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 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 nearly half of your total heating and cooling 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 seen 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 utility expenses. The government requires a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was manufactured after 2015, that rating is based on where you live. Our certified professionals will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best selection when considering air conditioner replacement. If you’re wanting to get the most efficiency possible out of your present unit, there are a number 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 improve the life of your unit. We don’t want to sound like a broken record, but it’s important. Another thing to do is stay on top of 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 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 working at its best and help you save money on your energy bills in the process.
