Shutting off the lights and turning off the water are simple ways to save money and “go green.” But an increasing number of homeowners are taking it a step further. When Jon Langford built his Anglo Caribbean white stucco home in Davidson two years ago, he tried to incorporate technologies that would maintain comfortable temperatures as efficiently as possible.

Throughout the 5,700-square-foot home, “We installed good quality windows with overhangs to shade direct sun exposure,” says Langford. “We also have an automated climate system zoned into several areas. It adjusts the temperature at night or while we’re away and makes it easy to heat and cool just the parts of the house that we’re using.”

But the greatest impact to Langford’s energy bills came after he reinsulated his home. After interviewing three companies, he chose EnergyOne of the Carolinas, a spray foam insulation contractor located in Charlotte. Owner Stephen Davis explains why the option is so effective. “Spray foam creates an air barrier,constructing a complete sealed home envelope, so the HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard…”

If you are looking for one of the ultimate “green” technologies to heat and cool your home, look no further than the Earth. Water furnace geothermal heating and cooling systems use the constant temperature of the Earth as an energy source to heat and cool your home. Ross and Witmer, one of Charlotte’s premier heating and cooling firms, is a pioneer in the installation of this cutting edge technology.

“Geothermal heat pumps are able to tap into the free energy source that lies right below the Earth’s surface,” said Clay Phillips, the company president. “They are similar to ordinary heat pumps but use the ground instead of outside air to provide heating, air conditioning and, in most cases, an added benefit of free hot water.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, because these systems use the Earth’s natural heat, they are among the most efficient and comfortable heating and cooling technologies currently available. Added Phillips, “A traditional air source heat pump may achieve 175 to 250% efficiency, but geothermal heat pumps can achieve 400 to 600% efficiency…”
