Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016One of the most significant things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, aside from 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 your existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling bills can make up nearly half of your total utility expenses, 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 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 expenses. The government requires a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was manufactured after 2015, that value is based on location. Our certified experts will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best selection when considering air conditioner replacement. If you’re wanting to get the most efficiency possible out of your present unit, there are a variety of things you can do. First, as we always try to remind people, swap out your air filters. A dirty filter will cause your air conditioner to run harder to keep you cool. Keeping it clean will help with efficiency, keep your air clean and improve 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 routine maintenance. Our certified experts will clean your unit, check electrical connections and notice any problems that may be affecting the efficiency of your unit. Our experts will work to keep you comfortable and save you money.
