Thick humidity. Unbearable heat. Hot days, and nights that bring little relief. Aside from these unfortunate descriptions of a typical Philadelphia summer, we at Orange Energy Solutions also think of things like high utility bills and homes that don’t keep that cool, conditioned air inside. If you desire to replace your cooling system, we can help you properly size the equipment as well as ensure proper HVAC installation. Even if you already have a heating and air conditioning contractor in mind, we can provide a second opinion on the size of the equipment necessary for your home.

There are many types of cooling systems to choose from. Some sytems share ductwork with the heating system; some operate without ductwork altogether. Get in touch with us today to schedule your energy audit or to have us check out your existing cooling system if you’re considering a replacement. The sooner you act, the sooner you can begin enjoying your home as a retreat from the heat.

Is your furnace ready to retire or are you looking for a heating system upgrade? Consider this... today's high efficiency furnaces consume at least 30% less fuel than older furnaces! Most home heating systems operate at roughly a 75% rate of efficiency. If you are looking to install a new furnace, it is definitely smart to consider a high efficiency model.

A Heat Pump is a mechanical-compression cycle refrigeration system that can be reversed to either heat or cool a controlled space. Installation for this type of system typically consists of two parts: an indoor unit called an air handler and an outdoor unit similar to a central air conditioner, but referred to as a heat pump. A compressor circulates refrigerant that absorbs and releases heat as it travels between the indoor and outdoor units.

Most U.S. homes are heated with either a furnace or a boiler. Furnaces distribute heat through your ductwork whereas boilers heat water then distribute heat through your home through radiators. 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. 

Mini-split-system heat pumps, or mini-splits, are a good choice for houses that have non-ducted heating systems, such as hot water heat and space heaters, and window or through-the-wall air conditioners used during summer. They are also a great option for room additions where extending or installing ductwork isn’t feasible.
There are many benefits to installing a geothermal system. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, geothermal heat pumps can reduce energy consumption up to 72% compared to electric resistance heating.
