With regards to the air conditioning industry, homeowner would like their HVAC system to provide comfort control, energy efficiency, enhance indoor air quality and dependable operations, and today more and more customers are requesting an enviroment friendly system.
New regulations that are in effect today
Today we have a number of changes that are now standard on a new air conditioning system where years ago was considered the Cadillac and would impact a significant additional cost.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Energy Star Program offers homeowners incentives for purchasing products with minimum efficiencies of 13.0 SEER, 11.0 EER or 8.0 HSPF. Additionally, minimum energy standards are changing, too. The U.S. Government has mandated a change in minimum SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) from 10.0 to 13.0 SEER, starting January 23, 2006.
Most air conditioners and heat pumps use a refrigerant known as R-22. Emissions of this refrigerant into the earth's atmosphere are known to deplete the earth's ozone layer that protects all living things from harmful rays from the sun.
Currently, in the U. S. alone, there are over 2,500,000 homes that enjoy comfort as a result of non-ozone depleting R-410A refrigerant in their air conditioners or heat pumps. By choosing higher efficiency equipment that uses R-410A refrigerant, you'll enjoy enhanced comfort, more reliable products, money savings and environmentally sound operation all at once. At the same time, you'll protect yourself from the potentially rising service costs associated with R-22 refrigerant.
R-410A refrigerant is used in residential and light commercial air conditioning and heat pump systems.
Chemically, R-410A refrigerant is an environmentally sound 50/50 blend of two separate refrigerants, R-32 and R-125.
Media Filters combined with Ultraviolet light
UltraViolet Sterilizers, often referred to as UV air purifiers, are used with standard air handlers filters to kill bacteria in the air. These units are mounted in your duct system and kill bacteria as they pass through the light emitted from purifier. It’s important that this equipment be installed correctly for maximum safety and efficiency. These air purifiers provides an extra level of air treatment to improve indoor air quality.
