One of the most important things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, other than keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are searching for an air conditioner replacement or looking to get the most out of the efficiency of an existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling costs can make up close to half of your total energy bills, so we want to help you do everything you can to not only keep cool, but keep costs down.
If you’re thinking about air conditioner replacement you’ve probably noted 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 utility costs. The government mandates a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was produced after 2015, that number is based on region. Our certified professionals 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 wanting to get the most efficiency possible out of your existing unit, there are a number of things you can do. First, as we always try to remind people, switch out your air filters. A dirty filter will cause your air conditioner to run harder to keep you cool. Keeping it clean will assist with efficiency, keep your air clean and extend the life of your unit. We don’t want to sound like a broken record, but it’s important.
Another thing to do is stay on top of annual maintenance. Our certified experts will clean your unit, check electrical connections and note any problems that could be affecting the efficiency of your unit.
Our professionals will work to keep you comfortable and save you money. We know what a big 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 717-220-4502.
