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 looking for an air conditioner replacement or wanting to get the most out of the efficiency of your current system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling expenses can make up almost half of your total energy bills, 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 seen 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 costs. The government orders a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was produced after 2015, that rating is based on location. Our certified professionals will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best decision when thinking about air conditioner replacement. If you’re looking to get the most efficiency possible out of your current 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 run 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 professionals will clean your unit, check electrical connections and notice any problems that may be inhibiting the efficiency of your unit. Our team 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 working at its best and help you save money on your heating and cooling bills in the process.
