One of the most essential things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, other than keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are searching for an air conditioner replacement or wanting to get the most out of the efficiency of your existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling expenses can make up almost half of your total heating and cooling costs, so we want to help you do everything you can to keep you cool and keep your costs down.
If you’re looking into air conditioner replacement you’ve probably seen 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 orders a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was made after 2015, that value is based on location. Our certified experts 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 hoping 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 work harder to keep you cool. Keeping it clean will assist with efficiency, keep your air clean and improve the life of your unit. We don’t want to sound like a broken record, but it’s important.
Another thing to do is keep up with routine maintenance. Our certified professionals will clean your unit, check electrical connections and notice any problems that may be impacting the efficiency of your unit.
