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 look for today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling costs make up approximately half of every homeowner’s total utility bills, so keeping energy efficient doesn’t only elongate the life of your system and help Earth, but it could also help your wallet. Whether you are looking to replace your air conditioner or just receive the optimum efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can influence your comfort.

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

  1. SEER ratings – Each air conditioner has this rating and it measures 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 costs could be. For the air conditioners manufactured after 2015, the government mandates a minimum SEER rating reliant on your region, so newer systems offer a better route when it comes to efficiency. Whether you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Comfort Zone Inc 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 – Exchanging the air filter in your air conditioner is a simple, but key way to enhance efficiency. Dirty air filters force 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 more efficiently, it can also keep your indoor air clean.
  3. Annual maintenance – This has most likely been drilled into your head repeatedly from us, but we can’t push how important annual check-ups are for your system. Our experts will check electrical components, clean your unit and catch any potential problems before they become larger issues, potentially affecting the efficiency of your unit.
