Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016One of the most essential things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, other than keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are in the market for an air conditioner replacement or would like to get the most out of the efficiency of an existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling bills can make up close to half of your total utility expenses, 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 noticed 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 energy costs. The government requires a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was manufactured after 2015, that value is based on location. 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 hoping to get the most efficiency possible out of your present unit, there are a variety of things you can do. First, as we always try to remind people, switch out your air filters. A dirty filter will cause your air conditioner to operate harder to keep you cool. Keeping it clean will improve 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 essential. Another thing to do is stay on top of regular maintenance. Our certified technicians will clean your unit, check electrical connections and note any problems that could be impacting 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 operating at its best and help you save money on your utility bills in the process.
