Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

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

There are a number of features and things 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 one and it measures the efficiency of your system. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio; the higher the SEER rating, the superior the efficiency and the lower your utility bills could be. For every air conditioner manufactured after 2015, the government mandates a minimum SEER rating reliant on your region, so newer systems are also the better route when looking at efficiency. Regardless if you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Rescue Heating & Air or simply checking the SEER rating of your present system, understanding the number can provide you with some important information.
  2. Air filters – Swapping the air filter in your air conditioner is a quick, but key way to enhance efficiency. Dirty air filters cause 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 better, 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 stress how important regular check-ups are for your system. Our experts will check electrical components, clean your unit and identify any potential problems before they become larger issues, potentially harming the efficiency of your unit.
