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 bills, so we want to help you do everything you can to keep you cool and keep your costs down. If you’re considering air conditioner replacement you’ve probably noted 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 made after 2015, that rating is based on region. Our certified pros 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 wanting to get the most efficiency possible out of your current unit, there are a host 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 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 important. Another thing to do is keep up with routine maintenance. Our certified technicians will clean your unit, check electrical connections and note any problems that could be impacting the efficiency of your unit. Our professionals 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 running at its best and help you save money on your energy bills in the process.
