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 looking to get the most out of the efficiency of your existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling costs can make up close to half of your total heating and cooling bills, so we want to help you do everything you can to keep you cool and keep your costs down.
If you’re looking into air conditioner replacement you’ve probably seen that 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 utility costs. The government orders 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 selection when considering air conditioner replacement.
If you’re hoping to get the most efficiency possible out of your current unit, there are a host 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 operate harder to keep you cool. Keeping it clean will improve 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 important.
Another thing to do is always have regular maintenance. Our certified experts will clean your unit, check electrical connections and catch any problems that might be affecting the efficiency of your unit.
