Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016 Energy efficiency, aside from staying cool, is one of the most vital features that homeowners look for today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling fees make up almost half of every homeowner’s total utility bills, so remaining energy efficient doesn’t only extend the life of your system and help Earth, but it could also aide your wallet. Whether you want to replace your air conditioner or just receive the best efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can impact 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 – Each air conditioner has one and it measures 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 fees could be. For the air conditioners manufactured after 2015, the government has mandated a minimum SEER rating reliant on your region, so newer systems are also the better route when looking at efficiency. Whether you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Twin Air LLC or simply checking the SEER rating of your present system, understanding the number can provide you with some important information. Air filters – Exchanging the air filter in your air conditioner is an easy, but significant way to increase efficiency. Dirty air filters influence 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 more than 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 review electrical components, clean your unit and catch any potential problems before they become larger issues, potentially impacting the efficiency of your unit.
