Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

Energy efficiency, aside from keeping cool, is one of the most significant features that homeowners want today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling fees make up nearly half of every homeowner’s total utility bills, so remaining energy efficient doesn’t only extend the life of your system and help our planet, but it could also impact your wallet. Whether you want to replace your air conditioner or just receive the optimum efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can impact your comfort.

There are a number of features and factors to look for in an air conditioner to make sure that it is as energy efficient as possible:

  1. SEER ratings – Each 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 greater the efficiency and the lower your utility bills could be. For all air conditioners manufactured after 2015, the government requires a minimum SEER rating based on your region, so newer systems offer a better route when comparing efficiency. Regardless if you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Air Temperature Control or just checking the SEER rating of your present system, understanding the number can provide you with some important information.
  2. Air filters – Changing the air filter in your air conditioner is a quick, but important way to increase efficiency. Dirty air filters cause your system to work harder than it should to keep you cool. Not only can a clean air filter help you have a system operating more efficiently, it can also keep your indoor air clean.
  3. Annual maintenance – This has more than likely been drilled into your head repeatedly from us, but we can’t emphasize how important regular check-ups are for your system. Our experts will review electrical components, clean your unit and identify any potential problems before they become larger issues, potentially affecting the efficiency of your unit.
