Keeping your home comfy uses about half of all the energy on your electric bill. With greenhouse gases, climate change and the importance of recycling, the size of a person’s carbon footprint certainly makes a difference. So consider these tips and tricks to reduce your household’s carbon footprint, and even save you money!

Going Green With Your HVAC

Select a Unit with a High SEER Rating

As your HVAC system ages, it loses efficiency. Less efficiency requires more energy use for the same comfort level. If you’re purchasing a new unit in the near future, try to choose a unit with a high Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating. Although the initial investment in a unit like this may be higher, the system will pay off over time.

Sun Rays

Use your windows to your advantage. Consider purchasing solar curtains to better maintain the heating and cooling of your home. When the sun shines, pull the curtains to the side and allow the natural warmth to enter. Even a few degrees of extra warmth make an enormous difference in your electric bill. On summer days, close the curtains to block the heat.

Update Your Thermostat

Programmable thermostats automatically turn down the temperature when you are at work. Set your thermostat for day and evening use. When reducing the night’s setting by just a few degrees, the savings are immediately felt in your wallet. And that keeps you on track for going green.

Proper Installation

You might be able to save some money by having a friend install your system. However, over the long run, you are doing yourself a disservice. HVACs are sensitive systems. Only when calibrated and properly installed will the unit function at full efficiency.

Air Filters

A clogged air filter is the number one reason HVAC units fail. And it takes only moments to do. Change your filter every month or two to keep your system efficient and running.


You probably are well aware of when your care needs its next tune up. Well, an HVAC system needs them regularly as well. Maintenance schedules keep your unit running smoothly and efficiently. It also foretells future problems, reducing or eliminating emergency repairs.

Seal Ducts

The whole point of the duct system is to move air. So when there are small cracks or holes, you lose up to 30 percent of the efficiency. Spend a few dollars maintaining seal ducts, and save a lot more on your electricity bill.

Check Home For Leaks

If heat is escaping out of the windows or by a door, you are paying a lot of money for nothing. Filling the small spaces will make your home more comfortable.

Customer Reviews

This was an exceptional experience! We woke up to our A/C on but not cooling (it was 6am and already 81 in the house). The person who set up our appointment was very nice, able to get us seen same-day, and let us know of some options to help save us money.

-Christy Cormier

The service from Sam and Chris was excellent! They were very knowledgeable and professional. They were able to answer all of my questions and completed all of my electrical issues. I will definitely use them again for future jobs. Thank you!

-Adrienne Beal

From the get go I could tell that the Snyder employees were truly professionals and didn’t push to make sales like other companies I’ve talked to my whole life. They took the time to explain so that I could make a decision. The installers and later the duct cleaners were very respectful during their work here. Thank you.

-Mike Daniels

Snyder Heating and AC is dependable, always on time and techs have always been courteous and knowledgeable. Emanuel was a great addition to the company. He was friendly and knew what he was doing. Thank you for great service.

-Linda Ackley

Snyder came in and did a total overhaul of our duct system. They had a great knowledge of what to do to make our home so comfortable! The technicians were all so professional and took great care of us! We’re so thankful for their expertise. Great and easy communication with the call center. We will definitely use them again!

-Crystal Hill

Snyder provided an amazing experience from start to finish. Most of us dread getting estimates with pressuring salespeople. Erik was a great guy, explained all my options and didn’t try to pressure me to act quickly! Justin followed up with my husband and I to offer further assistance in our decision. Again, no pressure, just helped with our follow up questions.

-Michele Bauer

Very prompt, professional, courteous, and cleaned up after repair. Had water line break in my front yard and no pressure. Very pleased and would highly recommend Snyder for all your plumbing, and AC needs. Thank you for making a rough morning get better with ease and professionalism.

-Chuck Jr.

Snyder was easy to get in contact with and had availability the next day. Clint came out and needed some parts so had to reschedule us for the next day for installation. He did a great job converting our old 3 knob shower to one. Looks great! Professional and courteous. 100% recommend this company, especially Clint.
