Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

Energy efficiency, aside from remaining cool, is one of the most vital features that homeowners search for today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling costs make up nearly half of every homeowner’s total utility bills, so remaining energy efficient doesn’t only elongate the life of your system and help our planet, but it could also help your wallet. Whether you are looking to replace your air conditioner or just obtain the best efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can affect your comfort.

There are several features and things to look for in an air conditioner to know that it is as energy efficient as possible:

  1. SEER ratings – Every single air conditioner has one and it measures the efficiency of your system. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio; the higher the SEER rating, the superior the efficiency and the lower your utility bills could be. For all air conditioners manufactured after 2015, the government mandates a minimum SEER rating centered on your region, so newer systems offer a better route when comparing efficiency. So if you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Dave's Diversified Services or just checking the SEER rating of your present system, understanding the number can provide you with some important information.
  2. Air filters – Exchanging the air filter in your air conditioner is a simple, but important way to enhance efficiency. Dirty air filters influence 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 more efficiently, it can also keep your indoor air clean.
  3. Annual maintenance – This has most likely been drilled into your head multiple times from us, but we can’t push how important annual check-ups are for your system. Our experts will examine electrical components, clean your unit and monitor any potential problems before they become bigger issues, potentially affecting the efficiency of your unit.
