What Does SEER Mean?

An air conditioning systems energy efficiency is classified by the S.E.E.R. rating. The SEER, which stands for (seasonal energy efficiency ratio), is the rating of the energy efficiency of an air conditioning unit during a season of operation. Using air conditioning equipment with a higher SEER rating means the unit uses energy more efficiently than an air conditioning unit with a lower SEER rating.

Ten years ago the previous national SEER standard was of 10. The current national standard for the SEER rating is a minimum of 13 and these central air conditioning units are between 20% to 40% more efficient than the previous standard. This means you will spend less of your money each month on energy bills to cool your home each summer without sacrificing the comfort of you and your whole family.

Your thermostat is one of the most important energy devices in your home. A thermostat is a temperature sensitive switch that turns heating and cooling systems on and off in your home when the temperature reaches a preset limit. Operation can range from the old manual thermostats to programmable and smart thermostats that provide enhanced functionality and highly efficient operation of heating and air conditioning systems. At Dick Hill and Son we are proud to introduce the Bryant Housewise thermostat which is part of a new breed of comfort management devices that can save you on your heating and cooling energy costs.

Duct Sealing

In houses with a central forced air heating and cooling systems, ducts are used to distribute the conditioned air throughout the house. In the average house, however, about 20 to 30 percent of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts. The result is higher utility bills and difficulty keeping the house comfortable, no matter how the thermostat is set.

The sealing of your ducts to prevent leaks is even more important if the ducts are located in an unconditioned area such as an vented crawlspace or attic. Call us today to find out more about our Duct Services.
