The Best Home Upgrades For Energy Savings

With summer fast approaching, it’s hard not to think about those high electric bills. However, you don’t have to if you invest in energy-efficient upgrades for your home. You can make a big change like energy-efficient windows, energy-efficient AC or solar panels. It can also be something small like an AC tune-up. Here are a few reasons to make these changes.

Window replacement and repair

Even the smallest of holes and cracks in your windows and frames can impact your AC. It’s the same as if your door was wide open, all the cool AC is going outside while all of the warm air is pulled in. Over time, frames can wear and get damaged – even if it’s not obvious to the eye. When you decide to get replacement windows, it’s important to go with the ones that are energy efficient. Over the last few years, window replacement efficiency has improved a lot. They are stronger, can reduce your utility bills and increase your home’s value. Here at Big Mountain Air, we are an official Anlin Windows dealer. Anlin Windows work to not only offer efficiency but style.

Solar Panels

Solar panel¬†installation is a big investment of your time and money. However, if done right, you’ll quickly start to see that money come back. Every home is different when it comes to installing panels – they need to be in the perfect spot to absorb the most light. Along with saving money and energy, solar panels help reduce your carbon footprint, which is always a plus!

AC Tune-up and Installation

The key to a long-lasting and efficient AC unit is to have consistent and frequent tune-ups. One reason units don’t last as long as they should and spike your energy bills is often because one small problem you can’t see can escalate into a big and expensive one. A tune-up can help find those small problems before they become big problems. However, if your AC isn’t living up to what you need or has kicked the bucket, it’s time to invest in a new unit. We offer central air conditioning, ductless air conditioning and heat pumps.
