Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016One of the most significant things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, next to 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 current system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling costs can make up nearly half of your total energy expenses, so we want to help you do everything you can to make sure you’re cool while keeping down costs. If you’re thinking about air conditioner replacement you’ve probably noticed 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 orders a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was manufactured after 2015, that value 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 current unit, there are a variety 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 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 essential. Another thing to do is always have routine maintenance. Our certified experts will clean your unit, check electrical connections and notice any problems that may be impacting the efficiency of your unit. Our team will work to keep you comfortable and save you money. We know what a large investment your air conditioner is and we want to keep it working at its best and help you save money on your utility bills in the process.
