At Bud's, we care about the Environment
We recycle everything we can. From the cardboard our equipment is packaged in to the paper used by our office staff, the sheet metal scraps used in our ductwork, even the soda cans we drink from during our lunch breaks! We also donate our wood pallets to keep them out of the waste stream. All of our field employees are certified in the safe handling and reclamation of R-22 and 410-A refrigerant.
We offer and encourage the use of energy efficient home comfort systems. There was a time, years ago, when the costs of heating oil, electricity, and natural gas were low enough that we did not need to worry about our utility bills each month. Unfortunately, the increasing global energy demand has changed all this, and the current costs to heat and cool a home have skyrocketed. Energy saving technology has come a long way in recent years, and there are a great many ways to save money on your utility bills through energy efficient upgrades.
Heating with Geothermal offers many energy efficient benefits.
Homeowners around the world have learned a geothermal system is the smarter way to reduce your carbon footprint and utility bills at the same time. Geothermal systems use the renewable energy found in your own back yard, and you can save up to 70% on heating, cooling, and hot water costs!
During the heating cycle, a geothermal system uses the earth loop to extract heat from the ground. As the system pulls heat from the loop it distributes it through a conventional duct system as warm air. The same heat energy can also be used for a radiant floor system or domestic hot water heating. In the cooling mode, our geothermal system air conditions your home by reversing the heating process. Instead of extracting heat from the ground, it is extracted from your home and either moved back into the earth loop, or used to preheat the water in your hot water tank. Once the heat is removed from the air, it is distributed through the duct system in your home.
Geothermal heat pump systems operate more efficiently than an ordinary heating and air conditioning system because they can deliver an astounding five units of energy for every one unit of electrical energy used. By combining stored earth energy with safe electric power, geothermal owners realize savings up to 70% for heating, cooling, and hot water. Our geothermal heating and cooling systems pay for themselves thanks to the enormous energy savings generated.
According to the Department of Energy and the EPA, geothermal systems are the most environmentally friendly way to heat and cool your home. Our systems emit no carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide or other greenhouse gasses, which are considered to be major contributors to environmental air pollution. They are a natural, green source of heating and cooling.
