One of the most essential things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, aside from 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 existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling bills can make up nearly half of your total utility bills, 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 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 value 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 looking into air conditioner replacement.
If you’re looking 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 help with 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 regular maintenance. Our certified experts will clean your unit, check electrical connections and note any problems that could be impacting the efficiency of your unit.
