One of the most important things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, aside from 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 your existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling expenses can make up nearly half of your total energy costs, so we want to help you do everything you can to not only keep cool, but keep costs down.
If you’re thinking about air conditioner replacement you’ve probably noted that each unit has a SEER rating. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, and is a measurement 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 orders a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was made after 2015, that rating 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 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 essential.
Another thing to do is stay on top of annual maintenance. Our certified technicians will clean your unit, check electrical connections and notice any problems that may be affecting the efficiency of your unit.
