Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

September 13, 2016

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 bills can make up nearly half of your total energy expenses, 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 noted 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 heating and cooling costs. The government orders a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was manufactured after 2015, that number is based on location. Our certified pros will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best choice when considering 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 help with efficiency, keep your air clean and extend 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 always have regular 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 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 utility bills in the process. Give us a call at 540-369-3790.
