AC & Heater Repair in San Antonio

Eco-Friendly HVAC Solutions

Going green in your everyday life can seem like a large amount of work in the forefront, but in the end, it will not only benefit the environment, but it can help you save a lot of money, as well.

From your plumbing to electricity, there are a number of ways you can go green right in your own home, but we’ll focus on your HVAC systems.

Change air filters regularly. Especially in the peak of the summer, be sure to change out your dirty filter. Doing so monthly will increase airflow – allowing your system to function more efficiently.

Install a programmable thermostat. Particularly if you are out at work or school for part of the day, scheduling when your system should turn on and off is a simple way to save without having to remember to do so.

Seal cracks around your home. Weather stripping is just as important in preparation for summer months as it is for winter. Keeping out hot air ensures you are getting the comfort out of your air conditioning you should be.

Insulate. Again, insulation is an effective way to control your indoor temperature. Winter or summer, poor insulation is an easy way to waste money on energy bills.

Choose an Energy Star certified system. Qualified systems can save you as much as 50% on energy bills. If your system is more than 10 years old, why not switch it out for an eco-friendly one?
