Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016One of the most essential things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, next to keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are looking for an air conditioner replacement or wanting to get the most out of the efficiency of your existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling bills can make up nearly half of your total heating and cooling expenses, so we want to help you do everything you can to make sure you’re cool while keeping down costs. If you’re looking into air conditioner replacement you’ve probably seen that each unit has a SEER rating. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, and is a reflection of the efficiency of your air conditioner. The higher the SEER rating, the higher the efficiency, which means the lower the energy costs. The government requires a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was produced 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 selection when considering air conditioner replacement. If you’re looking to get the most efficiency possible out of your present unit, there are a variety of things you can do. First, as we always try to remind people, swap out your air filters.

We don’t want to sound like a broken record, but it’s essential. Another thing to do is always have annual maintenance. Our certified experts will clean your unit, check electrical connections and catch any problems that might be inhibiting the efficiency of your unit. Our professionals will work to keep you comfortable and save you money.
