One of the most important things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, next to keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are looking 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 nearly half of your total energy expenses, 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 reflection 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 requires a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was manufactured after 2015, that value is based on region. Our certified experts 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 wanting to get the most efficiency possible out of your current unit, there are a variety 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 operate harder to keep you cool. Keeping it clean will help with 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 regular maintenance. Our certified professionals will clean your unit, check electrical connections and note any problems that could be impacting the efficiency of your unit.
