Did you know that nearly half of the average U.S. homeowner’s energy use comes from heating and cooling? Your HVAC system works hard to keep you and your family comfortable, and you probably have the utility bills to show for it. That’s why it’s important for Texas homeowners to find ways to improve their heating and cooling energy efficiency in every season to keep energy costs down throughout the year.
If you have an older HVAC system and start to notice that your monthly energy bills are through the roof, your aging heating and cooling equipment may be to blame.
Though most HVAC systems last for about 10 years, some older systems will decline in performance and efficiency over time – especially if the equipment was of poor quality or the system was not maintained properly over its lifetime.
Fortunately, HVAC technology has come a long way in the past decade. And homeowners have a variety of options for efficient HVAC systems that can help them save more money on energy costs over the life of the unit. Below is our guide to understanding HVAC energy efficiency in TX, complete with details on the best energy efficient HVAC systems available on the market today.

Optimal Home Comfort
Every homeowner has a different idea of what the perfect indoor climate looks like. The Carrier® Infinity System seamlessly manages temperature, humidity, airflow, and air quality to help you achieve optimal home comfort – whatever that may look like. Gone are the days of constantly adjusting the thermostat to find the perfect temperature. The Carrier® Infinity HVAC system automatically adjusts the temperature to account for seasonal temperature shifts.
With the Carrier® Infinity System, you can breathe easy. The Infinity System works to control humidity throughout your home by telling your system’s parts to run slower or longer to adjust the moisture levels. The system also helps you maintain a healthy indoor air quality by killing germs and trapping dust and other particles while keeping fresh air running throughout the home. The result is a cleaner, healthier home environment for your whole family.
Maximum Energy Efficiency
Reducing energy expenses doesn’t mean that you have to reduce your comfort levels. The Carrier Infinity System is designed to strike the perfect balance between energy savings and the ideal home environment. The easy-to-use interface learns and adapts to your comfort preferences, delivering energy-efficient programmable settings that help you save money while staying comfortable.
The Carrier Infinity HVAC system is driven by Carrier Greenspeed™ Intellience, which helps take the system one step further than other high-efficiency units. With Greenspeed Intelligence technology, the Infinity HVAC system runs quietly and at different speeds, allowing the unit to operate on longer run times with more steady capacities to provide optimal humidity management.
Ideal Comfort Control
With the Infinity System Control, you’re in the driver’s seat when it comes to home comfort management. This smart thermostat technology enables communication between all the major parts in your HVAC system, allowing you to maximize efficiency and boost savings, while also obtaining and maintaining ultimate home comfort.
The Infinity System Control can remember your comfort preferences and also includes mobile app connectivity allowing you to control your temperature settings from your smartphone. With your authorization, your Carrier dealer can also run diagnostics on your equipment to provide fast, easy, and efficient service when your system has repair needs.
No matter how fantastic your new HVAC system is, you won’t be able to benefit from the full potential of your system if you don’t stay up-to-date with the equipment’s maintenance needs. Just like your vehicle, your HVAC system needs routine preventative maintenance to keep it running smoothly year-round. By keeping your system clean, well-lubricated, and free of repair needs, you can ensure that your heating and cooling equipment isn’t working harder than it needs to keep your home comfortable.
As a homeowner, it is your responsibility to care for your HVAC system. Though there are some maintenance tasks that should only be performed by a professional HVAC technician, there are also some tasks that you can perform yourself if you want to. One of the most important maintenance tasks that homeowners can tackle is changing their air filter. Though every system and air filter is different, we recommend checking yours once a month and replacing the filter when it has become dirty or clogged.
An HVAC system tune-up is a routine maintenance visit where an experienced HVAC technician inspects, cleans, and lubricates your equipment while checking for any repair needs. Though it’s generally recommended that you get a tune-up at least once a year, at Advent, we advise our customers to get a tune-up twice a year – once in the spring before you start using your air conditioning system heavily and once in the fall before heating season. Our experienced HVAC technicians will ensure that your system is running smoothly when you need it most.
With so many other things on your mind, it’s easy to forget about HVAC maintenance. Preventative HVAC maintenance plans are a simple and effective way to ensure that your system gets the care it needs throughout the year. With our annual maintenance plans, it’s never been easier or more affordable to protect your HVAC system and home. We offer different levels of preventative maintenance plans to meet the specific needs of every homeowner. Contact us today to learn more about our plans.
