Sustainable heating solutions
The Residential/Commercial sectors are among the sectors with high demand for efficient hvac systems. For one, these sectors make use of heating and cooling systems regularly, and their carbon footprints are by far greater compared to the other sectors that make use of those systems during specific periods only.
These sectors have to minimize their consumption of energy in order to lessen their carbon footprints. But if that seems impossible because of the high demand for energy these days even in the ordinary household, they can at least subscribe to an efficient energy management system.
The use of renewable and alternative sources of energy can minimize carbon emissions of Residential/Commercial users. The simple act of using hvac systems already requires energy, so if you can use alternative energy to cool or heat your homes, then that would be good both for your wallet and Mother Earth.
Many green technologies are being offered but can you sustain them? The secret to successfully using an energy management system is its sustainability. Check out some of these alternative sources of energy you can use for your requirements.
Some people could not believe that solar energy can be harnessed to run the water and air source heat pump in countries with cold climates like Canada. One could not really blame them as this is an alternative energy source commonly heard of only in tropical countries. The secret to harnessing this technology is in choosing the right company to do the job. There is a new solar panel technology that is more reliant on light absorption and not on endless days of sun. This technology is effective and can provide water to your homes and offices the whole year round, even if you get cloudy days all the time.
So how do solar panels work?
Your existing water heater system will work with the solar panels. But with up to 70% of your hot water supply provided by the solar panels, you can expect a significant reduction in your next energy bills. However, you need to make some adjustments in your homes including the construction of insulation materials for your walls. Make sure to consider the local laws and regulations before installing your solar panels.
Solar-powered water heating systems can help you optimize your energy management strategy. Fort one, it can be the source of up to a third of your hot water requirements for the year. By sourcing all of your hot water requirements from the solar heater, you would be able to cut by around 580 kilograms your yearly carbon emissions. Your hvac systems can be installed or upgraded to work with alternative energy sources. Ask a reputable company like Hamilton Industries, Ltd. about that possibility.
Another energy management strategy you can implement is the use of biomass to power your energy requirements. Biomass is energy sourced from plants including grass, agriculture residues and food crops, and which can be stored and converted into electricity. This alternative energy source can be used to power the heating and cooling systems of Residential/Commercial sectors.
Biomass is already widely used all over the world because of its sustainability and capability of lowering energy consumption and expenses. It is also an ideal way of reducing your carbon footprints. It is already being touted as a sustainable way of managing climate change. The use of biomass as an effective energy management tool is sustainable as it can be sourced locally. Any community can produce biomass for their hvac systems.
