It is no mystery that many residents throughout California are always looking for ways to be more energy-efficient and eco-friendly. Thankfully, modern technology has advanced to help with these goals. Newer air conditioners are becoming more energy-efficient all the time. If you haven’t updated the AC unit in your home and you are hoping to do so soon, now is a great time to do so, especially if you are considering the use of a heat pump.
Thanks to the TECH Clean California incentives program, residents in California may be able to save even more money when they upgrade their air conditioners. Read on to learn more about this program and how we can help get your next system installed.
What is the TECH Clean California Program?
The key goal of TECH Clean California is to make it easier to install heat pump technology into homes throughout California in order to help the state achieve its goal of becoming carbon-neutral by 2045. This is good for people like you because the program helps to make heat pump installations more affordable. When you work with contractors enrolled in the program, like California Indoor Comfort Inc., you’ll benefit from reduced costs for your heat pump installation. That means when you work with our team to upgrade to a heat pump, you’ll enjoy better savings on your new systems to start and then increased savings on your energy bill for years to come.
What are the perks of a heat pump?
Perhaps you are wondering what the real benefit is of upgrading to a heat pump. Is it really worth it? We’d say that it absolutely is!
Heat pump technology is now known to be highly energy-efficient and still be just as effective as other types of comfort systems. These types of systems are becoming more popular very rapidly because of the many advantages they offer:
- They take up less space. Heat pumps are often smaller than other central AC systems and can offer side-discharge set-ups, making them ideal for zero-lot lines.
- They can provide comfort year-round. Heat pumps can reverse their flow of refrigerant, allowing them to both heat and cool your home. This means you can enjoy the work of two systems wrapped up into one.
- They are all-electric. This is especially advantageous if you are looking to reduce your natural gas use. Heat pumps can make heat without burning gas.
- They can be ductless. You can opt for a ductless heat pump system if you have a home that can’t accommodate ductwork. This will offer far better comfort than a window AC unit and a space heater.
How much energy does a heat pump help you save?
The average heat pump boasts a SEER rating that can be up in the 20s. This is far better than the systems that offered a SEER rating of 10 in years past. For reference, upgrading a system with a 10 SEER rating to a system with a 14 can save you up to $100 a year. Imagine what a bigger jump can do to your energy usage and your bills.
