Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

September 13, 2016

One of the most significant things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, next to keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are searching for an air conditioner replacement or would like to get the most out of the efficiency of your current system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling costs can make up close to half of your total energy costs, 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 noted that each unit has a SEER rating. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, and is a measurement of the efficiency of your air conditioner. The higher the SEER rating, the higher the efficiency, which means the lower the energy bills. The government orders a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was manufactured after 2015, that value is based on where you live. Our certified pros will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best choice when looking into air conditioner replacement.

If you’re hoping to get the most efficiency possible out of your current 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 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 important.

Another thing to do is stay on top of annual maintenance. Our certified technicians will clean your unit, check electrical connections and catch any problems that might be affecting the efficiency of your unit.

Our team 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 running at its best and help you save money on your heating and cooling bills in the process. Give us a call at 361-265-4371.
