Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

Energy efficiency, aside from keeping cool, is one of the most significant features that homeowners want today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling bills make up nearly half of every homeowner’s total utility bills, so keeping energy efficient doesn’t only elongate the life of your system and help the planet, but it could also aide your wallet. Whether you want to replace your air conditioner or just get the best efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can affect your comfort.

There are several features and factors to look for in an air conditioner to make sure that it is as energy efficient as possible:

  1. SEER ratings – Each air conditioner has this rating and it acknowledges the efficiency of your system. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio; the higher the SEER rating, the better the efficiency and the lower your utility bills could be. For the air conditioners manufactured after 2015, the government requires a minimum SEER rating centered on your region, so newer systems can be the better route when looking at efficiency. So if you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Jett's Heating & Air Inc. or only checking the SEER rating of your existing system, understanding the number can provide you with lots of important information.
  2. Air filters – Swapping the air filter in your air conditioner is a simple, but key way to improve efficiency. Dirty air filters force your system to work harder than it should to keep you cool. Not only can a fresh air filter help you have a system operating more efficiently, it can also keep your indoor air clean.
  3. Annual maintenance – This has probably been drilled into your head multiple times from us, but we can’t emphasize how important ongoing check-ups are for your system. Our experts will review electrical components, clean your unit and monitor any potential problems before they become bigger issues, potentially impacting the efficiency of your unit.
