Going green is an important movement that we at Rusk Heating & Cooling take very seriously. While modern air conditioning systems are more efficient than ever, the same can’t be said for all heating systems.
Mother Nature Network explains:
Heating … wasn’t blessed with the same running start, technology wise, as cooling given that home heating at its core is a much more primal concept. Think of it this way: Which came first, the humble wood-burning stove or the window unit? Fire or Freon?
But that’s not to say there hasn’t been any progress. Advancements and upgrades can help reduce the environmental impacts of oil- and gas-based heating systems.
Here are some ways home heating is becoming more environmentally-friendly:
Geothermal heating– Geothermal renewable energy draws warmth from the Earth, which maintains a moderately warm temperature year-round. Rusk Heating & Cooling offers geothermal heating to provide your family the perfect indoor environment, while protecting our natural environment. Moreover, this type of heating and cooling system can reduce your heating and cooling costs by as much as 60 percent!
Heat pumps– This technology makes electric heating more energy efficient. Heat pumps provide two to three times more heating than the equivalent amount of energy they consume in electricity. In the winter, it takes heat from outside and moves it indoors.
