Energy efficiency, aside from keeping cool, is one of the most vital features that homeowners want today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling costs make up nearly half of every homeowner’s total utility bills, so remaining energy efficient doesn’t only elongate the life of your system and help the planet, but it could also aide your wallet. Whether you want to replace your air conditioner or just obtain the best efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can impact your comfort.
There are several features and things to look for in an air conditioner to make sure that it is as energy efficient as possible:
- 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 fees could be. For the air conditioners manufactured after 2015, the government mandates a minimum SEER rating centered on your region, so newer systems can be the better route when comparing efficiency. So if you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Air Service Co. or only checking the SEER rating of your present system, knowing the number can provide you with lots of important information.
- Air filters – Changing the air filter in your air conditioner is a quick, but significant 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 more effectively, it can also keep your indoor air clean.
- Annual maintenance – This has most likely been drilled into your head repeatedly from us, but we can’t stress how important annual check-ups are for your system. Our experts will check electrical components, clean your unit and catch any potential problems before they become larger issues, potentially impacting the efficiency of your unit.
