Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016 Energy efficiency, aside from staying cool, is one of the most important features that homeowners search for today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling bills make up nearly half of every homeowner’s total utility bills, so keeping energy efficient doesn’t only elongate the life of your system and help Earth, but it could also help your wallet. Whether you are looking to replace your air conditioner or just get the optimum efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can influence your comfort. There are several features and items to look for in an air conditioner to ensure that it is as energy efficient as possible: SEER ratings – Each air conditioner has a SEER rating and it evaluates the efficiency of your system. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio; the higher the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the lower your utility costs could be. For the air conditioners manufactured after 2015, the government mandates a minimum SEER rating reliant on your region, so newer systems offer a better route when looking at efficiency. Whether you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Air-Dynamics Inc or only checking the SEER rating of your present system, having the number can provide you with lots of important information. Air filters – Changing the air filter in your air conditioner is an easy, but significant way to increase efficiency. Dirty air filters force your system to work harder than it should to keep you cool. Not only can a fresh air filter help you have a system operating better, it can also keep your indoor air clean. Annual maintenance – This has more than likely been drilled into your head over and over again from us, but we can’t emphasize how important regular check-ups are for your system. Our experts will review electrical components, clean your unit and catch any potential problems before they become bigger issues, potentially impacting the efficiency of your unit. Save money and live in ease – the team at Air-Dynamics Inc in San Angelo acknowledges that an air conditioner is a large investment and we want to make sure you are getting the most for your money.
