Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

Energy efficiency, aside from keeping cool, is one of the most important features that homeowners look for today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling fees make up approximately half of every homeowner’s total utility bills, so keeping energy efficient doesn’t only extend the life of your system and help the planet, but it could also help your wallet. Whether you are looking to replace your air conditioner or just receive the greatest efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can impact your comfort.

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

  1. SEER ratings – Each and every air conditioner has a SEER rating and it measures 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 all 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 looking at efficiency. Whether you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Select Comfort System Heating & Air Conditioning or only checking the SEER rating of your existing system, understanding the number can provide you with some important information.
  2. Air filters – Changing the air filter in your air conditioner is a simple, but important way to increase 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 repeatedly 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 catch any potential problems before they become bigger issues, potentially impacting the efficiency of your unit.
