Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016One of the most essential things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, aside from 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 utility costs, so we want to help you do everything you can to keep you cool and keep your costs down. If you’re thinking about air conditioner replacement you’ve probably noticed 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 energy bills. 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 pros will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best choice when thinking about air conditioner replacement. If you’re hoping to get the most efficiency possible out of your present unit, there are a host of things you can do. First, as we always try to remind people, switch 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 extend 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 experts will clean your unit, check electrical connections and notice any problems that may be impacting the efficiency of your unit. Our professionals will work to keep you comfortable and save you money. We know what a big investment your air conditioner is and we want to keep it running at its best and help you save money on your energy bills in the process.
