Masters Can Help You Go Green for Earth Day

Masters Can Help You Go Green for Earth Day

April 22 is Earth Day, and Masters Heating & Cooling wants everyone to consider how they can help protect the environment. It’s a great opportunity to take a closer look at your HVAC and hot water systems.

In virtually every home heating and cooling are the largest energy users followed by your hot water heater. Much of the energy comes from burning fossil fuels, which increases your carbon footprint and contributes to the greenhouse effect.

SPOILER ALERT: Masters wants to help you “go green” by giving away a new air conditioner and hot water heater now through May 31, 2017. Keep reading to learn more.

One of the “greenest” things you can do is to install a geothermal heat pump system in your home. It uses the constant ground temperature under the soil to provide basic cooling in the summer and heat during the winter. A geothermal system is truly the king of renewable energy. It can cut your monthly utility bills by up to 70%. Learn more on our website.

If geothermal won’t work for you, you can still cut your energy usage. If your current air conditioning and heating systems are more than 10 years old, new HVAC systems can be up to 30% more efficient. A/C replacement can significantly cut your carbon footprint.

There’s also another important environmental and cost issue to consider: Older air conditioners use R-22 refrigerant, harming the ozone layer in the atmosphere. New production and import of R-22 ends in 2020. There’s already a shortage, and it’s getting more expensive. The rising cost will make it more expensive to maintain your old AC.

Now let’s talk about your hot water heater. It’s almost always the 2nd largest energy user in the home. There are several options to heat water more efficiently. Maybe it’s a new tankless hot water system? Instead of keeping an entire tank of water hot all the time, it heats the water as you use it. Masters recommends the Rinnai brand, the industry leader. Masters can also help you make your existing electric or gas water heater work more efficiently.

Okay, time to end the suspense and tell you about our contest. Masters Heating & Cooling is looking for the oldest air conditioner and tank style water heater in our service area now through May 31, 2017. Enter today. The winners will receive a brand-new AC system or water heater to replace their current dinosaurs. Wouldn’t that be a great way to help the environment and retire those older, inefficient systems?

Even if you don’t win, when you take all the factors into account, replacing your old system can often be a win-win situation. You will end up with lower monthly bills and you will be helping the environment at the same time. Call on Masters for all your service, maintenance, replacement and repair needs.
