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 would like to get the most out of the efficiency of your current system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling costs can make up nearly half of your total energy costs, so we want to help you do everything you can to keep you cool and keep your 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 a reflection of the efficiency of your air conditioner. The higher the SEER rating, the higher the efficiency, which means the lower the utility expenses. The government requires a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was made after 2015, that rating is based on location. Our certified professionals will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best selection when looking into air conditioner replacement. If you’re looking 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, change 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 a big deal. Another thing to do is keep up with annual maintenance. Our certified professionals will clean your unit, check electrical connections and notice any problems that may be inhibiting the efficiency of your unit. Our professionals 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 utility bills in the process.
