Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

Energy efficiency, aside from staying cool, is one of the most significant 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 remaining energy efficient doesn’t only lengthen the life of your system and help the planet, but it could also impact your wallet. Whether you want to replace your air conditioner or just receive the optimum 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 know that it is as energy efficient as possible:

  1. SEER ratings – Each and every air conditioner has a SEER rating and it acknowledges the efficiency of your system. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio; the higher the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the lower your utility costs could be. For every air conditioner manufactured after 2015, the government requires a minimum SEER rating reliant on your region, so newer systems can be the better route when it comes to efficiency. So if you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Air-Right Energy Design, Inc. or just checking the SEER rating of your existing 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 an easy, but key way to improve 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 more than likely been drilled into your head over and over again from us, but we can’t push how important annual 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 harming the efficiency of your unit.
