Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

Energy efficiency, aside from staying cool, is one of the most important features that homeowners look 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 the planet, but it could also aide your wallet. Whether you are looking to replace your air conditioner or just obtain the best efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can impact your comfort.

There are several 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 better the efficiency and the lower your utility bills could be. For the air conditioners manufactured after 2015, the government requires a minimum SEER rating based on your region, so newer systems can be the better route when comparing efficiency. So if you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning or simply checking the SEER rating of your current system, knowing the number can provide you with lots of important information.
  2. Air filters – Changing the air filter in your air conditioner is a quick, but key way to increase 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 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 push how important ongoing check-ups are for your system. Our experts will check electrical components, clean your unit and catch any potential problems before they become major issues, potentially impacting the efficiency of your unit.
