While Earth Day is officially April 22, your friendly service technicians do their best to bring energy-efficient products and services to your home every day. That’s why we offer ENERGY STAR-certified appliances to help our customers save money on operating costs while reducing energy use. This is all done without sacrificing your comfort or the appliance’s performance.

What is ENERGY STAR? It is a program backed by the national government. If you see the ENERGY STAR symbol on an appliance at the store, it means that a particular product has passed specific requirements for limited energy use and output. Home comfort companies cannot pay to have the ENERGY STAR icon on their products; instead, they can partner with the program to offer cost and energy savings with their appliances.

Did you know that in 2018 alone, an average of 800,000 ENERGY STAR-certified products and appliances were sold? That’s a lot of intelligent decisions made by builders, companies, and consumers.

Rainaldi has partnered with Goodman Air Conditioners to bring strong performance to your home’s comfort level while saving money and boosting energy efficiency. Goodman Air Conditioners are an ENERGY STAR partner because they use Puron® in all of their air conditioners. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency approves Puron® to replace Freon-22 used in older HVAC units. Puron® is environmentally friendly due to its lack of chlorine.

We also provide ENERGY STAR-certified hybrid heat pump water heaters that can help you save up to $330 a year. These hybrid heaters use heat from the outside air (which can be abundant in the Orlando area). The water heater’s evaporator coil absorbs the heat from the air, and the heat exchanger uses that to heat the water within the tank. It makes the Florida weather work for you!

Just because these products are energy efficient doesn’t mean you’re sacrificing the quality of service. The ENERGY STAR program works to ensure that products up for certification can still deliver quality performance.

Having energy-efficient products doesn’t mean they are more expensive. Now, more than ever, it is easier to find products such as our Goodman Air Conditioners using ENERGY STAR’s Product Finder. Plus, you can look for rebates and special offers on new products thanks to the ENERGY STAR website hosting a rebate finder. So, you can save money when you purchase the product and while the energy-efficient products are in use.
