What Is Energy Star?

What Is Energy Star?

Now more than ever, the world needs ways to reduce excess power consumption. Wasteful energy use leads to a number of problems, from skyrocketing power bills to higher demands on the power grid and more pollution through energy generation. For consumers concerned about the health of their wallet and protecting the environment, there are options. One of the best solutions is to ensure that you choose Energy Star-certified equipment and electronics. What is Energy Star and why should you care? What Does Energy Star Certification Mean?

Well, take a quick look around the electronics department the next time you visit your local “big box” store. You’ll see HDTVs touting their Energy Star certification. A look at the appliance department of any home improvement store will show you the same thing. Everywhere you look, there are more and more appliances and electronics proclaiming that they operate in accordance with Energy Star requirements. For consumers, that certification is a very good thing.

Energy Star certification means that the equipment so certified meets a certain set of minimum criteria, including:

    • Reduced greenhouse gas emissions
    • Reduced electricity consumption without impacting performance levels
    • Lower energy use and higher performance are measurable
    • According to the US federal government, the Energy Star program has allowed consumers to save $18 billion on utility bills in a single year (across the nation).
    • The Benefits of Energy Star Certification for your HVAC System
    • When it comes to power usage in the home, nothing comes close to your HVAC system. In fact, most government sources indicate that almost 50% of your power bill is a direct result of heating and cooling your home. Obviously, it makes sense to invest in an HVAC system capable of reducing your costs, but you need to ensure you can do that without reducing your ability to live comfortably.
    • Energy Star-certified systems are the ideal way to do just that. You’ll find that Trane as well as a number of other top US brands offer Energy Star-approved systems for residential use, giving you the ability to cut down on how much you shell out to the electric company over the course of a year while still being able to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home year round.
    The Energy Star program is very important, and the results speak for themselves. If you want to save some green while greening up the planet and not sacrificing your own comfort, an Energy Star-certified HVAC system is the way to go.

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.
