CenterPoint Home Energy Program


HVAC

According to Energy Star, heating and cooling costs the average homeowner about $1,000 a year – nearly half the home's total energy bill. If your central air conditioning unit is more than 12 years old, replacing it with an ENERGY STAR qualified model could cut your cooling costs by 30%. Earning the ENERGY STAR means products meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). By choosing ENERGY STAR certified heating and cooling equipment and taking steps to optimize its performance, you can enhance the comfort of your home while saving energy. Saving energy helps you save money on utility bills and protect our climate by helping prevent harmful carbon pollution and reducing other greenhouse gases.

When shopping for units, bigger isn't better! Output is measured by the ton and residential systems are typically between 1 and 5 tons. An oversized system wastes money and materials initially and then operates wastefully, because heating and cooling equipment is most efficient when operating at full capacity and for extended periods of time- it does a better job of dehumidifying (getting the moisture out of the air).

How to fight against poor indoor air quality at home:

Product Highlights:

Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) zoning is an energy-efficient method of providing precise comfort control to indoor environments. VRF offers a wide variety of applications - everything from spot-cooling or -heating a single room in a home (using a split-ductless system) to a large commercial building with multiple floors and areas (that require individual comfort control delivered by a split-zoning system).

VRF moves refrigerant to the zone to be heated or cooled, allowing the temperature of that area to be more precisely controlled. It can simultaneously cool some zones while heating other areas or just provide comfort control to zones that are in use. (Zones are single or multiple room spaces that are conditioned to a set temperature and are operated independently from other rooms within the same structure.)

Ductless systems provide more building design flexibility and result in more usable space. Ducted systems allow you to combine multiple rooms into a single zone. Unlike other VRF systems, Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating uses a two-pipe design which reduces the complexity, time and cost of installation with fewer refrigerant lines and connections.

INVERTER Compressor technology is highly responsive and efficient. The technology allows for compact, quiet units, flexibility of placement and gives architects and owners more design freedom with Integrated, simple to use controls.
