How can my A/C be more energy efficient?

air conditioner energy efficiency

To improve energy efficiency of your system, it is highly recommended that any leaking ducts become sealed immediately. In addition, you should replace dirty filters, clean the coils, and ensure that your outdoor condenser is not blocked. If buying a new A/C look for one with a high Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER). A SEER rating higher than 13 is recommended when considering a new unit.
