Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) January 15, 2014
On the heels of Greener Ideal’s January 4th article titled, “How to Heat Your Home with Renewable Energy,” HVAC Education announced its support of renewable energy in the HVAC industry. Arizona HVAC Education encouraged homeowners to consider renewable heating sources in the place of traditional gas and electric options. To do so, HVACED.com recommended that homeowners take a look at all available options, and seek out a licensed professional with HVAC training.
Jeremy Thompson’s Greener Ideal article revealed the number of different ways homeowners can use renewable energy sources to heat their homes. Solar panels are the most commonly known and understood of the available options, but are typically reserved for the southern portion of the United States, as these states are known for their abundant sunshine. Sustainable natural gas, known as biofuel, is another alternative to traditional fuel sources, lowering users’ carbon footprint. Finally, geothermal energy makes use of the near-consistency of ground temperature, using pipes to transfer the natural heat of the ground into one’s home. This particular form of energy requires only the electricity to use the pump, and boasts a 15-year average life span. Thompson also encouraged readers to cut down on energy use altogether, through lowering thermostats and turning all devices off before leaving one’s home.
The Senior Editor of Arizona.HVACED.com can be quoted saying, “In a time where many people are worried about saving money and protecting the environment, we believe that using sources of renewable energy is a fantastic idea. We believe that (in the long run) things like solar panels and biofuels will help save money and mother earth.” HVACED.com knows that the HVAC industry is a large one, encompassing a broad range of equipment and energy sources. Renewable energy equipment installations are among the services offered by many HVAC-trained professionals, and may include the installation of solar panels or geothermal pipes. When considering renewable energy sources, Arizona HVAC Education tells homeowners they must realize that most require an up-front investment greater than a typical installation and equipment fee. However, given regular use and the passage of time, HVACED.com says that renewable energy sources typically pay for themselves in reduced energy bills. To learn more about local renewable energy options, HVACED.com recommends contacting a professional with HVAC training and a background working in renewable energy.
