Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016 Energy efficiency, aside from remaining cool, is one of the most important features that homeowners look for today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling fees make up nearly half of every homeowner’s total utility bills, so keeping energy efficient doesn’t only lengthen the life of your system and help Earth, but it could also aide your wallet. Whether you are looking to replace your air conditioner or just obtain the best efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can impact your comfort. There are several features and things to look for in an air conditioner to know that it is as energy efficient as possible: SEER ratings – Each and every air conditioner has one and it acknowledges the efficiency of your system. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio; the higher the SEER rating, the better the efficiency and the lower your utility fees could be. For the air conditioners manufactured after 2015, the government mandates a minimum SEER rating based on your region, so newer systems are also the better route when looking at efficiency. So if you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Dynamic Comfort Solutions or only checking the SEER rating of your current system, understanding the number can provide you with a lot of important information. Air filters – Changing the air filter in your air conditioner is a simple, but significant way to improve 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 better, it can also keep your indoor air clean. Annual maintenance – This has probably been drilled into your head over and over again from us, but we can’t emphasize how important regular check-ups are for your system. Our experts will check electrical components, clean your unit and catch any potential problems before they become larger issues, potentially affecting the efficiency of your unit.
