Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016One of the most important things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, next to 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 costs can make up nearly half of your total utility expenses, so we want to help you do everything you can to not only keep cool, but keep costs down. 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 measurement of the efficiency of your air conditioner. The higher the SEER rating, the higher the efficiency, which means the lower the heating and cooling bills. The government mandates a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was made 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 choice when thinking about air conditioner replacement. If you’re looking 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, switch out 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 essential. Another thing to do is stay on top of annual maintenance. Our certified professionals will clean your unit, check electrical connections and note any problems that could be impacting the efficiency of your unit. Our experts will work to keep you comfortable and save you money. We know what a huge investment your air conditioner is and we want to keep it running at its best and help you save money on your utility bills in the process.
