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 look for today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling fees make up almost half of every homeowner’s total utility bills, so staying energy efficient doesn’t only elongate the life of your system and help our planet, but it could also help your wallet. Whether you might replace your air conditioner or just get the greatest efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can impact your comfort.

There are a number of features and factors 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 greater the efficiency and the lower your utility costs could be. For every air conditioner manufactured after 2015, the government mandates a minimum SEER rating centered on your region, so newer systems are also the better route when looking at efficiency. So if you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Brogan Heating & AC Inc or simply checking the SEER rating of your existing system, understanding the number can provide you with a lot of important information.
  2. Air filters – Exchanging the air filter in your air conditioner is an easy, but important way to enhance efficiency. Dirty air filters cause 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 better, it can also keep your indoor air clean.
  3. Annual maintenance – This has more than likely been drilled into your head repeatedly from us, but we can’t emphasize 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 bigger issues, potentially affecting the efficiency of your unit.
