Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

Energy efficiency, aside from staying cool, is one of the most vital features that homeowners want today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling bills make up almost 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 might replace your air conditioner or just get the greatest efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can affect your comfort.

There are many features and items to look for in an air conditioner to ensure 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 bills could be. For all air conditioners manufactured after 2015, the government mandates a minimum SEER rating centered on your region, so newer systems offer a better route when comparing efficiency. So if you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at True Home Heating and Air Conditioning or simply checking the SEER rating of your existing system, knowing the number can provide you with lots of important information.
  2. Air filters – Swapping the air filter in your air conditioner is a quick, but key way to improve 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 multiple times from us, but we can’t stress 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 affecting the efficiency of your unit.
