Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016One of the most important things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, other than keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are looking for an air conditioner replacement or looking to get the most out of the efficiency of your current system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling bills can make up nearly half of your total heating and cooling bills, so we want to help you do everything you can to make sure you’re cool while keeping down costs. If you’re considering air conditioner replacement you’ve probably noted 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 heating and cooling bills. The government orders a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was made after 2015, that number is based on location. Our certified experts will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best selection when looking into air conditioner replacement. If you’re hoping to get the most efficiency possible out of your current unit, there are a variety of things you can do. First, as we always try to remind people, swap out your air filters. A dirty filter will cause your air conditioner to work 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 keep up with annual maintenance. Our certified technicians will clean your unit, check electrical connections and notice any problems that may be impacting the efficiency of your unit. Our team 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.
