Invest In High-Efficiency Air Conditioning Today, And Enjoy The Payoff For Years To Come

High-efficiency air conditioning can be a substantial investment for some Wabash Valley homeowners, but it also offers substantial energy savings for many years. Today’s high-efficiency air conditioners generate even more savings than those of the past. In fact, the U.S. Department of Energy’s research shows that a new high-efficiency model could save as much as 40 percent compared to a model that’s only 10 years older.

Compared to standard air conditioners, high-efficiency air conditioners offer many benefits:

  • Energy-efficient design reduces operating costs and utility bills, allowing the equipment to pay for itself several times over during its life span.
  • Raises your home’s performance and property value.
  • More environmentally sustainable, using fewer fossil fuels and creating fewer greenhouse gases.
  • Federal and state tax incentives, as well as possible rebates from other sources like utility companies, make the initial investment more affordable.

Air conditioning efficiency is measured by the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, or the SEER. SEER rates how much cool air the A/C creates compared to how much energy it consumes during operation. Units with high SEERs, from 16 to 23, are considered high efficiency because they convert most of the fuel they consume into usable cool air.

Research shows that A/Cs with high SEER ratings save more energy over the course of their life spans than lower-rated, or conventional systems. The savings that are possible far outweigh the initial investment.

Thirteen is considered a “middle-grade” SEER rating, and it’s currently the U.S. government’s minimum requirement for all air conditioning equipment being produced. However, older systems can still be sold and installed, so if you’re purchasing new equipment be sure to ask about the manufacturing date. Also, be aware that rating will decrease with regular use. Keep up with preventive maintenance to keep your system running at peak efficiency.

High-efficiency air conditioning is a great investment that keeps you comfortable while giving back to your home, your wallet, and the environment. Contact Paitson Bros. if you have more questions. We’ve been proud to serve the Wabash Valley since 1922.
