Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016One of the most essential things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, other than keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are looking for an air conditioner replacement or wanting to get the most out of the efficiency of your existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling bills can make up close to 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 considering 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 heating and cooling expenses. The government orders 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 selection when looking into air conditioner replacement. If you’re hoping to get the most efficiency possible out of your present unit, there are a host of things you can do. First, as we always try to remind people, switch out 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 lengthen the life of your unit. We don’t want to sound like a broken record, but it’s essential. Another thing to do is stay on top of annual maintenance. Our certified experts will clean your unit, check electrical connections and notice any problems that may be impacting the efficiency of your unit. Our professionals will work to keep you comfortable and save you money. We know what a large investment your air conditioner is and we want to keep it running at its best and help you save money on your utility bills in the process.
