• Use programmable thermostats for more precise control
  • Install individual heat controls for every heating zone.
  • Install air-conditioning units away from the sunny side of a building, where they can operate more efficiently
  • Upgrade central HVAC units when it comes time to replace them
  • Install ceiling fans in units to circulate air.
  • Use water-cooled systems as air-cooled HVAC systems use a lot of energy.
  • Look into porous and/or high-albedo (reflective) surfaces that reject solar heat and significantly lower cooling costs if exterior hardscape surfaces need to be replaced
  • Use light-colored, reflective roof coating or materials for any upgrades
  • Consider green roofs (specially designed layers of soil and grass)
  • Consider passive solar energy systems for charging batteries and supplementing a building’s electrical service.
