What is the Most Efficient Residential HVAC System?

Heating your home can be a tricky task, especially when it comes to finding the most energy efficient HVAC system. Heat pumps, both geothermal and air source, and furnaces are currently the most efficient options. Heat pumps are also a great way to cool your home in the summer. Geothermal heat pumps use renewable heat from the earth to produce effective and efficient heating, and they pay for themselves more quickly in very hot and humid climates.

Cold climates are also ideal for geothermal heat pumps. In moderate climates, however, geothermal energy may not be cost-effective. Mini-split heat pumps require very little electricity to operate and are more cost-effective in hot and warm climates. Newer units can even work effectively in very cold climates without needing electrical backup heat.

However, these heat pumps can be quite expensive. Gas ovens are not as efficient as heat pumps, but newer models contain technologies and features that can increase efficiency significantly. A superefficient air conditioner costs 20-50% more than a moderately efficient single or two-stage air conditioner. The most efficient heating system for your home is the one that reduces energy consumption in the most cost-effective and realistic way.

Masters Heating & Cooling sells and services some of the best and most efficient central air conditioning systems on the market, such as the Lennox XC25 with a SEER rating of 26. Boilers can also provide comfortable and fairly efficient heating. In addition to purchasing the most efficient heating system within your budget, you can improve indoor comfort and equipment performance by considering external factors that can improve air conditioning efficiency. Inverter compressors in variable capacity units are making heat pumps even more efficient, and some new units are capable of providing sufficient heat at temperatures well below freezing. More than 50% of homes are still heated with a gas oven, an impressive figure considering the most efficient heating systems available.

For some, efficiency is a top priority due to cooling costs being reduced by 40% or more in many cases.
