One of the most essential things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, next to keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are in the market 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 nearly half of your total utility 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 noted that each unit has a SEER rating. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, and is a measurement of the efficiency of your air conditioner. The higher the SEER rating, the higher the efficiency, which means the lower the utility expenses. The government requires a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was made after 2015, that value is based on where you live. Our certified experts 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 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 help with efficiency, keep your air clean and lengthen 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 routine maintenance. Our certified experts will clean your unit, check electrical connections and catch any problems that might be impacting the efficiency of your unit.
