Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016One of the most important things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, next to keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are looking for an air conditioner replacement or wanting to get the most out of the efficiency of an existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling costs can make up nearly half of your total heating and cooling bills, so we want to help you do everything you can to make sure you’re cool while keeping down costs. If you’re looking into air conditioner replacement you’ve probably noted that each unit has a SEER rating. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, and is an indication of the efficiency of your air conditioner. The higher the SEER rating, the higher the efficiency, which means the lower the utility bills. The government requires a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was manufactured after 2015, that rating is based on where you live. Our certified experts will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best choice when considering air conditioner replacement. If you’re hoping 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, switch out your air filters. A dirty filter will cause your air conditioner to run harder to keep you cool. Keeping it clean will assist 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 always have regular maintenance. Our certified technicians will clean your unit, check electrical connections and catch any problems that might be impacting the efficiency of your unit. Our team 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 utility bills in the process.
