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 in the market for an air conditioner replacement or looking to get the most out of the efficiency of your current system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling costs can make up close to half of your total utility expenses, so we want to help you do everything you can to not only keep cool, but keep costs down. If you’re looking into air conditioner replacement you’ve probably seen that 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 heating and cooling bills. The government requires a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was produced 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 choice when thinking about 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, change your air filters. A dirty filter will cause your air conditioner to work harder to keep you cool. Keeping it clean will assist with efficiency, keep your air clean and extend the life of your unit. We don’t want to sound like a broken record, but it’s essential. Another thing to do is stay on top of annual maintenance. Our certified experts will clean your unit, check electrical connections and note any problems that could be inhibiting the efficiency of your unit. Our team 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 working at its best and help you save money on your heating and cooling bills in the process.
