Energy efficiency, aside from remaining 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 staying energy efficient doesn’t only elongate the life of your system and help our planet, but it could also aide your wallet. Whether you are looking to replace your air conditioner or just obtain the greatest efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can affect your comfort.
There are many features and things to look for in an air conditioner to know that it is as energy efficient as possible:
- SEER ratings – Each and every air conditioner has this rating and it acknowledges 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 costs could be. For the air conditioners manufactured after 2015, the government requires a minimum SEER rating reliant on your region, so newer systems offer a better route when comparing efficiency. So if you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at E.B. Air, LLC or only checking the SEER rating of your present system, having the number can provide you with lots of important information.
- Air filters – Changing the air filter in your air conditioner is an easy, 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 more efficiently, it can also keep your indoor air clean.
- Annual maintenance – This has more than likely been drilled into your head multiple times from us, but we can’t stress how important ongoing check-ups are for your system. Our experts will examine electrical components, clean your unit and monitor any potential problems before they become bigger issues, potentially impacting the efficiency of your unit.
