Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

Cooling

Energy efficiency, aside from staying cool, is one of the most vital features that homeowners want today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling bills make up almost 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 get the greatest 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 and every air conditioner has this rating and it evaluates 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 the air conditioners manufactured after 2015, the government mandates a minimum SEER rating reliant 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 True Heating & Cooling or just checking the SEER rating of your current system, having the number can provide you with a lot of important information.
  2. Air filters – Swapping the air filter in your air conditioner is a quick, but key way to improve efficiency. Dirty air filters force 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 better, 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 check electrical components, clean your unit and catch any potential problems before they become major issues, potentially impacting the efficiency of your unit.
