When properly installed, a central air conditioner can provide efficient cooling for your home or business. Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) is the rating of the unit in terms of the cooling output during a typical cooling season divided by the total electrical energy input during that same period. In other words, the higher the rating, the more efficient the unit is and the more money you can save in utility bills. Air conditioners that are 16 SEER and above may be Energy Star Qualified and may qualify for rebates from your utility company.

Saving energy not only helps keep your utility bills down, it also helps avoid costly upgrades and new buildings to produce energy. By not building new power plants, power lines, substations, and transformers, the cost of running electricity is kept lower for everyone. One of the biggest opportunities to save money is in making sure that when you are not at your home or business that you set the temperature to a higher setting. The easiest way to accomplish this it to have a programmable thermostat. If you have a normal schedule throughout the week, a programmable thermostat can be an easy answer to help you save money. A Wi-Fi thermostat give the additional benefit of being able to access on your smart device to easily adjust the temperature from almost anywhere.
