Green Technologies

polar-bear-green-technologiesNow is the BEST time to update your heating and air conditioning systems with high efficiency equipment … or you might consider installing an alternative HVAC solution with geothermal, solar, or hybrid systems. You’ll lower your energy costs and reduce the harmful emissions produced from older, less efficient equipment.

The choices we make every day can save energy and improve the environment. According to the US Department of Energy, America needs cleaner, more diverse energy supplies to meet demand, address climate change, and reduce dependence on foreign sources.

Did you know that the US is the world’s single largest contributor to global warming, with the average annual emissions of 19.6 tons per person? WHEW! That’s nearly five times the world average of 3.9 tons per person. The impacts of climate change are too great to ignore, and we must do everything in our power to protect our future.

Let’s join together to do our part in saving our planet!

GEOTHERMAL TECHNOLOGY: Plug into planet earth!

Homeowners across North America are searching for better ways to get more out of their energy dollar. Many have found that a geothermal heat pump can help. Geothermal energy not only costs less to operate than any other heating and cooling system, but it also helps preserve our natural resources and lessens our dependency on fossil fuels.

A Geothermal heat pump or “ground-source” heat pump only uses electricity to operate equipment. Water is used as the heat transfer medium and the earth supplies the clean renewable energy. In the winter heat is extracted from the ground and moved to your home. In the summer the process is reversed and indoor heat is absorbed from your home and transferred to the mild temperature of the earth.

For every one unit of energy purchased to operate a geothermal unit, it delivers four to five units of energy and the energy from the earth is free. In many scenarios, a geothermal system is significantly less expensive to operate than ordinary heating and cooling systems. Geothermal systems can save up to 70% in heating costs, up to 50% in cooling costs, and around 30% – 50% in hot water costs.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Geothermal systems are “the most energy-efficient, environmentally clean, and cost effective space conditioning system s available today”. The U.S. department of Energy (DOE) predicts that electricity priced will remain stable over the next twenty years, allowing some increase for inflation. Fuel oil, natural gas, and propane gas have begun rising at a much higher rate. Geothermal technology is a great solution to global warming and high energy costs.

HYBRID SOLUTIONS: Heat Pumps

Hybrid Heating Systems are more comfortable. They use electric heat pumps during cool weather and furnaces during extreme temperatures. Heat pumps deliver a consistent “mellow” heat that many people prefer. Furnaces by contrast, deliver intermittent blasts of hot air during mild weather.

Of course, when it gets really cold, a furnace is needed to provide the toasty feeling of the higher temperature air a furnace provides. Hybrid heating systems use each type of heating technology when appropriate to deliver all-season comfort.

During moderate weather, electric heat pumps are more economical to operate than furnaces. As the temperature drops, the furnace takes over and maintains your home at a preset comfort level. Because a heat pump also provides cool, indoor comfort when it’s hot outside, a Hybrid Heat System is truly a year-round comfort solution. Wilson Brothers often recommends the Bryant Hybrid Heat System with a 13 – 20 SEER rating and a choice of programmable thermostats.

A hybrid heating system can save between 30% and 50% on energy costs. All-season comfort and energy savings – a win-win!

SOLAR ENERGY: Solar Thermal Technology

The life-giving sun provides us with the fuel of the future – today! Energy, which you can now utilize easily and conveniently with a Solar Heating System, whether to enjoy a warm shower or to boost your central heating.

Roof mounted solar collectors are architecturally attractive and are designed to install easily no matter what style of roof your home may have. Seamlessly integrated with a hot water system and/or boiler, a Solar Heating System maintains high efficiency year round. Wilson Brothers installs solar technology from Buderus and Viessmann. Our technicians will recommend the system best for your home and family.
