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 look for today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling bills make up approximately half of every homeowner’s total utility bills, so staying energy efficient doesn’t only lengthen the life of your system and help our planet, but it could also impact your wallet. Whether you might replace your air conditioner or just get the optimum efficiency out of your current system, energy efficiency can impact your comfort.

There are several 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 one and it evaluates 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 mandates a minimum SEER rating based on your region, so newer systems offer a better route when it comes to efficiency. So if you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Oak Point Heating and Air LLC or simply checking the SEER rating of your current system, knowing the number can provide you with some 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 influence 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 effectively, it can also keep your indoor air clean.
  3. Annual maintenance – This has more than likely been drilled into your head over and over again 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 identify any potential problems before they become larger issues, potentially harming the efficiency of your unit.
