One of the most important things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, next to keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are searching for an air conditioner replacement or wanting to get the most out of the efficiency of an existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling costs can make up close to half of your total heating and cooling expenses, 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 seen that 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 expenses. The government requires a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was produced after 2015, that value is based on location. Our certified pros 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 wanting 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 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 important.
Another thing to do is keep up with regular maintenance. Our certified professionals will clean your unit, check electrical connections and note any problems that could be inhibiting the efficiency of your unit.
