Imagine that you had recognized the need to treat the world and its resources as finite & irreplaceable when oil still cost $1 a barrel.

Energy Efficient Air Conditioning
In New Mexico, keeping cool is a necessity during our warm months. With the days hotter than some of our best green chile you’ll want to keep cool while saving money and energy. The best way to do that is with an AIR2O High Efficiency Air Conditioner that delivers air 50% colder than a standard evaporative cooler. It also provides 80% reduction in energy consumption, superior air quality, low maintenance and environmentally friendly! It qualifies for the El Paso Electric’s EPESaver™ High Efficiency Cooling Program which is money right back in your pocket!
Solar Water Heating: Using the Sun’s Energy To Heat Your Water
Sun and Earth are distributors of ezinc Solar Water Heaters. During the day, a heat transfer liquid is heated in the panel, then circulates into a heat transfer coil inside the tank on the roof. As the liquid transfers heat to the water, the liquid cools and circulates back into the panel to be heated again. Now that’s hot water! What better way to save money than to use the Sun to heat your water! Other systems are available as well. We help you decide what’s best for you!
Sustainable Roof Coating
Sustainable Roof coating can save you money while helping the environment. A recent statement made by Secretary of Energy Steven Chu encouraged painting roofs white as an effective tool in reducing energy use from air conditioning. The advantages are so much more! With a sustainable roof your energy bill will be lower; your roof will last longer and require less maintenance than a traditional roof. Your roof will no longer be a heat collection source but will be a reflective tool to help your home stay cool.
