Although much of the focus of going Green is on solar panels, electric cars, and public transportation, there’s actually a lot you can do at home to reduce your carbon footprint while saving hundreds on energy bills.
A green choice can almost be made during the purchasing stage of a central heater and a/c. Newer central air conditioners and heating system are naturally more efficient, as more companies realize that people are becoming more conscious of their energy consumption. In particular, if you are in the market for a new HVAC, look for the energy star mark. These really are indicative of a more energy efficient unit. A slightly higher cost will certainly be offset by the hundreds of dollars you will save on home energy bills, in the long run.
In almost any air conditioner, there are several main parts:
- blower fan
- condensor coil
- evaporator coil
If your air conditioner is not working properly, here’s a list of causes that will make doing your own troubleshooting less overwhelming.
- If the unit doesn’t work at all; doesn’t turn on, it could be a motor overload or a faulty switch
- If it’s not cooling properly, but still works, it could mean a dirty filter, dirty coils, or that the unit is leaking coolant (e.g., freon).
- If your a/c turns on and off repeatedly, it could mean dirty coils and/or a dirty filter
Try to be as cautious and informed as possible. Some air conditioners are more D.I.Y-friendly than others. Do a bit of research online before you proceed. Just remember: it’s not always best to roll up your sleeves, and assume all of the responsibility for fixing it. It’s OK to ask for help!

I would like to share with you a little story about love and home heating. Long Beach is where I was born and raised. It was also where I met Alice.It was the first week in February and it was cold. I had not seen the mercury go this low in several years. I was on my way home from a business trip and I stopped in the local diner for a quick bite before heading to my house.
Alice was the picture of beauty in her white waitress uniform as she walked over and poured me a cup of hot coffee.
“Cold enough for you?” she said with a smile. “Oh, yes. I dread going home; my heater broke the day before I left. It is going to be like an ice cave at my house. “Well, it just so happens…I know a thing or two about home heating and my shift is over. Want me to take a look?”
I accepted her proposal and away we went. Our breath was visible as we entered my artic abode. Alice suggested I call West Coast Chief Repair to come have a look at my system. We got to know each other over cocoa as we waited.
That winter brought a new job, a powerful new home heating system and Alice, the love of my life.
