Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016One of the most significant 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 current system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling bills can make up nearly half of your total utility 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 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 utility bills. The government requires a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was manufactured after 2015, that rating is based on location. Our certified professionals will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best decision when considering air conditioner replacement. If you’re hoping to get the most efficiency possible out of your present 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 operate harder to keep you cool. Keeping it clean will assist with efficiency, keep your air clean and lengthen 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 professionals will clean your unit, check electrical connections and notice any problems that may be inhibiting the efficiency of your unit. Our team 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 operating at its best and help you save money on your heating and cooling bills in the process.
