Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses09/13/2016One of the most essential things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, aside from keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are searching for an air conditioner replacement or would like to get the most out of the efficiency of your existing system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling expenses can make up almost half of your total utility costs, so we want to help you do everything you can to not only keep cool, but keep costs down. If you’re looking into air conditioner replacement you’ve probably noticed each unit has a SEER rating. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, and is an indication of the efficiency of your air conditioner. The higher the SEER rating, the higher the efficiency, which means the lower the energy expenses. The government orders a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was manufactured after 2015, that number is based on region.
