GRAPEVINE, Texas, March 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- You wouldn't buy a car that got five miles per gallon no matter how inexpensive it was, but every day homebuyers make purchasing decisions based exclusively on a home's "sticker price."
As many lenders are starting to recognize, the cost of home ownership is more than just the mortgage payment. Home owners need to consider insurance, upkeep, taxes and, of course, the energy cost to fuel the home.
So whether you are shopping for a home, or already own one, consider the average home's energy bill can exceed $2,200 per year and the HVAC system can generate as much as 50% of the total energy costs.
Be Comfortable and Have More Cash.
Shopping for a new home is the perfect time to compare energy efficiency features, and for the biggest savings, look to the HVAC system. Your new home should have a higher SEER rated system, but new technology can offer much more than that.
Advector Systems has developed a fully wireless and automated residential zoning system that puts you in control of your energy usage and comfort. The wireless Select Air System extends the reach of the thermostat to every room of the house.
"Not only will you be able to set different temperatures in every room for added comfort, but you will be able to limit wasted energy associated with heating and cooling empty rooms," explained Boris Medic, Advector System Managing Director and Select Air System Designer.
You don't have to buy a new home to get the benefits.
"One of the major advantages of a wireless system is the installation costs. Typical zoning systems could take days to install and cost thousands in electrical and structural rework," said Shawn Grennan, Advector Systems Managing Director. "Our Select Air System can be installed in only a few hours, making it easily one of the most pocket savvy systems available."
The Select Air System utilizes energy harvesting techniques and RF communications to install quickly without wires to make it a perfect solution for existing homes. In both new home construction and remodeling applications, the Select Air System can provide HVAC energy savings of up to 40%.
