Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016One 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 an existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling costs can make up almost half of your total utility bills, so we want to help you do everything you can to keep you cool and keep your costs down. 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 a reflection of the efficiency of your air conditioner. The higher the SEER rating, the higher the efficiency, which means the lower the heating and cooling costs. The government requires a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was produced after 2015, that number is based on location. Our certified pros will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best decision when considering air conditioner replacement. If you’re looking 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 run harder to keep you cool. Keeping it clean will assist 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 always have routine maintenance. Our certified professionals will clean your unit, check electrical connections and notice any problems that may be affecting the efficiency of your unit. Our professionals 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 energy bills in the process.
