Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016One of the most essential things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, next to keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are searching for an air conditioner replacement or wanting to get the most out of the efficiency of your existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling expenses can make up almost half of your total energy bills, 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 noticed each unit has a SEER rating. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, and is a reflection 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 manufactured after 2015, that value is based on region. Our certified professionals will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best selection when considering air conditioner replacement. If you’re hoping to get the most efficiency possible out of your current unit, there are a number 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 improve 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 annual maintenance. Our certified technicians will clean your unit, check electrical connections and catch any problems that might be affecting the efficiency of your unit. Our experts will work to keep you comfortable and save you money. We know what a large investment your air conditioner is and we want to keep it working at its best and help you save money on your utility bills in the process.
