One of the most significant things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, next to keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are in the market for an air conditioner replacement or would like 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 heating and cooling bills, so we want to help you do everything you can to not only keep cool, but keep costs down.
If you’re looking into 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 energy costs. The government mandates a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was made after 2015, that number is based on where you live. Our certified pros will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best decision when thinking about air conditioner replacement.
If you’re wanting to get the most efficiency possible out of your present unit, there are a variety 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 work 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 keep up with 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 heating and cooling bills in the process. Give us a call at 815-410-1128.
