Heating and air-conditioning systems last year ate up nearly 625 billion killowatt-hours of electricity. That’s about 45 percent of all electric power used in America’s 114 million homes. Add in the additional systems that use oil and gas furnaces and 56 percent of all household energy goes toward heating and cooling. Bronco Renewable Energy Solutions has the keys to halting your residential HVAC energy waste in Texas.
The sheer amount of energy used through HVAC systems is massive, but the problematic area is in the waste. These millions of heating and A/C units generally operate at about a third below established efficiency standards, wasting 212 billion killowatt-hours annually.
Broken down further, HVAC energy waste is at least five times more than the combined use of all other electric devices in the average home, and can be as high as 20 times more. Our Fort Worth renewable energy experts have the solutions you need to save money, and help protect our resources as well.
However, solar/thermal heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, like other solar technologies, cheaply and efficiently transform energy from the sun into power, in this instance, for space heating and cooling. Current cutting-edge products are highly reliable with an expected life span of decades.
Adding in state and federal tax credits and incentives, the payback for such a system can be as short as 4 to 5 years. Texans who opt for solar/ thermal HVAC are automatically eligible for a tax credit of 30 percent of the system’s cost. Additionally, some power companies are offering their own rebates for installing energy-efficient systems.
