Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

Energy efficiency, aside from staying cool, is one of the most significant features that homeowners look for today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling costs make up approximately half of every homeowner’s total utility bills, so remaining energy efficient doesn’t only extend the life of your system and help our planet, but it could also impact your wallet. Whether you might replace your air conditioner or just obtain the best efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can impact your comfort.

There are many features and items to look for in an air conditioner to ensure that it is as energy efficient as possible:

  1. SEER ratings – Every single air conditioner has this rating and it measures the efficiency of your system. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio; the higher the SEER rating, the superior the efficiency and the lower your utility costs could be. For every air conditioner manufactured after 2015, the government mandates a minimum SEER rating based on your region, so newer systems offer a better route when comparing efficiency. Whether you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at B&D Air Conditioning or just checking the SEER rating of your current system, having the number can provide you with lots of important information.
  2. Air filters – Changing the air filter in your air conditioner is an easy, but significant way to increase efficiency. Dirty air filters influence your system to work harder than it should to keep you cool. Not only can a new air filter help you have a system operating more efficiently, it can also keep your indoor air clean.
  3. Annual maintenance – This has probably been drilled into your head multiple times from us, but we can’t push how important regular check-ups are for your system. Our experts will check electrical components, clean your unit and monitor any potential problems before they become larger issues, potentially affecting the efficiency of your unit.
