Efficient AC Systems Can Save You Money
Not sure if you should repair or replace your air conditioning unit? Well, consider this: if you’re operating an inefficient air conditioning system that breaks down a lot, it’s likely that it’s going to break down again. That means more expensive emergency air conditioning repairs and the possibility of damage to the other components of your heating and cooling system.
It is important to consider the ongoing cost factor of keeping your existing air conditioning unit. You could save up to 60% on your home energy bills with a new, high-efficiency air conditioner. You see, even if your air conditioning unit is only a few years old, it could be inefficient by today’s energy efficiency standards. Installing a new, high-efficiency air conditioning system can actually pay for itself in energy savings within a relatively short time.
In Birmingham, air conditioning costs can be particularly high, which is why it’s important to make sure that you’re reducing your home energy costs by making a well-informed decision about whether to repair or replace the air conditioning system in your Birmingham, Alabama area home.
About Cooling Efficiency
Cooling efficiency for your air conditioning equipment is indicated by its SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating, which tells you how efficiently your air conditioning unit uses electricity. In general, the higher the SEER rating, the less electricity your unit will use to cool your home. The typical SEER rating of units made before 1992 is about 6.0. In 1992, the government established the minimum cooling efficiency standard for units installed in new homes at 10.0 SEER. High-efficiency units have a SEER of at least 12.0; the maximum available is about 17.
