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 looking for an air conditioner replacement or would like 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 heating and cooling expenses, so we want to help you do everything you can to not only keep cool, but keep costs down. If you’re considering 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 mandates a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was produced after 2015, that number is based on location. 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 wanting 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 operate harder to keep you cool. Keeping it clean will improve 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 essential. Another thing to do is always have regular maintenance. Our certified technicians will clean your unit, check electrical connections and note any problems that could be inhibiting the efficiency of your unit. Our professionals will work to keep you comfortable and save you money. We know what a big investment your air conditioner is and we want to keep it operating at its best and help you save money on your energy bills in the process.
