Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016One of the most important things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, next to keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are in the market for an air conditioner replacement or would like 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 heating and cooling expenses, so we want to help you do everything you can to make sure you’re cool while keeping down costs. If you’re thinking about 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 expenses. The government mandates a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was manufactured after 2015, that rating is based on location. Our certified pros 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 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, 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 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 always have routine maintenance. Our certified technicians will clean your unit, check electrical connections and note any problems that could be inhibiting the efficiency of your unit. Our team will work to keep you comfortable and save you money.
