Installing a solar-powered HVAC system can dramatically improve the energy efficiency of your home. This system can reduce your energy bill and help the environment, too. The following are four things you may not have known about solar-powered HVAC systems:
Depending on how you install your HVAC and solar system, you may be eligible for federal tax credits. This can reduce the total cost of your solar installation. And depending on your existing heating and cooling system, you may not need to buy a whole new HVAC unit. However, the newer HVAC systems will be more energy efficient, which will allow you to take full advantage of your solar power generating capability.
For most homeowners, their heating and cooling costs make up about half of their total utility bill. By installing solar cells, many homes can power their entire heating and cooling system from solar energy alone. Often, there is a surplus amount of energy generated by the solar cells which can fulfill a home's other electrical needs. In some cases, the utility company might purchase the surplus from you.
Having a solar-powered HVAC system rarely requires major modifications. The solar cells don't always require installation on your home or business's roof. And should you choose to expand your solar array, it's usually rather easy to do.
By installing a solar generation system in your home or business, you will usually have technology that allows you to monitor your energy use. Knowing how you use energy can help you adjust and use that energy more efficiently.
