Alternative Energy for Homes


HVAC Heating Solutions

Heating your home uses more energy and costs more money than any other system, typically making up about 42% of your utility bill.

No matter what kind of heating system you have in your home or business, you can save money and increase your comfort by properly maintaining and upgrading your equipment. But remember, an energy-efficient furnace alone will not have as great an impact on your energy bills as using the whole approach. By combining proper equipment maintenance and upgrades with recommended insulation, air sealing, and thermostat settings, you can save about 30% on your energy bill while reducing environmental emissions.

Most U.S. homes and businesses are heated with either furnaces or boilers. Furnaces heat air and distribute the heated air through using ducts. Boilers heat water, and provide either hot water or steam for heating. Steam is distributed via pipes to steam radiators, and hot water can be distributed via baseboard radiators or radiant floor systems, or can heat air via a coil. Steam boilers operate at a higher temperature than hot water boilers, and are inherently less efficient, but high-efficiency versions of all types of furnaces and boilers are currently available.

Furnace

Furnace Replacement & Installation

If we cannot repair your unit, we will help find the best furnace that fits your home, specific situation, and budget. We can install complete heating systems, standalone furnaces, outdoor heating units, and even heat pumps. We want to make sure your home is ready for the bitter winters.

Heating Tips

  • Set your programmable thermostat as low as is comfortable in the winter and lower the set point when you're sleeping or away from home.
  • Clean or replace filters on furnaces once a month or as recommended.
  • Clean warm-air registers, baseboard heaters, and radiators as needed; make sure they're not blocked by furniture, carpeting, or drapes.
  • Eliminate trapped air from hot-water radiators once or twice a season; if unsure about how to perform this task, contact Trison at (585) 626-1040.
  • Place heat-resistant radiator reflectors between exterior walls and the radiators.
  • Turn off kitchen, bath, and other exhaust fans within 20 minutes after you are done cooking or bathing; when replacing exhaust fans, consider installing high-efficiency, low-noise models.
  • During winter, keep the draperies and shades on your south-facing windows open during the day to allow the sunlight to enter your home and closed at night to reduce the chill you may feel from cold windows.


Heat Pumps

A heat pump works identically to an air conditioner when cooling your home in the summer. The primary difference between an air conditioner and a heat pump is this: a heat pump can also heat your home in cooler weather!

How a Heat Pump Works

When the thermostat registers air inside as being too warm, the heat pump turns on, and begins compressing a gas called refrigerant. This turns the gas into a chilled liquid, which is then pumped inside to the indoor coil. Warm air is pulled from the home via return air duct(s), and forced through the chilled indoor coil. This cools and dehumidifiers the air, and is the same process used by a standard air conditioner.

In cooler weather, a heat pump essentially reverses the cooling process by absorbing heat energy from the outside air, and then dissipating that into the air inside. Even when outside air is cold, there is still heat energy in it.

Heat Pump Efficiency

A Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating is used to measure the efficiency of a heat pump when cooling. A Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF) is used to measure heating efficiency. Remember that the quality of your installation and the design and condition of your ductwork has a huge effect on overall heating and air conditioning efficiency. Do not hesitate to contact us at 585-626-1040.

Boilers

Boilers provide quiet, consistent warmth with innovative technology and energy efficiency. At Trison we selectively install the most innovative and dependable boiler manufacturers.

Air Duct Cleaning

Reduces your energy costs. Choose from a variety of efficiency levels that match your budget, including the ultra-efficient Energy Star-rated boilers, which qualify for a federal tax credit.

Reduces fuel consumption. Modulating boilers match their heating output to the heating demand of your home by using far less fuel than conventional high-temperature boilers.

Provides flexibility. Today's boilers provide different water temperatures, making them an ideal choice for combination hot water and in-floor radiant systems.
