Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

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

There are many features and things 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 one 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 the air conditioners manufactured after 2015, the government mandates a minimum SEER rating centered on your region, so newer systems are also the better route when it comes to efficiency. Whether you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at D & D Heating & AC or only checking the SEER rating of your current system, understanding the number can provide you with lots of important information.
  2. Air filters – Swapping the air filter in your air conditioner is an easy, but significant way to improve efficiency. Dirty air filters influence your system to work harder than it should to keep you cool. Not only can a new air filter help you have a system operating more effectively, it can also keep your indoor air clean.
  3. Annual maintenance – This has probably been drilled into your head repeatedly from us, but we can’t push how important ongoing check-ups are for your system. Our experts will examine electrical components, clean your unit and identify any potential problems before they become larger issues, potentially impacting the efficiency of your unit.
