Energy Efficient Technology Helps Environment and Owners

The news about environmental pollutants, disasters and the greenhouse effect is increasing in frequency, but so is the rate of innovation with energy efficient technology. The use of clean and efficient energy systems can provide a solution to the impactful issue of environmental pollutants, and save home and business owners on energy costs. At the top of energy efficient technology is solar PV panels. Switching to solar energy power as an alternative energy solution for our every day needs can dramatically offset the negatives effects of fossil fuels, create independence from utility companies, and lower energy costs.

In addition to solar power, there are several more clean energy technologies that are helping the environment and saving home and business owners on energy costs:

Ultra Efficient Heat Pump Systems

The next generation of heat pump systems can reduce energy consumption as much as 30 – 45%. There will be several options for owners to chose from including fuel-fired multi-function residential heat pump, low-cost gas heat pump, natural gas heat pump and air conditioner.

 

Smart Thermostats

High tech thermostats automatically adjust room temperatures based on the individual’s lifestyle. The owner simply enables the thermostat’s settings to accommodate their comfort level and schedule, and high-tech sensors and algorithms will automatically adjust temperatures per those settings. Smart thermostats can also integrate weather fluctuations to insure your space is kept at pre set temperatures. This saves owners on energy costs, and allows for hands-free heating and cooling operation.

 

Carbon Fighting Heat Dryers

The same technological advances for next generation heat pump systems are being to create energy efficient heat dryers that will reduce energy consumption up to 60%. The dryer is fueled by a heat pump cycle that generates hot air to dry your clothes.

 

Next Generation Insulation

Keep your home insulted to it’s maximum capacity can save residential owners big on energy costs. New environmentally friendly foam has been developed that is made from composited materials and insures heat or cool air will no escape during peak seasons.

Energy Star: Tax Rebates for Residential Energy Efficiency

If you are looking to upgrade your home’s functionality, comfort, or to just be more energy efficient, now is the time to take advantage of all the great energy tax rebates available to homeowners. Here is some information from our team at Action Air to get you on your way to maximum savings while adding value to your home.

The Deal with Energy Star

The federal tax incentive program for Energy Efficient residential & commercial properties is known as Energy Star. The program was established by the Environmental Protection Agency in 1992, and was created to encourage homeowners to conserve more energy, in turn lowering US dependence on fossil fuels. Not only can energy efficient improvements give homeowners more independence from utility companies, energy efficient appliances and systems help the environment and significantly save homeowners on energy costs. Energy Star estimated that it saved homeowners $17 billion in 2009, and avoided greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to 30 million cars.

Several tax incentives for residential energy efficiency have been renewed for 2016 and can even apply retroactively for purchases made in 2015. You can receive up to 30% back on residential energy efficiency improvements. The program encourages new home construction to integrate smart technology, green appliances, and other energy conserving infrastructures to the build-out plan, which will actually save the new homeowner long term.

How to Qualify for Tax Rebates

If you are looking to replace any of the following residential products or systems, you can qualify for the tax rebates:

  • Biomass stoves
  • Heating, venting, air conditioning, including:
