Air Conditioning Going Out?
June 12, 2017
The Summer Heat
It's that time of the year again, and the heat is relentless. Around this time, a lot of units are kicking into high gear and many cannot handle it. Either you have had your unit too long, or there is another issue happening. Investing in a new unit is a very big decision. In addition, not everyone can just stop what they are doing and consider a new unit. That is why reading about them first is a great idea. Knowing what you are investing into is a great asset, along with energy efficient systems. Whether you know it or not, older units use a lot more energy than newer units, and that is because well... they are newer. It is a simple concept, but one that should not be shrugged off. When your AC unit goes out, your initial thought is either a coil is out or you are low on Freon. It is normal for all units to do this so you are not alone, however sometimes replacing specific parts can add up over time. With advancing technology, units are becoming smarter and more efficient, which saves you money in the long run!
Where are they at?
Air conditioners may look similar, but their Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) can vary widely. Higher SEER numbers save more money spent on electricity. A 13 SEER air conditioner, the EPA "current minimum standard", uses 23% less energy then a 10 SEER unit (EPA standard up until Jan. 2006). Even though 13 SEER is the minimum efficiency available, we currently offer a line of air conditioners that start at 13 SEER and go all the way up to a 21 SEER . Depending on your average usage, higher SEER air conditioners can significantly reduce your electric bill.
Additionally, we offer many air conditioners that have advanced features, such as 2-stage compressors and variable speed fan operation. These features not only improve the comfort level of your home, but can provide additional energy savings as well.
