Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

Energy efficiency, aside from remaining cool, is one of the most significant features that homeowners look for today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling bills make up approximately half of every homeowner’s total utility bills, so staying energy efficient doesn’t only lengthen the life of your system and help Earth, but it could also help your wallet. Whether you want to replace your air conditioner or just obtain the optimum efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can affect your comfort.

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

  1. SEER ratings – Every single air conditioner has a SEER rating and it acknowledges the efficiency of your system. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio; the higher the SEER rating, the better the efficiency and the lower your utility bills could be. For all air conditioners manufactured after 2015, the government has mandated a minimum SEER rating reliant on your region, so newer systems offer a better route when comparing efficiency. Regardless if you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces or just checking the SEER rating of your current system, understanding the number can provide you with lots of important information.
  2. Air filters – Changing the air filter in your air conditioner is an easy, but significant 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 multiple times from us, but we can’t stress how important ongoing check-ups are for your system. Our experts will review electrical components, clean your unit and identify any potential problems before they become larger issues, potentially affecting the efficiency of your unit.
