Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

Energy efficiency, aside from remaining cool, is one of the most significant features that homeowners search for today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling fees make up approximately half of every homeowner’s total utility bills, so remaining energy efficient doesn’t only elongate the life of your system and help Earth, but it could also help your wallet. Whether you might replace your air conditioner or just receive the optimum efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can influence your comfort.

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

  1. SEER ratings – Every single air conditioner has this rating and it evaluates 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 all air conditioners manufactured after 2015, the government requires a minimum SEER rating centered on your region, so newer systems can be the better route when it comes to efficiency. Whether you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at KDM Service Corporation or simply checking the SEER rating of your current system, having the number can provide you with a lot of important information.
  2. Air filters – Changing the air filter in your air conditioner is a quick, but important way to improve efficiency. Dirty air filters cause your system to work harder than it should to keep you cool. Not only can a clean air filter help you have a system operating better, it can also keep your indoor air clean.
  3. Annual maintenance – This has more than likely been drilled into your head repeatedly from us, but we can’t emphasize how important regular check-ups are for your system. Our experts will review electrical components, clean your unit and identify any potential problems before they become bigger issues, potentially impacting the efficiency of your unit.
