Benefits of Choosing a High Efficiency Air Conditioner
If you’re looking at replacing your air conditioner, high efficiency systems are worth serious consideration. Efficiency is measured by SEER, or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. When comparing air conditioners, the SEER rating will tell you how efficient one is compared to another.
Higher SEER numbers indicate higher efficiency. The minimum SEER rating is 13, with a rating above 16 considered high efficiency. Think about SEER as MPG in your automobile. The higher the SEER the better MPH you are getting. Here are some great reasons to consider upgrading to higher efficiency:
Lower Utility Bills– High efficiency systems with higher SEER rating use less energy, which translates to less money you spend on energy bills. Switching from an old 8 SEER unit to a 16 SEER one could save you 50% on your energy bill. Bottom line: higher efficiency = lower bills.
Incentives and Rebates– There are many government incentives or manufacturers’ rebates. By taking advantage of these offers, a high efficiency system can end up costing significantly less than anticipated. A good place to find what’s available to you is dsireusa.org.
Environmental Impact– Because high efficiency systems use less energy they contribute to fewer greenhouse gas emissions. Less electricity means fewer fossil fuels being burned. This is good for your wallet and good for the environment.
Humidity– In our market high humidity is not a common problem until August. High efficiency systems more efficiently remove moisture during the conditioning cycle, thus keeping you more comfortable and saving money in the process. Variable speed systems run longer cycles at lower pressures, helping to cool the air comfortably. Air that cools too fast without proper moisture removal can lead to mold and other airborne problems.
In addition to the above, a home with a high efficiency air conditioning system can be attractive to a potential buyer if you’re looking to sell. You’ll be passing on the monthly savings to them!
We are advocates of higher efficiency systems that use less energy, save you money, and provide better humidity control. We want you to buy from somebody you know, like and trust. It’s important to work with a reputable contractor who can properly size a system that’s the best fit for your home. See your local BBB for reputable contractors.
