Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

Energy efficiency, aside from keeping cool, is one of the most significant features that homeowners search for today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling fees make up approximately half of every homeowner’s total utility bills, so remaining energy efficient doesn’t only extend the life of your system and help Earth, but it could also impact your wallet. Whether you are looking to replace your air conditioner or just obtain the greatest efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can impact your comfort.

There are many features and items to look for in an air conditioner to make sure 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 better the efficiency and the lower your utility costs could be. For all air conditioners manufactured after 2015, the government requires a minimum SEER rating based on your region, so newer systems offer a better route when comparing efficiency. Whether you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Symbiont Service Corp or only checking the SEER rating of your existing system, understanding the number can provide you with some important information.
  2. Air filters – Swapping the air filter in your air conditioner is a simple, but significant way to enhance efficiency. Dirty air filters influence your system to work harder than it should to keep you cool. Not only can a fresh air filter help you have a system operating more efficiently, 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 stress how important annual check-ups are for your system. Our experts will review electrical components, clean your unit and monitor any potential problems before they become larger issues, potentially affecting the efficiency of your unit.
