Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016One of the most significant 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 wanting to get the most out of the efficiency of an existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling expenses can make up almost half of your total energy costs, 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 noticed 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 energy expenses. The government mandates a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was produced after 2015, that number is based on where you live. Our certified pros will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best choice when thinking about air conditioner replacement. If you’re hoping to get the most efficiency possible out of your present 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 work harder to keep you cool. Keeping it clean will assist with efficiency, keep your air clean and lengthen 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 catch any problems that might be inhibiting the efficiency of your unit. Our professionals will work to keep you comfortable and save you money. We know what a huge investment your air conditioner is and we want to keep it working at its best and help you save money on your heating and cooling bills in the process.
