One 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 looking to get the most out of the efficiency of your existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling bills can make up almost half of your total energy expenses, so we want to help you do everything you can to keep you cool and keep your costs down.
If you’re considering 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 costs. The government mandates a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was manufactured after 2015, that number is based on location. Our certified professionals will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best decision when looking into air conditioner replacement.
If you’re wanting to get the most efficiency possible out of your existing 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 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 keep up with routine maintenance. Our certified technicians 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 operating at its best and help you save money on your energy bills in the process. Give us a call at 256-801-4701.
