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 looking for an air conditioner replacement or would like 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 keep you cool and keep your costs down. 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 an indication of the efficiency of your air conditioner. The higher the SEER rating, the higher the efficiency, which means the lower the energy costs. The government requires a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was made after 2015, that rating is based on where you live. Our certified pros 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 looking to get the most efficiency possible out of your current unit, there are a host of things you can do. First, as we always try to remind people, swap 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 important. Another thing to do is stay on top of annual maintenance. Our certified technicians will clean your unit, check electrical connections and notice any problems that may be affecting the efficiency of your unit. Our team 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 utility bills in the process.
