Your AC Unit Can Help You Keep Cool and Go Green Tucson Arizona
These days almost everyone is concerned about the environment and wants to do what they can to help. “Going green” is a common goal, but what does that really mean? In the broadest and simplest terms, it means taking steps to conserve energy and reduce pollution. While that can take on a variety of activities, it doesn’t have to result in anything drastic.
Yes, it’s a fact that HVAC systems can put out carbon emissions into the air, but for Tucson Arizona residents, living without an AC unit just isn’t practical. Don’t despair. You don’t have to throw out your air conditioning system and resort to paper fans to stay cool in order to go green. Here are a few steps you can take to reduce the impact your home air conditioning system has on the environment.
Start simple – When it comes time to change out your AC Unit’s filter, breathe a little easier and purchase unbleached, non-toxic filters.
Optimize Efforts – You can lessen the effort your AC Unit puts out by running ceiling and other fans throughout the day.
Check Out Before You Walk Out – When you’re leaving your house for the day, set the thermostat a bit warmer so your HVAC system doesn’t work so hard to cool an empty house. Also, check to be sure windows are closed and drapes are shut to keep the sunlight and that added heat blocked out.
Use Nature’s Cooling – As long as it’s safe, open up your windows at night to let the cool air in and give your AC Unit a break. By closing up windows again in the morning, you can keep the house cool for quite a while before the air conditioning needs to kick in and cool it down.
Shop Smart – If you are in the market for an air conditioning system replacement, you can focus on energy efficient models that are not only eco-friendly but will also save you some money on your monthly bill.
