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 nearly half of every homeowner’s total utility bills, so keeping energy efficient doesn’t only extend the life of your system and help Earth, but it could also aide your wallet. Whether you want to replace your air conditioner or just get the greatest efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can impact your comfort.

There are a number of features and things to look for in an air conditioner to know that it is as energy efficient as possible:

  1. SEER ratings – Each air conditioner has a SEER rating 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 fees could be. For the air conditioners manufactured after 2015, the government has mandated a minimum SEER rating centered on your region, so newer systems can be the better route when looking at efficiency. Whether you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at McFadden Heating & Cooling or only checking the SEER rating of your existing system, understanding the number can provide you with some important information.
  2. Air filters – Changing the air filter in your air conditioner is a simple, but important way to enhance efficiency. Dirty air filters force 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 better, it can also keep your indoor air clean.
  3. Annual maintenance – This has probably been drilled into your head over and over again from us, but we can’t stress how important regular check-ups are for your system. Our experts will examine electrical components, clean your unit and catch any potential problems before they become larger issues, potentially affecting the efficiency of your unit.
