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 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 expenses can make up nearly half of your total utility expenses, so we want to help you do everything you can to make sure you’re cool while keeping down costs. If you’re thinking about air conditioner replacement you’ve probably seen 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 utility bills. The government requires a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was made after 2015, that rating is based on region. Our certified professionals 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, switch out 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 extend the life of your unit. We don’t want to sound like a broken record, but it’s a big deal. Another thing to do is stay on top of regular maintenance. Our certified professionals will clean your unit, check electrical connections and notice any problems that may be impacting the efficiency of your unit. Our professionals will work to keep you comfortable and save you money. We know what a big investment your air conditioner is and we want to keep it running at its best and help you save money on your energy bills in the process.
