One of the most important things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, next to keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are searching for an air conditioner replacement or would like to get the most out of the efficiency of your existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling bills can make up close to half of your total energy 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 a reflection of the efficiency of your air conditioner. The higher the SEER rating, the higher the efficiency, which means the lower the heating and cooling costs. The government orders a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was produced after 2015, that value is based on location. Our certified professionals 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 hoping to get the most efficiency possible out of your current unit, there are a number 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 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 a big deal.
Another thing to do is stay on top of routine maintenance. Our certified professionals will clean your unit, check electrical connections and note any problems that could be impacting the efficiency of your unit.
