Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016One of the most essential things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, other than keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are searching for an air conditioner replacement or would like to get the most out of the efficiency of your current system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling bills can make up almost half of your total energy bills, so we want to help you do everything you can to not only keep cool, but keep costs down. If you’re thinking about air conditioner replacement you’ve probably noticed each unit has a SEER rating. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, and is an indication of the efficiency of your air conditioner. The higher the SEER rating, the higher the efficiency, which means the lower the energy costs. The government requires a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was manufactured after 2015, that value is based on where you live. Our certified pros will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best choice when considering air conditioner replacement. If you’re looking to get the most efficiency possible out of your existing unit, there are a number of things you can do. First, as we always try to remind people, switch out your air filters. A dirty filter will cause your air conditioner to run harder to keep you cool. Keeping it clean will help with efficiency, keep your air clean and improve the life of your unit. We don’t want to sound like a broken record, but it’s a big deal. Another thing to do is stay on top of annual maintenance. Our certified professionals will clean your unit, check electrical connections and catch any problems that might be impacting the efficiency of your unit. Our experts will work to keep you comfortable and save you money. We know what a big investment your air conditioner is and we want to keep it operating at its best and help you save money on your heating and cooling bills in the process.
