Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016One of the most important 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 costs can make up nearly half of your total utility bills, 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 noted 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 utility bills. 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 present 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 help 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 routine maintenance. Our certified technicians will clean your unit, check electrical connections and note any problems that could be affecting the efficiency of your unit. Our professionals 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 running at its best and help you save money on your energy bills in the process.
