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 in the market for an air conditioner replacement or wanting to get the most out of the efficiency of your current system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling costs can make up nearly half of your total energy expenses, so we want to help you do everything you can to keep you cool and keep your costs down.

If you’re considering air conditioner replacement you’ve probably seen 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 utility expenses. The government mandates 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 looking 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, swap 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 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 keep up with annual maintenance. Our certified experts will clean your unit, check electrical connections and note any problems that could be impacting the efficiency of your unit.

Our professionals will work to keep you comfortable and save you money. We know what a huge investment your air conditioner is and we want to keep it operating at its best and help you save money on your heating and cooling bills in the process. Give us a call at 262-358-9468.
