One of the most important things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, aside from keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are searching for an air conditioner replacement or looking to get the most out of the efficiency of your existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling expenses can make up nearly half of your total utility bills, so we want to help you do everything you can to keep you cool and keep your costs down.
If you’re thinking about air conditioner replacement you’ve probably noted that each unit has a SEER rating. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, and is a measurement of the efficiency of your air conditioner. The higher the SEER rating, the higher the efficiency, which means the lower the heating and cooling expenses. The government mandates a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was made after 2015, that number is based on region. Our certified experts will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best selection when looking into air conditioner replacement.
If you’re looking to get the most efficiency possible out of your current unit, there are a variety 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 important.
Another thing to do is always have regular maintenance. Our certified technicians will clean your unit, check electrical connections and notice any problems that may be impacting the efficiency of your unit.
