One of the most essential things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, other than keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are looking 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 costs can make up close to half of your total utility bills, so we want to help you do everything you can to not only keep cool, but keep 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 utility bills. The government mandates a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was produced after 2015, that number is based on location. Our certified pros will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best selection when thinking about air conditioner replacement.
If you’re hoping to get the most efficiency possible out of your existing 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 improve 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 keep up with annual maintenance. Our certified professionals will clean your unit, check electrical connections and notice any problems that may be impacting the efficiency of your unit.
