One of the most essential things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, next to keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are in the market 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 costs can make up almost half of your total energy expenses, 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 measurement 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 produced after 2015, that value is based on where you live. Our certified experts will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best decision 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 run 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 important.
Another thing to do is keep up with annual maintenance. Our certified experts will clean your unit, check electrical connections and note any problems that could be affecting the efficiency of your unit.
