Whether you own a home in Victorville or operate several commercial properties throughout the High Desert region, chances are you are interested in saving energy. Energy costs are constantly on the rise, making it difficult for many people to make ends meet every month. In addition to cost savings that can be realized through saving energy, these efforts are also good for the environment. At Apple Valley Heating & Air Conditioning, we offer several services that help improve the efficiency of your HVAC system while at the same time helping you to save energy.
Zoning Zoning is the process of dividing an HVAC system into several different zones. These zones are then each controlled by their own thermostat. For instance, the upstairs office of your business could be one zone while the warehouse could have its own zone. This allows you to use heat and air conditioning where you need it and when you need it and does not force you to use energy in unnecessary places. Duct Sealing Duct sealing is a quick fix that provides for significant energy savings. By sealing the air ducts, you will prevent air and heat from escaping the system. Programmable Thermostat A programmable thermostat allows you to customize your furnace and air conditioning settings. For instance, you can set the heat to run at a certain temperature throughout office hours, but program it so the temperature automatically decreases after 5:00 p.m. Heat Pump A heat pump is an alternative to central air conditioning. It can both heat your business and keep it cool, but it works best in climates where the winters are mild. Whole House Humidifier This addition to your HVAC system adds moisture to your home, and allows it to feel warmer during the winter months. It reduces the workload of your furnace, ultimately saving you money in heating bills. If you are interested in one or more of these upgrades to your HVAC system, contact us at Apple Valley Heating & Air Conditioning today. We would be happy to come to your home or place of business to provide you with an estimate.
