One of the most significant things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, other than 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 an existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling bills can make up almost half of your total utility costs, 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 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 bills. The government mandates 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 considering air conditioner replacement.
If you’re wanting to get the most efficiency possible out of your present unit, there are a host 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 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 essential.
Another thing to do is always have annual maintenance. Our certified experts will clean your unit, check electrical connections and catch any problems that might be affecting the efficiency of your unit.
