If you’re thinking of upgrading your air conditioner for your cooling needs, we always recommend energy-efficient units because we know it’s the best money-saving strategy for your home. Here are three things to consider:Cooling
- Buy the Right Sized Unit- The right size air conditioner will ensure your home is cooled efficiently without wasting energy. An air conditioner that is too small will have to work overtime to keep your space cool, which means your energy bill will be higher than it needs to be. Likewise, an AC that is too large for your space won’t be able to run a full cooling cycle. That constant start-and-stop uses more energy than needed over time and will be less effective in cooling your home.
- Look at Energy Efficiency Ratings- When it comes to energy efficiency ratings, an ENERGY STAR label ensures your unit meets the government standard for energy efficiency without sacrificing features or functionality. This means that your unit will help in the fight against climate change, while saving you money on your energy bills.
Hire the Right HVAC Contractor- Your home’s air conditioning unit is one of the most complex systems in your home. To ensure you’re getting the right cooling solution for your home, consider scheduling a consultation with a licensed contractor who can help walk you through the process of upgrading your air conditioning and help you figure out how much you can be saving on your energy bill with an energy-efficient model.
