Energy efficiency, aside from keeping cool, is one of the most significant 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 remaining energy efficient doesn’t only extend the life of your system and help our planet, but it could also aide your wallet. Whether you might replace your air conditioner or just get the greatest efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can affect your comfort.
There are many features and items to look for in an air conditioner to know that it is as energy efficient as possible:
- SEER ratings – Every single air conditioner has one 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 all air conditioners manufactured after 2015, the government requires a minimum SEER rating centered on your region, so newer systems are also the better route when it comes to efficiency. Whether you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Integrity AC & Heating LLC or only checking the SEER rating of your existing system, having the number can provide you with lots of important information.
- Air filters – Exchanging the air filter in your air conditioner is a simple, but significant way to enhance efficiency. Dirty air filters influence your system to work harder than it should to keep you cool. Not only can a new air filter help you have a system operating more efficiently, it can also keep your indoor air clean.
- Annual maintenance – This has most likely been drilled into your head over and over again from us, but we can’t emphasize how important regular check-ups are for your system. Our experts will examine electrical components, clean your unit and catch any potential problems before they become major issues, potentially affecting the efficiency of your unit.
