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 an existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling costs can make up almost half of your total heating and cooling expenses, so we want to help you do everything you can to keep you cool and keep your 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 utility expenses. The government mandates 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 choice when thinking about air conditioner replacement. If you’re hoping 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, change your air filters. A dirty filter will cause your air conditioner to work 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 important. Another thing to do is always have regular maintenance. Our certified technicians will clean your unit, check electrical connections and note any problems that could be impacting 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 running at its best and help you save money on your heating and cooling bills in the process.
