File Size: 5.97 Mb

Research conducted by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has shown that Americans can significantly improve the energy efficiency, safety, and comfort of their homes while reducing emissions and utility bills. Studies show that upgrading a home’s heating and cooling equipment can reduce energy use by up to 20% or more, depending on the condition of the existing systems. Similar savings may be realized by improving the distribution efficiency of the heating and cooling systems.

This guide, which is part of a series of Best Practices guides produced by DOE’s Building America program, describes ways homeowners can reduce their energy costs and improve the comfort, health, and safety of their homes by upgrading their heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment. A variety of types of heating and cooling equipment are described. The references throughout this document provide additional information about important aspects of residential HVAC.

The recommendations provided here are primarily based on the results of research and demonstration projects conducted by DOE’s Building America research teams. Building America collaborates with building scientists, researchers, and more than 300 home builders across the country with the goal of constructing homes that are safer and more energy-efficient, comfortable, and durable, with low or no additional cost.
