Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016One of the most significant things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, aside from keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are searching for an air conditioner replacement or looking to get the most out of the efficiency of your existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling bills can make up close to half of your total energy expenses, so we want to help you do everything you can to make sure you’re cool while keeping down costs. If you’re thinking about air conditioner replacement you’ve probably seen that each unit has a SEER rating. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, and is a measurement of the efficiency of your air conditioner. The higher the SEER rating, the higher the efficiency, which means the lower the heating and cooling costs. The government orders a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was manufactured after 2015, that value is based on location. Our certified professionals will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best decision when looking into air conditioner replacement. If you’re wanting to get the most efficiency possible out of your existing unit, there are a variety of things you can do. First, as we always try to remind people, swap out your air filters. A dirty filter will cause your air conditioner to run harder to keep you cool. Keeping it clean will assist with efficiency, keep your air clean and lengthen the life of your unit. We don’t want to sound like a broken record, but it’s important. Another thing to do is keep up with regular maintenance. Our certified technicians will clean your unit, check electrical connections and notice any problems that may be inhibiting the efficiency of your unit. Our experts will work to keep you comfortable and save you money. We know what a huge investment your air conditioner is and we want to keep it running at its best and help you save money on your utility bills in the process.
