As the weather outside begins to change, you are thinking about maintenance for AC and heating. Maintenance is one way to reduce energy consumption of your HVAC system, but there are also renewable energy solutions that can help. While your heating is sitting idle during the warm months of the year, you may want to consider improvements with renewable energy to save. Here are some different renewable energy solutions that will help cut your energy costs next winter.
1. Geothermal Exchange Designs That Help Your Mechanical Systems Save Energy
There is a renewable resource HVAC design that has been around for decades and can help reduce the energy consumption of your homes mechanical systems. This is geothermal exchange designs, which can be used by many different mechanical installations in your home, such as the air conditioner, boiler or furnace, and water heaters.

These HVAC designs can be used with many different types of mechanical systems to maximize your energy savings.
2. Reducing the Cost of Heating Your Home by Installing A Biomass Boiler
If you have a radiant heating system, it probably uses a boiler to provide the energy to heat your home and provide you with hot water. The conventional boilers use oil, gas, or electricity, which can make it costly to heat your home during the winter months. Biomass is a renewable resource made from agricultural and forestry waste that costs less than conventional gas and oil, and it can be used to heat your home. If you have an old, outdated system, consider having it replaced with a modern biomass boiler to save energy for your home's hot water and heating needs.
3. Save Energy on Heating and Hot Water with Solar Collectors On Your Roof
Solar energy is a great way to make your home more efficient. Panels can be used to collect solar energy that is then converted into electricity to power your home. In addition to conventional panels, there are also solar collectors that heat water or fluids to provide heat to your home. The solar collectors can be used by furnaces, boilers, and water heaters to help make your home more energy-efficient.
These are some renewable energy solutions to help cut your heating costs. If you need help with improvements to your home's heating, contact a residential heating service and talk with them about some of these energy-efficient solutions.
