Until now, you might have assumed the sun only added to the energy consumed by your HVAC systems. At least, you know your cooling system will have to work harder when the sun is out. By heating up the environment, the sun is requiring your air conditioner to run more often to cool your home on a hot day. However, when solar energy is harnessed as a source of power, it could actually help you spend less on both heating and cooling.
The sun's free, abundant, and sustainable energy can be easily converted into electric energy for your HVAC systems. The same electric energy that powers a light bulb is easily obtained from the sun. Photo-voltaic cells convert the sun's energy directly into electric energy. In this case, the electric energy from the sun can reduce electric consumption from your air conditioner or heat pump.

Geothermal HVAC systems use Earth temperature for heat exchange. While some areas of the country experiences extreme climates, temperatures underground remain constant. Geothermal heat pumps are considered a form of high efficiency heat pump.
Geothermal heating and cooling is the cleanest and most efficient heating and cooling technology on the market. Because the system taps into a renewable resource, the earth, your heating and cooling source will never run out and monthly bills are predictable.
Geothermal energy provides base load electricity 24/7. It's highly reliable, flexible, produces no NOx emissions and virtually no CO2 emissions.
You need to think about quality and style of your system, along with its efficiency, which is measured in SEER units. The higher the SEER number, the more efficient the system and the more you'll save on energy costs. You must be sure that you do not purchase a system that is too large or too small for your home or business. Trison will perform a heating & cooling load calculation to insure that the size of your system is spot on!
The thinking around HVAC systems is that an investment in a proven product is worth it. You want a system that works, saves you money on your utility bill, and has a good reputation.
