Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

Cooling

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

There are a number of features and factors 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 superior 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 it comes to efficiency. Regardless if you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Innovative Mechanical, LLC or just checking the SEER rating of your present system, understanding the number can provide you with a lot of important information.
  2. Air filters – Changing the air filter in your air conditioner is an easy, but key way to enhance efficiency. Dirty air filters cause 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 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 emphasize how important annual check-ups are for your system. Our experts will review electrical components, clean your unit and identify any potential problems before they become bigger issues, potentially impacting the efficiency of your unit.
