Old homes come with plenty of charm and memories. But if you haven’t been upgrading your air conditioning system, that could be one of the reasons why your home’s heating and electric bills are costing you a lot. If you’re looking for a way to lower your energy consumption expenses, think about going for an HVAC update.
Energy drain costs
Old homes can experience 25 percent more in energy drain costs, compared to new homes. That’s money you could spend elsewhere. By finding ways to counter the energy drain, you can successfully lower your heating and electricity bills.
If your HVAC system is old, then it’s probably not as energy-efficient as it should be. That could be contributing a lot to your household’s rising energy bills. If you keep on using an old and inefficient system, then you’re only throwing money out the window.
If you haven’t been getting the best sleep in the past few weeks or months because your HVAC keeps acting up, then you may be better off stopping spending money on repairs. If your HVAC unit is so old and it’s being held together by ‘spit and prayers’, then it’s time you consider an upgrade.
Getting an upgrade
There are plenty of ways you can get an HVAC upgrade. You can retrofit your existing unit. One way to get that done is to have one of our Coastal retrofit experts to check out your system. We can tell you if retrofit options will still work with your system and if yes, which options will fit the bill. We can also inform you if your system is too old to be retrofitted.
Consider a new heat pump
One of the best ways to upgrade your system is to install a new heat pump. This upgrade can save you as much as 40 to 75 percent of your heating bills every year. That’s an effective way to save on costs. Not only that but BC is offering some exceptional rebates which will save you $1,000’s more when you upgrade to a new energy efficient heat pump.
Shop for quality options
If you’re going to upgrade by installing a new heat pump, make sure you shop for the right one. Price is always a consideration but be sure to pick out quality options that will work for you over the long term. Not all heat pumps are equal. If you want the best cost-savings possible as well as better long-term unit performance, then look for heat pumps from established manufacturers you can trust like Fujitsu.
