Energy efficiency, aside from remaining cool, is one of the most significant features that homeowners want today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling costs make up nearly half of every homeowner’s total utility bills, so remaining energy efficient doesn’t only elongate the life of your system and help Earth, but it could also aide your wallet. Whether you are looking to replace your air conditioner or just get the best efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can influence your comfort.
There are many features and items to look for in an air conditioner to ensure that it is as energy efficient as possible:
SEER ratings – Each air conditioner has a SEER rating and it acknowledges 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 costs could be. For every air conditioner manufactured after 2015, the government mandates a minimum SEER rating reliant on your region, so newer systems can be the better route when comparing efficiency. Regardless if you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at All Seasons Comfort Systems Inc or just checking the SEER rating of your existing system, knowing the number can provide you with some important information.
Air filters – Exchanging the air filter in your air conditioner is a quick, but important way to increase efficiency. Dirty air filters influence your system to work harder than it should to keep you cool. Not only can a new air filter help you have a system operating more efficiently, it can also keep your indoor air clean.
Annual maintenance – This has most likely been drilled into your head over and over again from us, but we can’t emphasize how important annual check-ups are for your system. Our experts will examine electrical components, clean your unit and catch any potential problems before they become bigger issues, potentially affecting the efficiency of your unit.
