Energy efficiency, aside from staying cool, is one of the most vital features that homeowners want today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling fees make up nearly half of every homeowner’s total utility bills, so keeping energy efficient doesn’t only extend the life of your system and help Earth, but it could also help your wallet. Whether you are looking to replace your air conditioner or just get the best efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can influence 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 – Every single 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 superior the efficiency and the lower your utility bills could be. For every air conditioner manufactured after 2015, the government mandates 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 Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC or just checking the SEER rating of your current system, knowing 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 enhance efficiency. Dirty air filters cause your system to work harder than it should to keep you cool. Not only can a clean air filter help you have a system operating better, it can also keep your indoor air clean.
- Annual maintenance – This has probably been drilled into your head repeatedly from us, but we can’t push how important regular check-ups are for your system. Our experts will review electrical components, clean your unit and monitor any potential problems before they become major issues, potentially impacting the efficiency of your unit.
