, you’ll enjoy enhanced comfort, greater reliability through environmentally sound products and increased savings. If you are environmentally conscious, Bryant HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) products can help you realize these savings while using fewer energy resources. Beyond using less energy, Bryant products incorporate Puron refrigerant. Non-ozone-depleting, chlorine-free, environmentally sound and efficient Puron 410-A refrigerant replaces the R-22 refrigerant found in older air conditioning and heat pump systems. R-22 refrigerant is being phased out and is not expected to be available after 2012.
Now through December 31, 2010, if your home qualifies, you can receive an Energy Star stimulus rebate, which when combined with the Federal Tax Credit offered by the U.S. government, will greatly reduce the cost of replacing your home air conditioning or heat pump system. These rebates are offered on a “first come – first served” basis until the rebate fund is exhausted. Funds Are Limited. Don’t Delay!
