Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016One of the most significant things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, aside from keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are looking for an air conditioner replacement or looking to get the most out of the efficiency of your existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling expenses can make up close to half of your total heating and cooling 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 noted that 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 energy expenses. The government orders a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was produced 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 considering air conditioner replacement. If you’re wanting to get the most efficiency possible out of your existing 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 work harder to keep you cool. Keeping it clean will assist with 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 regular maintenance. Our certified experts will clean your unit, check electrical connections and catch any problems that might be impacting the efficiency of your unit. Our experts 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.
