One of the most essential things homeowners look for in an air conditioner, other than keeping them cool, is energy efficiency. Whether you are searching for an air conditioner replacement or wanting to get the most out of the efficiency of your current system, being energy efficient is important. Heating and cooling expenses can make up nearly half of your total energy costs, so we want to help you do everything you can to keep you cool and keep your costs down.
If you’re considering air conditioner replacement you’ve probably seen that each unit has a SEER rating. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, and is a reflection of the efficiency of your air conditioner. The higher the SEER rating, the higher the efficiency, which means the lower the utility costs. The government mandates a minimum SEER rating for all equipment that was produced after 2015, that number is based on region. Our certified pros will work with you and look at your home to help you make the best decision when considering air conditioner replacement.
If you’re wanting to get the most efficiency possible out of your present unit, there are a number of things you can do. First, as we always try to remind people, swap out your air filters.

We don’t want to sound like a broken record, but it’s a big deal.
