Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016One of the most essential 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 wanting to get the most out of the efficiency of your existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling costs can make up nearly half of your total utility expenses, so we want to help you do everything you can to keep you cool and keep your costs down. If you’re thinking about air conditioner replacement you’ve probably noted that each unit has a SEER rating. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, and is an indication of the efficiency of your air conditioner. The higher the SEER rating, the higher the efficiency, which means the lower the energy expenses. The government requires a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was manufactured 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 selection when considering air conditioner replacement. If you’re looking to get the most efficiency possible out of your current unit, there are a number 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 help 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 regular maintenance. Our certified technicians will clean your unit, check electrical connections and notice any problems that may be impacting the efficiency of your unit. Our team 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 operating at its best and help you save money on your utility bills in the process.
