Energy Efficiency


RC Mechanical gives you the BEST Heating and Air-Conditioning system for your home, while at the same time lowering your carbon footprint and lowering your energy bill.

Based in Redwood City, RC Mechanical is a BPI Analyst. BPI (Building Performance Institute) is the nation’s premier standards organization for energy efficiency furnace and A/C retrofits.

RC Mechanical is also a CaliforniaFIRST partner. CaliforniaFIRST provides financing for home energy-efficiency upgrades. In addition, we are a specially trained Participating Contractor in the Bay Area Regional Energy Network. BayREN’s Home Upgrade program offers rebates for energy-efficiency improvements to your furnace, air conditioner, or air filtration system.

According to the U.S. Dept of Energy, proper sizing and installation are key to air conditioner efficiency. However, many air conditioners are not installed correctly. As an unfortunate result, modern energy-efficient air conditioners can perform almost as poorly as older inefficient models.

Homeowners in Redwood City, California and around the Bay Area know that we do things right. We analyze your entire home to determine what size of furnace or air conditioner you need. We insulate, seal ducts, and detect and fix air leaks. Sealing air leaks alone can save 10%-20% on annual heating and cooling bills. Also, regular maintenance from RC Mechanical ensures your furnace and air condioner continue running efficiently over time.


“We enjoyed working with you and would unconditionally recommend you to anyone needing heating or cooling system services. You were always clear as to what we could expect in terms of work and costs and went the extra mile to deal with the unique conditions presented by our older house. Please refer anyone to us wishing to know more about you and your work.” – Tom & Linda, Foster City
