One of the most significant things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, other than keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are in the market for an air conditioner replacement or would like to get the most out of the efficiency of your existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling costs can make up almost 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 expenses. The government mandates a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was manufactured 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 selection when looking into air conditioner replacement.
If you’re hoping to get the most efficiency possible out of your present unit, there are a number 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 stay on top of routine maintenance. Our certified technicians will clean your unit, check electrical connections and catch any problems that might be inhibiting the efficiency of your unit.
