Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

Energy efficiency, aside from keeping cool, is one of the most important features that homeowners want today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling costs make up approximately half of every homeowner’s total utility bills, so keeping energy efficient doesn’t only extend the life of your system and help the planet, but it could also impact your wallet. Whether you might replace your air conditioner or just obtain the best efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can influence your comfort.

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

  1. SEER ratings – Each and every air conditioner has one and it evaluates 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 are also the better route when it comes to efficiency. Regardless if you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Cool Air Solutions or only checking the SEER rating of your current system, knowing the number can provide you with a lot of important information.
  2. Air filters – Exchanging the air filter in your air conditioner is a quick, but important way to increase 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 more effectively, it can also keep your indoor air clean.
  3. Annual maintenance – This has probably been drilled into your head over and over again from us, but we can’t emphasize how important regular check-ups are for your system. Our experts will review electrical components, clean your unit and catch any potential problems before they become larger issues, potentially affecting the efficiency of your unit.
