One of the most essential 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 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 close to half of your total utility costs, so we want to help you do everything you can to not only keep cool, but keep costs down.
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 utility costs. The government mandates a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was manufactured after 2015, that rating is based on region. Our certified experts 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 hoping 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 operate 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 important.
Another thing to do is stay on top of routine maintenance. Our certified professionals will clean your unit, check electrical connections and notice any problems that may 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 running at its best and help you save money on your energy bills in the process. Give us a call at 270-358-3167.
