How to Make Your AC System More Eco-Friendly

December 9, 2019 | Blog

It’s no secret that having an AC unit cooling or heating an entire home or building uses up a lot of energy. However, there are multiple ways that AC systems are becoming friendlier for the environment. Here is everything Big Mountain Heating and Air wants you to know about how to make your air conditioning unit eco-friendly.

How Old is Your AC Unit?

An air conditioning unit that has been installed in the past 8-9 years is probably much more eco-friendly than one that’s any older than that. If you have an older unit, you may want to consider upgrading. That investment will save you money in the long run due to saving on your energy bills. If you’re unsure of when your unit was installed, contact a professional.

Try a Programmable Thermostat

Another easy way to save money and get your AC unit to be more eco-friendly is to switch to a programmable thermostat. This will give you the option to set the times where you won’t be home to turn the air conditioning off and to turn back on when you get home. This option is much easier if you have a set schedule – but one that could potentially save a lot of money, as well.

Get a Properly Sized Unit

You may be spending much more money on your air conditioning unit than you should be if it’s either too small or too big. If your unit is too small, it uses much more energy to maintain the temperature in your home. A professional AC company will help you determine the right size of unit for your home’s heating and cooling needs.

What Our Customers Have To Say

Good Rebates

This is a review for a complete HVAC system replacement from Big Mountain. I started at the SMUD website looking for the best rebate program and found a list of contractors there. I vetted out companies that had a lower number of completed jobs per the SMUD rebate program data.

Very Professional

Had my A/C go out yesterday, called Big Mountain today and they had a serviceman in my area of Lincoln, he was here within a half hour and fix my unit in a very professional manner, and the cost was reasonable. I was very impressed with the company and the serviceman.

I had a appointment with them between 1-3 and one of their staff members called me and kept me updated when they will arrive which was nice. Steve arrived on time and was really nice for explaining what could the cause be. My ac fan was working but cool air wasn’t coming out.
