Going Green While Saving Green

Going Green While Saving Green

In today’s economic and environmental climate, going green makes sense in more ways than one. Not only is it a common sense way to save some money, it’s the right thing to do for our increasingly overburdened planet. And though the morality of being eco-friendly is a debate perhaps better left to theologians, the monetary benefits are something just about everyone can enthusiastically agree on. Air conditioning can easily become a household’s biggest energy drain in summer. In southern climates such as Jacksonville, Florida that summer expense is a year round burden. Buying an eco-friendly A/C unit is a one time splurge that results in years of savings.

Of course, a simple way to ease into green savings is to cut down on the energy usage of any existing air-conditioning units in the home. That means cleaning filters, making sure the there’s sufficient airflow space around any units, and keeping doors and windows closed to avoid losing cool air. Properly insulating homes is another way of keeping cool air in and has the added bonus of keeping heat in during winter as well. Ceiling and room fans are yet another low energy method for keeping cool during warmer months. Any money saved from even those small changes can be put aside to slowly save for a newer, greener unit in the future.

While that new unit may seem like an unnecessary budget buster, especially after implementing the air-conditioning usage tips mentioned above, with up to fifty percent less energy used and with the price of electricity steadily increasing that one time expense will quickly pay for itself. And aside from any short term energy savings, with the real estate market still sluggish an eco-friendly central A/C unit can also boost a home’s value. Being green ends up saving quite a bit of green, while saving the planet at the same time.

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.
