Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

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

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

  1. SEER ratings – Each air conditioner has a SEER rating 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 based on your region, so newer systems can be the better route when it comes to efficiency. Whether you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Rescue Heating & Air or only checking the SEER rating of your present system, understanding the number can provide you with a lot of 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 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 more than likely been drilled into your head multiple times from us, but we can’t stress how important annual check-ups are for your system. Our experts will review electrical components, clean your unit and identify any potential problems before they become larger issues, potentially harming the efficiency of your unit.
