Energy efficiency, aside from keeping cool, is one of the most vital features that homeowners look for today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling bills make up almost half of every homeowner’s total utility bills, so staying energy efficient doesn’t only extend the life of your system and help our planet, but it could also help your wallet. Whether you want to replace your air conditioner or just get the best efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can impact your comfort.
There are several features and things to look for in an air conditioner to ensure that it is as energy efficient as possible:
- SEER ratings – Each and every air conditioner has one and it evaluates 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 fees could be. For all air conditioners manufactured after 2015, the government has mandated a minimum SEER rating centered on your region, so newer systems can be the better route when it comes to efficiency. Whether you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Cool Power LLC or just checking the SEER rating of your present system, understanding the number can provide you with lots of important information.
- Air filters – Exchanging the air filter in your air conditioner is a quick, 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 effectively, it can also keep your indoor air clean.
- Annual maintenance – This has most likely been drilled into your head multiple times from us, but we can’t emphasize how important regular check-ups are for your system. Our experts will check electrical components, clean your unit and catch any potential problems before they become major issues, potentially harming the efficiency of your unit.
