Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016One of the most essential things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, aside from keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are in the market for an air conditioner replacement or looking to get the most out of the efficiency of your current system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling bills can make up close to half of your total energy expenses, so we want to help you do everything you can to make sure you’re cool while keeping down costs. If you’re looking into 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 costs. The government mandates a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was made after 2015, that number is based on region. Our certified experts will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best decision when thinking about air conditioner replacement. If you’re hoping 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, change your air filters. A dirty filter will cause your air conditioner to operate harder to keep you cool. Keeping it clean will assist 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 always have annual maintenance. Our certified technicians will clean your unit, check electrical connections and catch any problems that might 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 working at its best and help you save money on your utility bills in the process.
