How to Go Green in Three Steps

What does it mean to go green?

Going green means that you care about the environment and are taking action to be more environmentally conscious with your energy consumption. And we can help you do even more with green energy efficiency. 

We can help you find cost-effective and convenient ways to optimize your energy consumption, help the planet, and do what’s best for both your family and your lifestyle. 

At Sensible, we have experience with geothermal installs like geothermal heat pumps, air-source heat pumps, and other energy alternatives. But before you get started with green energy, there are a few things you want to take into account and take care of first.

#1. Get an Energy Audit

An energy audit will highlight areas of concern in your current heating and cooling system. Not only that, but an energy audit will show you if and where your home’s insulation may be lacking. If you’re not sure how to approach geothermal energy, then this is the place to start.

#2. Take Inventory of Your HVAC System

Taking inventory of your current heating and cooling system will help you decide how to best move forward with geothermal. Our Sensible team is knowledgeable and can guide you on the best path forward, whether that’s upgrading your current HVAC system for more energy efficiency, considering different geothermal options, and taking a look at solar energy. And if cost is a concern, it’s okay to start small. That’s one way that guarantees you will save money long-term and still improve your energy efficiency. 

What do small green energy steps look like? They can include air-source heat pumps, mini-splits, and electric water heaters.

#3. Save on Green Energy

Lastly, don’t forget to take advantage of tax credits, rebates, and new regulations for geothermal energy! If you’re looking for the best economic plan for going green, knowing exactly where you can save helps. In Colorado, new regulations encourage installing solar systems that can generate up to 200% of a customer’s projected energy use. 

Something else to consider is that now through December 31, 2022, you can receive a 26% federal tax credit for residential ground source heat pump installation.
