Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

Energy efficiency, aside from staying cool, is one of the most significant features that homeowners search for 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 elongate the life of your system and help the planet, but it could also impact your wallet. Whether you are looking to replace your air conditioner or just receive the best efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can influence your comfort.

There are a number of 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 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 costs could be. For all air conditioners manufactured after 2015, the government has mandated a minimum SEER rating centered on your region, so newer systems offer a better route when it comes to efficiency. So if you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Anderson Heating & A/C or simply checking the SEER rating of your existing system, having the number can provide you with a lot of important information.
  2. Air filters – Swapping the air filter in your air conditioner is an easy, 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 new 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 over and over again from us, but we can’t stress how important ongoing check-ups are for your system. Our experts will check electrical components, clean your unit and monitor any potential problems before they become major issues, potentially harming the efficiency of your unit.
