Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

Cooling

Energy efficiency, aside from keeping 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 keeping energy efficient doesn’t only lengthen the life of your system and help the planet, but it could also aide your wallet. Whether you are looking to replace your air conditioner or just obtain the best efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can influence your comfort.

There are a number of features and things to look for in an air conditioner to ensure that it is as energy efficient as possible:

  1. SEER ratings – Each air conditioner has one and it acknowledges the efficiency of your system. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio; the higher the SEER rating, the better the efficiency and the lower your utility costs could be. For all air conditioners manufactured after 2015, the government requires a minimum SEER rating based on your region, so newer systems can be the better route when looking at efficiency. So if you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Central Heating & Plumbing or only checking the SEER rating of your existing system, knowing the number can provide you with lots of important information.
  2. Air filters – Swapping the air filter in your air conditioner is an easy, but significant way to improve efficiency. Dirty air filters influence your system to work harder than it should to keep you cool. Not only can a new air filter help you have a system operating better, it can also keep your indoor air clean.
  3. Annual maintenance – This has probably been drilled into your head repeatedly from us, but we can’t emphasize how important ongoing check-ups are for your system. Our experts will check electrical components, clean your unit and identify any potential problems before they become larger issues, potentially affecting the efficiency of your unit.
