One of the most essential 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 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 nearly half of your total heating and cooling costs, so we want to help you do everything you can to make sure you’re cool while keeping down costs.
If you’re considering 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 bills. The government mandates a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was manufactured after 2015, that number is based on region. Our certified experts will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best selection when thinking about air conditioner replacement.
If you’re hoping to get the most efficiency possible out of your existing unit, there are a variety of things you can do. First, as we always try to remind people, swap 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 improve the life of your unit. We don’t want to sound like a broken record, but it’s important.
Another thing to do is always have annual maintenance. Our certified technicians will clean your unit, check electrical connections and note any problems that could be inhibiting the efficiency of your unit.
