Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016One of the most important 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 looking to get the most out of the efficiency of your current system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling bills can make up almost half of your total utility costs, so we want to help you do everything you can to not only keep cool, but keep costs down. If you’re considering 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 energy expenses. The government requires a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was produced after 2015, that number 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 wanting to get the most efficiency possible out of your existing unit, there are a number of things you can do. First, as we always try to remind people, change your air filters. A dirty filter will cause your air conditioner to operate harder to keep you cool. Keeping it clean will assist 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 always have routine maintenance. Our certified technicians will clean your unit, check electrical connections and catch any problems that might be affecting 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 working at its best and help you save money on your energy bills in the process.
