Save on Energy Costs
A new federal regulation will help rein in mounting energy costs. As of January 2006 manufacturers are no longer able to produce residential central air conditioners with efficiencies less than 13 SEER. The minimum Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, or SEER, is up from 10, which was in place since 1992. Basically, the higher the SEER rating, the more energy efficient the central air conditioning unit and the less electricity you’ll need to cool your home.
Here are some guidelines on what the 13 SEER standard may mean for you:
Purchasing a bigger system means higher up-front cost. Air conditioners with a higher SEER rating get bigger. In order to achieve a higher efficiency to save money on energy costs, manufacturers need to install more coils to more efficiently transfer heat. More copper, aluminum, and steel mean a higher-priced unit. Air Conditioners with higher efficiency are often times have more advanced technology and are more complicated and are more expensive. With these technologies comes comfort, convenience, efficiency, and reliability for your family. If you are going to be in your home for a long period of time many.
Lower operating costs. A central air conditioning unit rated at a 13 SEER uses up to 30 percent less electricity than a 10 SEER system. With higher energy costs predicted in many parts of the country, consumers will have that payback on the unit much quicker with less electricity being used. The tips below can help you find the right hardware and technician to install your system, whether you’re replacing an older air conditioner or installing one for the first time.
