One of the most important things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, aside from 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 heating and cooling costs, so we want to help you do everything you can to make sure you’re cool while keeping down costs.
If you’re considering 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 heating and cooling costs. The government mandates a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was produced after 2015, that rating is based on where you live. Our certified professionals will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best selection when considering air conditioner replacement.
If you’re hoping to get the most efficiency possible out of your current 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 work 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 a big deal.
Another thing to do is keep up with routine maintenance. Our certified experts will clean your unit, check electrical connections and catch any problems that might be affecting the efficiency of your unit.
Our experts 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 239-241-5318.
