ECO FRIENDLY & ENERGY EFFICIENT AC SOLUTIONS
Almost half of your household energy costs go toward just two things: HEATING AND COOLING. You have a lot of room to make a difference and even small changes can make dramatic improvements in heating and cooling household fuel efficiency.
If you have an old heating and cooling system you might want to consider getting a new unit. The new eco friendly hvac units can save you 20-40% annually. The new units use a new environmentally friendly freon called R-410A.
Proper maintenance helps your air conditioning system run more eco friendly and more efficiently. Replace disposable filters or hose down permanent filters once a month during the cooling season. Clean the outside condenser coil at the beginning and at the end of the air conditioning season. Spray the coils with diluted detergent, and then hose them down. It’s also a good idea to have your entire air conditioning system checked yearly by a qualified air conditioning contractor.
Turn your thermostat up a couple of degrees. Every degree saves approximately 3% in eco friendly energy costs. If your home is empty during the day, consider buying a programmable thermostat to avoid cooling your home when no one is there. These thermostats reduce energy use and can save you valuable dollars in energy costs each year.
Change your air filters. A clogged or dirty air filter reduces airflow to the air conditioning unit, causing it to work harder and use more energy. Change your filters once a month, clean vents and close unused vents. Just these simple things will save you up to 5% in cooling costs.
Use fans whenever possible. Average central air conditioning can cost up to 58 cents per hour to operate. In contrast, a fan (ceiling or portable) cost only 1 cent per hour to operate. That’s a savings of 57 cents per hour on those days when your central air conditioning is not needed.
Make sure windows and doors are sealed. Again, this will dramatically improve your household efficiency. Sealing air leaks and adding insulation can reduce your annual bill by 10%.
Open a window if the weather is nice, turn off the air and open the windows.
A cooler air conditioning unit minimizes breakdowns. Install your air conditioner out of sunlight. Also, shade it beneath an awning or patio cover.
Need to replace your AC unit? Think of selecting an eco friendly, high efficiency unit. Because it is less expensive to operate, this unit quickly pays for itself. Replacing an air conditioning unit that is 10 years or older with a new, eco friendly, high efficiency unit, can cut your annual heating and cooling costs by 20-40%.

NEW R4-10A IS SAFE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT!
Most air-conditioners and heat pumps sold around the world use a refrigerant called R-22. Emissions of R-22 are considered by some experts to be a significant factor in depleting the ozone layer that protects animals and people from harmful rays from the sun. Families now have the choice to ask for an air-conditioner or heat pump that uses a more efficient and environmentally friendlier refrigerant called 410A or R-410A when buying a new system for their home.
