Considering a new central air conditioning system?
We know that it is not an easy decision but you can cut your electricity costs over the long term by investing a bit more on new cooling equipment.
When we talk about a high-efficiency unit, we mean how efficient is it in turning dollars into cold air. The higher the SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating), the more efficient the unit and the lower your overall cooling expenses will be over time.
Higher SEER ratings mean higher savings.
Older air conditioning systems have a SEER rating of 10 or under. Today’s more efficient air conditioning systems have SEER ratings as high as 23. Here’s a great example:
- A 16 SEER (30,000 BTU) high-efficiency air conditioner will use 1875 watts of energy per hour.
- A 13 SEER air conditioner of the same size will use close to 2308 watts of energy per hour.
- Altogether, there is a savings of 28% in your energy bill!
When you choose a high-efficiency air conditioning system, you’re not only saving money in the long run but you’re getting one of the best and quiet cooling systems in the market.
