Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

Energy efficiency, aside from keeping cool, is one of the most significant features that homeowners search for today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling fees make up almost half of every homeowner’s total utility bills, so staying energy efficient doesn’t only extend 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 impact your comfort.

There are several features and things to look for in an air conditioner to know that it is as energy efficient as possible:

  1. SEER ratings – Each air conditioner has one and it acknowledges 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 fees could be. For the air conditioners manufactured after 2015, the government mandates a minimum SEER rating based on your region, so newer systems can be the better route when comparing efficiency. So if you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Air Alliance Team or only checking the SEER rating of your current system, knowing the number can provide you with a lot of important information.
  2. Air filters – Swapping the air filter in your air conditioner is a simple, but important way to increase efficiency. Dirty air filters cause 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.
  3. Annual maintenance – This has more than likely been drilled into your head multiple times from us, but we can’t push how important annual check-ups are for your system. Our experts will review electrical components, clean your unit and catch any potential problems before they become major issues, potentially harming the efficiency of your unit.
