  • When purchasing a window unit for your home or business, it is important to factor in the size of the room. If you buy too large of a unit, you could be wasting energy and money.

  • When it comes to the right central air conditioning system, the SEER number should be a 13 or higher. If possible try to get an EER number of 11 or higher for the most efficiency. It may cost more at first but save you money in the long way.

  • Regular maintenance on your cooling system can save you big bucks. Change the filters out monthly and have preventative maintenance done on it before the start of the season.
