Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

Energy efficiency, aside from keeping cool, is one of the most important features that homeowners search for today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling costs make up nearly half of every homeowner’s total utility bills, so remaining 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 influence your comfort.

There are several 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 this rating and it measures the efficiency of your system. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio; the higher the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the lower your utility costs could be. For the air conditioners manufactured after 2015, the government requires a minimum SEER rating based on your region, so newer systems offer a better route when it comes to efficiency. Regardless if you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Wallpe Heating & Cooling or simply checking the SEER rating of your present system, having the number can provide you with some 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 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.
  3. Annual maintenance – This has most 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 check electrical components, clean your unit and monitor any potential problems before they become bigger issues, potentially affecting the efficiency of your unit.
