Posted on: May 31, 2016

When it comes to keeping your home cool this season the more efficient your air conditioner is, the more you’ll save on energy bills. Simple concept, right? Although it may seem easy to understand, lots of homeowners aren’t getting the most bang for their buck. See the tips below to find out how to save this summer.

Air conditioner efficiency is measured by its Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, or SEER Rating. Keep this in mind while shopping – it will make all the difference. Think about a SEER rating like the gas mileage you get in your car. The higher the miles per gallon, the more efficient the car, right?

The same goes for air conditioners. The higher the SEER rating, the more efficient the system. The same goes for air conditioners. The higher the SEER rating, the more efficient the system. And if you’re having a new system installed, a higher SEER rating may qualify you for additional rebates from your energy provider. It’s also important to understand that the SEER rating on one brand, is exactly the same as the SEER rating on any other brand.

We know how devastating energy bills can be and that’s why we’re here to help. Contact the AC experts at ABC today. Our techs will gladly help explain the differences between models and help you choose the perfect system for your home.
