One of the most essential things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, next to keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are looking for an air conditioner replacement or wanting to get the most out of the efficiency of an existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling costs can make up close to half of your total energy expenses, so we want to help you do everything you can to make sure you’re cool while keeping down costs.
If you’re looking into air conditioner replacement you’ve probably seen that each unit has a SEER rating. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, and is a reflection of the efficiency of your air conditioner. The higher the SEER rating, the higher the efficiency, which means the lower the utility costs. The government orders a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was produced after 2015, that number is based on region. Our certified pros will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best decision when considering air conditioner replacement.
If you’re looking to get the most efficiency possible out of your existing unit, there are a number of things you can do. First, as we always try to remind people, switch out your air filters.

We don’t want to sound like a broken record, but it’s a big deal.
Another thing to do is keep up with annual maintenance. Our certified professionals will clean your unit, check electrical connections and note any problems that could be impacting the efficiency of your unit.
