One of the most essential things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, other than keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are in the market 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 expenses can make up almost half of your total utility bills, so we want to help you do everything you can to not only keep cool, but keep costs down.
If you’re considering air conditioner replacement you’ve probably seen 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 energy bills. The government requires a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was manufactured after 2015, that number 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 looking to get the most efficiency possible out of your current unit, there are a variety of things you can do. First, as we always try to remind people, change your air filters. A dirty filter will cause your air conditioner to run harder to keep you cool. Keeping it clean will improve 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 essential.
Another thing to do is keep up with routine maintenance. Our certified professionals will clean your unit, check electrical connections and note any problems that could be impacting the efficiency of your unit.
