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 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 energy costs, so we want to help you do everything you can to make sure you’re cool while keeping down costs. 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 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 requires a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was made after 2015, that value is based on location. Our certified experts will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best decision when looking into air conditioner replacement. If you’re looking to get the most efficiency possible out of your present 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 work harder to keep you cool. Keeping it clean will help 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 stay on top of routine maintenance. Our certified experts will clean your unit, check electrical connections and note any problems that could be affecting the efficiency of your unit. Our professionals will work to keep you comfortable and save you money.
