How to Make Your Home More Energy Efficient
Posted on: March 25, 2015
If you are about to make big changes in your home with a new cooling system, take the time to talk to your local AC company! Speaking with a professional before making any decisions can help you get the system most adapted to maximum benefits for your St. Petersburg residence.
Upgrading Your System
No matter what cooling unit you currently have, getting an upgrade will probably help you increase your energy efficiency because of the way newer units are designed. Still, not all of the ones currently on the market are best adapted to meet your specific needs, and some are certainly more efficient than others.
To get started on the shopping you can do research on the various ratings that exist to indicate which system can help you save on your monthly bills. Look for the required rating called Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating, or SEER, to help you determine which unit is worth your money. A rating of at least 13 is recommended.
The next best thing to do when comparing models is talk to your AC company. A reliable team is one that keeps up with the newest advancements in the market and will be able to give you tips and guide you throughout your selection process as well as installation.
Upgrading Your Service
Along with a naturally efficient unit, you’ll need to consider the multiple benefits of regular maintenance. Hiring a contractor to take care of your air conditioner is the best way to ensure it is working at peak efficiency, and not wasting you any money.
Great service companies will detect any minor issues before they become problems, all the while ensuring all other parts of the system are well maintained. St. Petersburg homeowners who put off maintenance and repairs often end up paying much more on their monthly bills because their air conditioner is working too hard on producing cool air.
