Alternative energy solutions are now within reach of many homeowners and businesses, thanks to technology advancements that have driven down equipment prices and simplified operation. Precision Air has helped many customers integrate solar and geothermal energy with sophisticated systems that deliver uncompromising comfort while reducing fossil fuel dependence. Our solar and geothermal systems are dependable and easy to use.
Solar ThermalA solar thermal system collects heat from the sun and uses it to heat domestic hot water and/or indoor air. Precision Air installs solar collector panels and integrates the solar system with a traditional system using oil, gas or electricity to ensure heat and/or hot water in all weather conditions. A typical solar system can meet all the hot water needs of a family of four year-round. Solar heat/hot water installations qualify for a federal tax credit equivalent to 30 percent of the purchase and installation costs.
Solar Attic FansA well-ventilated attic provides year-round benefits and can lower your energy bills and protect the life of your roofing. And what better way to power your attic fan than what's already shining down on your roof - the sun!

Air Sealing and Insulation UpgradesHigh energy prices are putting a lot of pressure on everyone's budgets, but there are steps you can take to reduce energy consumption. One step we always recommend is to upgrade to more energy-efficient comfort equipment. But another less costly and equally effective method is weatherization - air sealing and insulation.
Insulation and air sealing of attics yield a 20 percent savings on energy bills. Similar work in a crawl space yields 10 percent savings. And then there is the ductwork, where you can achieve a 20 to 50 percent savings. The investment cost is far less than installing a new boiler, furnace or heat pump.
And remember, as a Precision Air customer, you won't have to find new contractors for your home improvements, because we do it all. We have expanded our services in recent years to include home energy audits and home performance assessments.
GeothermalA geothermal heat pump can help heat a building in winter and cool it in summer by tapping into moderate temperatures underground. The pump extracts renewable energy and uses it to moderate the indoor air temperature and reduce demand for traditional fuel. Geothermal energy has been used in various forms for centuries. Precision Air installs modern systems that integrate it seamlessly with traditional heating and cooling, so that comfort and ease of operation are not compromised. Geothermal systems qualify for a federal tax credit equivalent to 30 percent of the purchase and installation costs.
LightingLighting your home can be costly, but Precision Air can help by installing environmentally friendly lighting that reduces your costs without sacrificing visibility. You'll be astonished at the level of savings when you switch to compact fluorescent and LED energy-efficient lights and controls.
