ENERGY EFFICIENT HVAC COMPONENTS
There are components that have greater energy efficiency than others. Begin with the heating systems: If you are getting a new furnace, get one with a higher energy rating. If you plan to save money, gas powered furnaces are cheap due to the low cost of natural gas. All air systems, be them air source heat pumps or simple gas furnaces have various component parts and rankings which will help you figure out what is best for you.
Another great way to help you save money is by using solar powered fans. This provides great energy efficiency by reducing the power of your heating and cooling system. Your cooling and heating systems can use up to 40% less energy this way, which is great for energy savings.
If your energy management does not include keeping the heating systems warmth inside, then take a look at your insulation. The insulation on the inside and attic insulation are important, but also consider your window insulation and weather stripping.
In the winter, attic insulation may be great to keep the heat in, but in the summer it can also be a damper on keeping your home cool. There are other ways like radiant barriers and attic fans that can keep your energy savings up.

People just want to be comfortable, and so they often are just willing to pay the costs. Most of the time though, there are rooms not being used which causes the electric energy to go up up up. Set your temperature controller up so that if you are downstairs, the upstairs isn't using up unnecessary electric energy.
A zone control system is an amazing temperature controller that also allows you to control the settings of each room. This system allows you to set when and where your electric energy is dispersed for your heating systems. This allows you to even time program your rooms so that it heats and cools at specific times, even if you are not at home. This allows for saving electricity through planned energy management.

Making sure your home system, be it a heat pump or any other HVAC system, stays in good shape is essential. You can reduce the cost of energy and gain possible energy tax credits by keeping your unit well maintained and inspected.
