Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016One of the most significant things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, next to keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are searching for an air conditioner replacement or wanting to get the most out of the efficiency of your current system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling expenses can make up close to half of your total utility costs, so we want to help you do everything you can to make sure you’re cool while keeping down costs. 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 measurement 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 mandates a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was produced after 2015, that rating 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 looking into air conditioner replacement. If you’re wanting to get the most efficiency possible out of your present unit, there are a host 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 improve 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 essential. Another thing to do is keep up with routine maintenance. Our certified experts will clean your unit, check electrical connections and catch any problems that might be inhibiting the efficiency of your unit. Our professionals will work to keep you comfortable and save you money. We know what a large investment your air conditioner is and we want to keep it working at its best and help you save money on your heating and cooling bills in the process.
