Stay in Control of Your Comfort and Your Energy Expenses

Cooling

Energy efficiency, aside from keeping cool, is one of the most vital features that homeowners look for today in an air conditioner. Heating and cooling bills make up nearly 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 help your wallet. Whether you want to replace your air conditioner or just get the best 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 ensure that it is as energy efficient as possible:

  1. SEER ratings – Every single air conditioner has this rating 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 fees could be. For every air conditioner manufactured after 2015, the government mandates a minimum SEER rating centered on your region, so newer systems are also the better route when comparing efficiency. Whether you are looking for a new air conditioner with our experts at Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. or simply checking the SEER rating of your current system, understanding the number can provide you with a lot of important information.
  2. Air filters – Exchanging the air filter in your air conditioner is an easy, but significant way to increase efficiency. Dirty air filters force 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 better, it can also keep your indoor air clean.
  3. Annual maintenance – This has probably been drilled into your head repeatedly from us, but we can’t emphasize how important annual check-ups are for your system. Our experts will examine electrical components, clean your unit and identify any potential problems before they become bigger issues, potentially impacting the efficiency of your unit.
