Energy Star/High Efficiency Equipment
In a world of limited energy resources, energy efficiency is our best hope for tomorrow. To encourage energy efficiency in a wide range of heating and cooling products and systems, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) operates the Energy Star Program. Energy Star helps home builders and owners identify heating and cooling equipment and components which reduce utility expense and relieve the earth's burden of pollution. Replacing old cooling and heating equipment with more efficient, Energy Star qualified equipment is one way to save energy and money. However, your home's heating and cooling equipment is part of a larger system. Heating and cooling your home smartly can include properly maintaining your existing equipment, using a programmable thermostat, finding and sealing air leaks, tightening up your ducts, and more. Changing out old cooling and heating equipment with Energy Star qualified models can cut your annual energy costs by 20%.
