SEER rating is the “Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio”. It is a type of measurement that is used to determine how efficient a system is under an average number of changes in weather throughout a season.
The higher the SEER rating the more efficient the system. Usually these systems cost a little more than the average system but over a period of time you can see returns on your investment by the amount of money saved on your energy bills year after year.
The right size system is paramount in your home.  Too large and your system will short cycle and not control humidity correctly.  Too small and it will run continuously.  Please contact us for your free analysis today.  We will be happy to configure just the right system for your needs.
No it is not. Bigger is not always better in the HVAC industry. A larger air conditioner uses more electricity and costs more to purchase, install and upkeep. A properly sized unit will provide the most efficient energy use and most comfort in your home. When buying a home comfort system, selecting the right size is crucial. For instance, an air conditioner that is too large will cool your home quickly but you still may not feel comfortable. It will satisfy the thermostat before it can remove sufficient moisture from the air. However, a system that is too small just cannot get the job done. As Trane Comfort Specialists, we can help you determine the right size system for your home comfort needs.
Check filters every two months and replace as needed.

If you have a 15 year old unit it could be as little as 6 SEER. Most people set their thermostat around 78 degrees in the summer to save costs and with a new Trane high efficiency air conditioner you could save as much as $600 per summer on a typical 4 ton unit while having your thermostat set a few degrees colder.
A programmable thermostat is programmed for when you leave your house and then return home. The thermostat turns of the furnace during the hours you are not home so that energy is not used to keep the house warm while you are at work. The thermostat will then turn back on 30 minutes before you come home so your house is at the perfect temperature when you are home. These thermostats save up to 15% on your energy bills during the winter and 10% in the summer.
They are not noisy if you install new Trane components in your system. Old units were not built with the quality materials that are used today. Trane also installs sound insulators on the compressor as well as a weather guard top that not only reduces noise but increases the life of the unit by not letting debris get into the system.
Common settings is 85 degrees in the summer if you have air conditioning and 60 in the winter if you will be gone for a couple of days. These settings will keep most plants alive and will keep pipes from freezing and bursting in the winter.

ENERGY SAVING TIPS

If your heating and cooling system is over 10 years old, you’re probably cheating yourself out of energy and money. You could be paying 30-50% more in utility costs than you should be. We can help you lower those bills and make you more comfortable at the same time. Heating and cooling your home uses more energy dollars than any other system in your home. Typically, 44% of your utility bill goes for heating and cooling. You can save money and increase comfort by properly maintaining and upgrading your equipment.

An energy-efficient furnace or air conditioner alone won’t have as great an impact on your energy bills as using the whole house approach. By combining proper equipment, upgrades and maintenance with appropriate thermostat settings, insulation and weatherization, you can cut your energy bills in half.
