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 looking to get the most out of the efficiency of an existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling expenses can make up close to half of your total heating and cooling costs, so we want to help you do everything you can to keep you cool and keep your 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 measurement 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 requires a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was made after 2015, that rating is based on region. Our certified professionals will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best decision when thinking about air conditioner replacement.
If you’re hoping to get the most efficiency possible out of your existing unit, there are a host of things you can do. First, as we always try to remind people, change 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 a big deal.
Another thing to do is keep up with annual maintenance. Our certified professionals will clean your unit, check electrical connections and catch any problems that might be inhibiting the efficiency of your unit.
