One of the most essential things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, other than 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 an existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling bills can make up close to 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 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 energy expenses. The government requires a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was made after 2015, that rating is based on location. Our certified professionals will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best selection when looking into air conditioner replacement.
If you’re wanting to get the most efficiency possible out of your current unit, there are a host 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 improve 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 annual maintenance. Our certified technicians will clean your unit, check electrical connections and notice any problems that may 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 (815)914-6197.
