Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

Energy efficiency, aside from keeping cool, is one of the most vital features that homeowners want today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling fees make up almost half of every homeowner’s total utility bills, so keeping energy efficient doesn’t only lengthen the life of your system and help our planet, 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 influence your comfort.

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

  1. SEER ratings – Each and every air conditioner has one and it measures the efficiency of your system. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio; the higher the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the lower your utility bills 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 it comes to efficiency. So if you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc. or only checking the SEER rating of your existing system, having the number can provide you with some important information.
  2. Air filters – Exchanging the air filter in your air conditioner is a quick, but key way to improve 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 better, it can also keep your indoor air clean.
  3. Annual maintenance – This has more than likely been drilled into your head multiple times 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 identify any potential problems before they become major issues, potentially impacting the efficiency of your unit.
